What we do
Promote - Inspire - Educate - Invest
1MillionStartups is the first worldwide campaign and community dedicated to promoting the entrepreneurial spirit and the startup world while raising the awareness about the importance of startups in today‘s social & economic development, as well as inspiring new founders and business angels to create the startups we need. 1MillionStartups is focused on growing a community of 1 million members inspired to impact the world through their own action, through entrepreneurship – a movement based on solutions, moreover, solutions in contribution to Sustainable Development Goals by UN. In our over 25 years of experience & research, we identified the three most crucial issues for entrepreneurs to develop successfully: 1) access to role-models, 2) access to know-how, and 3) access to capital. With 1MilionStartups we tackle all three problems and provide global solutions. We strongly support the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). 1MillionStartups was selected and presented at the UN Communication Group Meeting in Vienna as best practice example how business can contribute to innovation and achieving the SDGs. We will invest €100million in our members by 2030.
