An ecosystem full of sustainable solutions.
Innovation is a major accelerator for organisations transitioning to the circular economy. The world of start-ups is a rich source for innovation, it is where you find (tech)driven entrepreneurs with great ideas who want to improve the world. Now, how do you connect start-ups with corporates and governments? That can still be a challenge at times. We have identified more than 400 start-ups and scale-ups that contribute to one or more goals of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). The model is open source, never finished and growing daily. The ecosystem is our way to boost sustainable innovations in the Netherlands and connect corporations and governments to start-ups. #Acceleratetogether
with promising innovations.
The SDG ecosystem
Connecting the right parties
Corporations and governments are keen to work with start-ups and scale-ups because of their innovative power and agility. However, in reality this is often challenging due to different (financial) interests, risks, ongoing contracts and slow decision-making. A shame considering the sustainable potential. Through the SDG ecosystem initiative, we would like to shine a light on the wonderful solutions of sustainable start-ups and scale-ups for our customers and work towards establishing real pilots and projects.
PHI Factory gets to know the companies in the SDG ecosystem better every day. We carry out targeted searches and link them to organisations or add them to circular coalitions we implement for clients. This way, we maximise access to each other's expertise and innovative strength, to ensure that promising innovations are actually realised.
Subsequently, PHI Factory can supervise and coordinate the collaboration and assist to establish the coalition and cooperation. In addition, PHI Factory can start pilots at different levels and use the Impact Calculator to measure their impact on organisations to determine their success and eventually scale them up. Also, the SDG ecosystem can advise organisation on sustainable procurement, possibly directed to specific SDGs. These activities enable us to realise start-ups and scale-ups’ cool solutions.
