Innovative ideas and start-ups need investment and structured support to thrive and make a tangible impact. The Act for Impact days are a collaborative project timed to coincide with the biggest tech events around the world and provide a platform for Swedish tech companies, investors and partners to actively pursue mutually beneficial opportunities that have a goal of meeting one or more of the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals.

  • End hunger and achieve food security and sustainable agriculture
  • Empower women and girls through gender equality
  • Create and supply affordable and sustainable energy
  • Deliver full and productive employment and sustainable economic growth
  • Build resilient and inclusive infrastructure and industrialisation
  • Reduce inequality within and between countries
  • Make cities and human settlements inclusive, safe and sustainable
  • Tackle climate change, and
  • Strengthen the means of implementation and revitalise the global partnership for sustainable development
