Let's Talk: Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs)
In September 2015, all 193 Member States of the United Nations agreed on a plan for achieving a better future for the world — mapping out the way for the next years to end extreme poverty, fight inequality and injustice, and protect our planet. The 17 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) are the core of the Agenda 2030 and define the world we want to live in. The Goals rise from an inclusive process whose accomplishment will take the effort by all sectors in society – especially the contribution of businesses will be key to their achievement.
That is why Wirtschaftsagentur Wien and WeDO5 teamed up to host the Kick-off Breakfast for the upcoming Techstars Startup Weekend Online. This edition is dedicated to the topic of SDGs and on creating business models with impact.
Get inspired by a keynote speech delivered by Selma Prodanovic, investor and founder of Brainswork & 1MillionStartups, meet new people and learn more about the targets and indicators behind each goal.
