In partnership with One Young World, AB InBev and its flagship open innovation platform, the 100+ Accelerator, want to continue to support and promote women in business as women’s economic empowerment is crucial to realizing women’s rights, gender equality and driving sustainability.
AB InBev and 100+ Accelerator are proud to support the Lead2030 Challenge for SDG 5. The Challenge aims to find and support women-founded companies that are tackling the most pressing sustainability challenges we face: from climate change to biodiversity loss, to building a more inclusive world.
The winning solution will join the fifth cohort of organisations supported by the 100+ Accelerator. Participation in the program includes:
Pilot:The 100+ Accelerator gives promising startups an opportunity to pilot their innovation within a global corporate supply chain (AB InBev, The Coca Cola Company, Colgate- Palmolive, or Unilever) and bring their solutions to market faster.
Investment: To that end, the 100+ Accelerator provides up to $100,000 USD to each startup for a proof of concept pilot to prove the viability of the solution.
Ongoing mentorship: The 100+ Accelerator also provides critical hands-on support to startups through a robust curriculum of business skills and by assigning dedicated teams of the corporate partner´s mentors and experts to guide them through the pilot process.
One Young World Summit: In addition, one representative of the winning solution will be invited to participate in the One Young World Summit 2023 which takes place in Belfast from 2 – 5 October.
