This week the Impact Now roadshow topped off its tour throughout Belgium with a last event in Brussels in the presence of His Majesty the King of Belgium.
On the 24th of June everyone striving for positive societal change in Belgium – from entrepreneurs and investors to organizations, public authorities and engaged citizens – was invited to the capital. The Impact Now organizers, among which SI2 Fund, partnered up once more to offer a full programme of workshops, keynotes and networking opportunities to support, inspire and connect people that aim to address pressing societal issues.
At the heart of this event were the many entrepreneurs that act for our society and environment. To put their efforts in the spotlight, we awarded six prizes to companies that put societal impact at the core of their activities and can be considered a role model within their ecosystem: Give a day, Standard 18650, TribuNews, Into The Spoon, Droits Quotidiens and Neibo. The substantial contribution of impact entrepreneurs was furthermore highlighted by the presence and words of his Majesty the King of Belgium: “I support you wholeheartedly, social entrepreneurs, who seek to offer innovative answers to many societal challenges. Our society needs you, your ideas, your projects, your enthusiasm.”
We hope the end of this roadshow will be the beginning of many more initiatives and collaborations ‘on the road to positive change’.
