The City of Amsterdam, in cooperation with Impact Hub Amsterdam, selected 9 social enterprises to take part in the Amsterdam City Fellowship, a business development programme. For approximately 8 months, social entrepreneurs refine their business models with the aim to co-create and implement innovative solutions to health-related urban challenges such as clean air, mobility and climate resilience.
On 27 June we are hosting the finale of the Fellowship’s Business Model Challenge phase with a Stakeholder Forum, where all 9 participating social enterprises will pitch their businesses to an audience of potential partners and clients. 4 organisations will then be chosen to explore collaboration with the City and its network in facilitated meetings, and further develop their product or service.
Among others, our entrepreneurs are looking for:
* healthcare institutions who want to increase a wider audience’s access to transparent physical and mental healthcare,
* corporates who would like to engage their employees in supporting people with a mental disability,
* school boards who want to have their kids eat less sugar,
* city organisations who are aiming to improve air quality.
