Start-Ups for SDGs during Global Entrepreneurship Week 2018
Thursday 15th November 2018, 15.00 – 19.00 CEST, General Assembly, UN, Palais des Nations
The Start-Ups for SDGs is a pitching event organised by UNCTAD, taking place during Global Entrepreneurship Week. Ten candidates from developing countries pitch their enterprises to an Expert Panel of impact investors for feedback, guidance and the opportunity to secure funding.
Here are 3 easy ways to get involved:
1.Ideas To Change The World Posters: Get your children and youth to draw and describe their innovative enterprise solutions to achieve Sustainable Development Goal #13 – Climate Action.
We’ll provide an Ideas Canvas template and instructions to generate the incredible ideas for enterprises, using Flow In Action’s learn to move mountains® approach.
The posters will be used to create a display inside and outside of the event at the UN, Palais des Nations.
2.Flash Mob for SDGs: Come along with your children and youth and take part in the youth-led Flash Mob for SDGs.
Whilst the Expert Panel are evaluating the pitches, the young people in the audience will lead the audience in a ‘flash mob’ singing/dancing activity with the theme of celebrating positive action.
3.Be Part of the Audience: Inspire children and youth by coming along to the event, to hear and see young entrepreneur’s sharing their ideas. Use it as a platform for encouraging them as innovators and entrepreneurs as they view the ‘entrepreneur’s journey’ inside the United Nations.
