      CLOSING CEREMONY /// MAN Impact Accelerator (Batch #2)

      Access to mobility is the single most important driver to alleviate poverty. The MAN Impact Accelerator is built to scale social ventures in transport and logistics with a considerable impact on society. We are very pleased to invite you to the Closing Ceremony of the MAN Impact Accelerator (Batch #2) on June 25th 2019! This day will mark the end of an exciting journey of 8 social business startups from Europe, India and South Africa addressing some of the most pressing challenges of our time in the fields of transport & logistics. Together with more than 100 mentors from MAN and other well-known players in the innovation space such as Amazon, Uber, Google etc., they've worked very hard on scaling their social impact even more by diving deeper into topics like purpose, customer centricity, product and organizational growth. A mentoring journey across four contintens via Wolfsburg, Bangalore, Cape Town and San Francisco brings them now back to where their journey originally started in early November 2018: the MAN Headquarters in Munich. Get inspired, learn about the startups' achievements throughout the program, connect with mentors and experience the symbiotic relationship betwenn social & corporate innovation!
