The leading global event dedicated to social entrepreneurship and to the new economy
Every year, Impact² brings together 1,000+ decision makers, business leaders, entrepreneurs, investors, and journalists from 50+ countries in the Paris City Hall to discuss solutions to our planet’s most pressing challenges. We were honored to welcome some prestigious guests during previous editions.:.
Qualifying rounds take place in 10 countries worldwide. A local jury gathering seasoned experts, leaders from the public and private sectors, and journalists select the winners.
The Grand Finale’s selection committee, chaired by the Mayor of Paris - Anne Hidalgo - and gathering women of excellence, select 1 winner, whose name is revealed on stage during Impact² in Paris City Hall.
After the 4th edition, the French newspaper Le Monde even referred to it as the “Davos of social entrepreneurship”.
