An Accelerator Journey across Four Continents: Yunus Social Business & the MAN Impact Accelerator support innovative social entrepreneurs for transport & logistics!
Access to mobility is a key driver to alleviate poverty. More and more social entrepreneurs are tackling the issue and are providing transportation means to the base of the pyramid or are developing innovative solutions for last-mile distribution of essential goods and services.
In order to support such social ventures, Yunus Social Business and MAN Truck & Bus have partnered to launch the MAN Impact Accelerator. The six-month program gives up to 10 startups from Europe, India and South Africa access to MAN’s expertise and infrastructure, to the Volkswagen group and a pool of over 300 mentors from the Yunus Social Business network. It also takes the startups on a paid journey through mobility hotspots in Munich, Mumbai, Cape Town and San Francisco, exposing startups to the most innovative entrepreneurial networks in mobility hotspots and Silicon Valley. The program will be further supported by leading tech companies in the US and Europe.
You can find more information via http://impact.man.eu/. Applications are open until 1st of October 2017. You can support the program by sharing this opportunity on social media as well as directly with social ventures in your network who may benefit from the program. If you are interested in partnering with the program, please feel free to reach out to Daniel Nowack at Yunus Social Business directly.
