The costs for the program itself will be covered by Allianz. Participating teams from Greece, Indonesia and Spain can apply for an Allianz international travel and accommodation stipend for the events taking place in Munich (i.e. the Academy in March and the Encouraging Future Generations Day in July).


Allianz and Impact Hub Munich believe that social entrepreneurs play a vital part in accelerating the worldwide adoption of sustainable and inclusive technologies, policies, and behaviours. It is the aim of the program to support the entrepreneurs in getting fit for investment, growth and ready to generate global impact. Allianz and Impact Hub Munich further aim to catalyse investment into social entrepreneurs by nurturing the impact investment ecosystem at the four participating locations. To this end, we work with local investor communities, show them the opportunities and potential of impact investment and link them to internationally operating investor networks through the program.
