The world is being hit by sev­er­al crises simul­ta­ne­ous­ly, which are mutu­al­ly depen­dent. We refer to them as the poly­cri­sis.

Con­se­quent­ly, the solu­tions also need to be inter­con­nect­ed

As an incu­ba­tor and accel­er­a­tor for impact star­tups, twice a year we offer a var­ied 6‑month pro­gram that focus­es pri­mar­i­ly on col­lec­tive impact. We estab­lish cross-orga­ni­za­tion­al col­lec­tives to tack­le spe­cif­ic chal­lenges togeth­er. As part of PHINEO gAG, we prof­it from 10 years expe­ri­ence with impact inves­ting, mea­sure­ment and man­age­ment.

Apply for our next pro­gram: Poly­cri­sis #5

Our 6‑month pro­gram is launched every April and Octo­ber. Appli­ca­tions that we receive between Feb­ru­ary 1 and July 31 can start in Octo­ber. Appli­ca­tions received between August 1 and Jan­u­ary 31 and can start in April. If you would like to join our pro­gram at a lat­er date, you can indi­cate this in your appli­ca­tion.

Need a 1:1 call?

Want feed­back on your doc­u­ments before you apply? Lets make an appoint­ment for a video call as soon as pos­si­ble. Someo­ne from the PHINEO Star­tups team will give feed­back on your pitch deck. After that, you have until the end of the sub­mis­si­on peri­od to integra­te our feed­back into your appli­ca­tion.

You need to accept func­tion­al cook­ies to use the sched­ul­ing fea­ture.

Trans­form­ing our econ­o­my
from cause to solu­tion

Our eco­nom­ic sys­tem should be trans­formed from caus­ing to solv­ing many of these crises. We don’t need short-term prof­it max­imi­sa­tion at the expense of peo­ple and envi­ron­ment.
We need sus­tain­able busi­ness mod­els that serve soci­ety in the long term and ensure our sur­vival.

Sys­tem change with impact star­tups

Impact star­tups plays a key role in address­ing the var­i­ous, con­stant­ly chan­ging cri­ses and chal­len­ges we face in socie­ty. They address­es one or more UN Sus­tain­able Devel­op­ment Goal (SDGs) at the core of its busi­ness. This means: if you remove the impact you also remove the busi­ness.

Mind­set Shift:
Impact becomes the new nor­mal

What if every founder would devel­op new busi­ness mod­els and approa­ches to make our world more liva­ble and sus­tain­able? All new star­tups would be impact star­tups! Their suc­cess could moti­vate estab­lished com­pa­nies to change their busi­ness mod­els and prac­tices.

Do you have an idea for a solu­tion?

For solu­ti­ons to long-term cri­ses with­in the 17 Sus­tainab­le Devel­op­ment Goals (SDGs)?

Or quick solu­ti­ons to acu­te cri­ses such as the 2015/2016 refu­gee cri­sis, the COVID-19 cri­sis, and the cur­rent war against Ukrai­ne?

We can help you with our accel­er­a­tor pro­gram

In our accel­er­a­tor pro­gram, we will guide you for 6 months to turn your idea into real­i­ty.
We offer you access to fund­ing, coach­ing from expe­ri­enced men­tors, access to our net­work.

It’s a match?

We sup­port star­tups in all sta­ges. Do you have an almost finis­hed pro­to­ty­pe that you can test or an exis­ting start­up that you want to bring to a new lev­el? Your team con­sists of at least two foun­ders. Non-pro­­fit as well as for-pro­­fit organiz­a­ti­ons can apply.

Our team

We are a diverse and inter­dis­ci­pli­nary team of impact-ori­ent­ed pro­fes­sion­als with many years of start­up expe­ri­ence.
We are well con­nect­ed in the impact com­mu­ni­ty. Let’s con­nect!
