Capital of Impact, that’s The Hague.
The Hague is not only the International City of Peace and Justice but also the Europe’s Capital of Impact. The city is home to a thriving community of entrepreneurs incubating innovation for a better world. Given its status as ‘ImpactCity’ with ‘impact economy’ as its core, The Hague is the logical choice to host the Impact Fair. Funding is a critical issue which every entrepreneur faces, and an event connecting entrepreneurs with investors will further strengthen the foothold of impact entrepreneurship in The Hague, and beyond.
The one-afternoon program facilitates meetings between scale-up companies and their potential investors in one-on-one or one-on-two speed dating sessions, enabling companies to meet maximum number of investors in an efficient and effective way.

Sustainable Development Goals
The Sustainable Development Goals of the United Nations are a key element of the Impact Summit program. These goals are a group of targets set by the UN aimed at governments, NGOs and private industry to use to frame their agendas and political policies. There are 17 headline areas and a group of 169 specific targets under the headings. As a result of the Impact Summit 2016, 22 investors launched the Sustainable Development Goals Investing (SDGI) Agenda with the aim to strengthen intermediation and cooperation between the financial sector, the Dutch government and regulators, and help accelerate and trigger impact investments at scale.
