About this Event

‘This Impact Shakers Talk is part of a joint Impact Shakers & Maze X effort to promote the impact ecosystem and its entrepreneurs.’

The accelerator scene has boomed in recent years with vertical segmentation and topic-based accelerators popping up around the globe. Impact accelerators emerged to help speed up the growth of social impact ventures. Rita Casimiro is among the pioneers of the field in Europe at Maze X and will share with us valuable insights how they reacted when Covid-19 hit and they had to move the entire acceleration programme from offline to online.
