Impact Trophy

The Impact Trophy organized by Impact Valley brings together Corporate Companies wishing to improve their environmental impact and social innovators active in the ecological transition. Together, they design and build disruptive and sustainable solutions to address a common environmental issue.

Companies and social innovators share their interests, needs and willingness to work on a particular environmental challenge

A matching is made to connect corporate companies with the most relevant social organisations and mixed working teams are formed

During 3 days, all teams are competing to develop an innovative solution able to create the biggest environmental impact

The winner gets support to implement the project and make it visible to the world

A common challenge: Sustainability!

Co-organized with Hu-Bu and Be Planet, this unique hackathon will gather 8 private companies willing to improve their environmental impact and 8 social innovators (NGOs, nonprofit organisations, cooperatives, citizen movements, social startups,..) active in the environmental transition.

Together, they will design and build innovative projects in order to address common issues such as energy saving, waste management, sustainable mobility, recycling, nature conservation, etc.
