We support the development of impact entrepreneurial projects in Ticino
Impact Club is a program of Impact Hub Ticino that aims to support the development of impact entrepreneurial and social innovation projects in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland by facilitating meetings with a selected network of foundations and individuals active in philanthropy and impact investing.
A free path for change-makers
Each year Impact Club offers early stage for-profit and nonprofit projects based in the Italian-speaking part of Switzerland a 5-month incubation programme. Impact Club's goal is to support projects in developing a sustainable business model that combines impact with an adequate economic return, and to make them ready to receive funding.
Thanks to a collaborative, inclusive and iterative approach, we offer the opportunity to collaborate in order to have a tangible impact on the territory to entrepreneurs and people working in social innovation, philanthropy and impact finance.
The incubation program is free of charge and has a value of CHF 15,000 per team. Impact Club has a zero equity and commission policy. This means you will not be charged for your participation and the idea developed will remain entirely yours.
8 projects are participating in the first edition of the incubator, which will end on 30 January.
