The idea for the Impact Festival as a platform for sustainable technologies and innovations came to our initiators Fabian and Moritz earlier this year during a stay in Asia. Triggered by the enormous effects of climate change, which are particularly visible in emerging markets, the two were reminded of the urgency of the topic.
Due to globalization and the extreme increase in outsourcing of the production of goods, we (as a western nation) have the obligation to take a leading role in the fight against the climate crisis, as well as the privilege to deal with the issue of sustainability.
Thus, the two have made it their goal to create a platform that links technological solutions from innovators such as green start ups with corporations and investors in order to jointly drive sustainable transformation and fostering #SDG17. Equally important are appropriate framework conditions set by politics and the perspective of the younger generation and science.
Moritz, as an investment manager with experience in impact investing, and Fabian, who brings start-up experience and has worked in the field of e-mobility, initiated the project in the Main Incubator in Frankfurt, which provides the perfect environment for future topics and sustainable visions.
As the year progresses, our team has also grown. From 2 friends with an idea, we have grown into a highly motivated and dynamic team of 7 talents with the aim of driving forward sustainable change.
