Impact Grid (IG) was originally established in 2012 with the name of Net Impact Berlin, as the Berlin chapter of global organization Net Impact; and connected academicians, students and practitioners that work for mainstreaming universal principles on sustainability and corporate social responsibility. As a response to the increasing importance of (social) entrepreneurship and (social) innovation and growing impact of entrepreneurs and innovators in bringing about positive change, the organization has evolved its focus over the years. Today, it concentrates on raising communities’ awareness on global challenges humanity is facing today and generating behavioural change for a sustainable future. It focuses on implementing educational projects with international partners and engaging diverse stakeholder groups in the realization of globally set priorities such as sustainable development goals.
Since 2019, the organization continues its activities under the name of Impact Grid e.V. and participates in educational activities with a focus on sustainability and sustainable development. The subjects covered in IG’s activities and projects include impact entrepreneurship, social innovation, responsible management, CSR, environmental sustainability, and digital responsibility. Through its projects, IG supports youth workers, entrepreneurs, innovators, sart-ups and SMEs in their sustainability transformation. IG regards innovation as a crucial component of companies’ sustainable development strategies and advises them on innovative processes to develop products, services or models that are:
- sustainable for the company and environment, and;
- valuable for society.
IG tries to support “META IDEAS”, that present ways of supporting the production and transmission of other working ideas with a positive impact. IG seeks to connect the best entrepreneurs and innovators globally and empower them to change the world for the better.
