i2 SustainIT stands for “Impact Incubator Nurturing Sustainability”. It is a project co-funded by the Erasmus+ Programme of the European Union to support the impact and sustainability ecosystem by upskilling mentors and investors to better support social entrepreneurs on a higher-scale of impact and with a more sustainable approach.
i2 SustainIT promotes Sustainability through the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals (UN SDGs). Fostering social entrepreneurship and its impact is crucial for tackling social, economic and environmental issues at all levels.
- Create a set of innovative educational tools for mentors and investors to enhance their skills and know-how to better support social entrepreneurs in their impact journeys in the incubation phase.
- Establish an immersive digital incubator platform, with an open access of the knowledge base of the developed tools for impact investors and mentors, while connecting them with the social entrepreneurs and their early stage projects.
The project is strongly focused on impact and sustainability and provides direct positive impact through the upskilling of mentors and investors who will nurture social entrepreneurs and the sustainable development of their projects.
All the resources created during the project duration will contribute to economic growth, reducing the negative impact on the environment and will foster the development of people, communities and cultures to achieve reasonable quality of life, healthcare and education across the globe.
The outcome of the i2 SustainIT project would be a set of tools and resources embracing the impact investment and sustainability ecosystem which will support mentors in the design thinking approach and investors to responsibly invest in social entrepreneurs for maximising social impact.
