Amsterdam Impact, an initiative by the City of Amsterdam, is here to strengthen the ecosystem for all companies that tackle societal challenges through entrepreneurship. We will guide you through the ecosystem, support you, and offer you the tools you need to make a bigger impact.
Amsterdam Impact, the City of Amsterdam’s impact entrepreneurship initiative, is working to nurture social entrepreneurship in the city. But it also wants to contribute to a much more ambitious goal: transforming the whole economy into one that creates social as well as financial value. In 2021, we partnered with social enterprise news network Pioneers Post on the Cities of Impact project, which included two series of articles. One was showcasing impact businesses in Amsterdam, and one, which is summarised below, was exploring the steps we’re taking to build an ‘impact city’. From education to market access, nurturing neighbourhoods to facilitating capital, find out more about how we accelerate the transition to a new economy.
Amsterdam is home to many social enterprises that put people and the planet at the heart of their work while also generating jobs and income. In 2021, Amsterdam Impact partnered with social enterprise news network Pioneers Post on a series of articles turning the spotlight on just a few of these innovative businesses found on the streets of Amsterdam.
Building Better Business, a collaboration between Amsterdam Impact, the City of Amsterdam's impact entrepreneurship initiative, B Lab, and Economy for the Common Good, aims to help mainstream companies accelerate their social and environmental impact and get certified for their performance.
