+impact is a free-of-charge community platform where startups and investors meet to make an impact


Across the Nordics, impact entrepreneurs are solving big problems. We want to support this movement. Thus, +impact focusses on purpose driven startups based in Denmark, Finland, Norway, and Sweden, who are facing various challenges related to funding. We help startups on the funding journey and connect them with investors who want to help making an impact.

Globally recognised, we use UN’s Sustainable Development Goals as our shared standards for what we want to achieve together.

We care about the bottom line. Creating change - whether it’s social, environmental or multisided - is a commitment that requires a paycheck. Through +impact, we foster a culture where growing your business is a key enabler and supporting impactful, profit-making entrepreneurs a societal investment.

“Solving the environmental and societal problems calls for new thinking and new solutions. We believe that impact startups with their commitment, the competences and the stamina holds great potential to contribute to those solutions”

Maria Simonson,

Head of Societal Impact & Sustainability @ Danske Bank
