Our story begins with an observation

Social innovation is not yet sufficiently taken into account by public authorities, companies and investors like technological innovation.

Develop a European digital and social model

In 2017, our group went to the Web Summit in Lisbon to meet other social good stakeholders, who use technology to deepen, facilitate and help their work. To our surprise, we found only a few social entrepreneurs, start-ups and innovators among a crowd of over 60,000 people.

Over the following year, we gathered into a collective and participated in many events and always came to the same conclusion: social innovation is not yet sufficiently taken into account by public authorities, companies and investors like technological innovation.

To solve this problem, the Social Good Accelerator was created.

Our community was built as a European Network for People, Planet and Social Tech. It soon became the European movement engaged in the digital transition of social economy stakeholders.

With our delegation of associations, social entrepreneurs, social innovators and foundations, we started working together to encourage Tech and Social Good stakeholders to work together to create innovative solutions in the European Union.
