Our mission is to help innovators, entrepreneurs and change-makers create a better, sustainable and equitable future.
We believe that tomorrow belongs to those who build it, and who dare to tackle the world’s most important challenges.
With this program, we aim to accelerate the building of bold new initiatives, products, services, and businesses that are creating a positive impact in society and for the planet.
We do that by offering our expertise technological, entrepreneurial and sector expertise, working hands-on with you for a dedicated sprint – for free.
In the program, we work with early-stage start-ups and NGOs with a clear social impact; we bring together advanced tech knowledge and ambitious entrepreneurship to help you launch new product offerings, and accelerate your traction.
You can think of us as a versatile sparring partner who will support whatever area you need help with most: we are designers, engineers, data scientists, product managers, growth & marketing experts, and business consultants with a strong expertise in building new solutions to address the world’s most important challenges and opportunities.
As a pro-bono initiative, - we don’t take equity or any fee – the program is entirely free – that’s why we have a careful selection process that ends with a pitching session, where all BCG X employees in EMESA can vote to select the most relevant winner.
Every year we invite ventures to apply based on the current topic area chosen for the Social Impact Accelerator program. From the pool of applications, we find the ventures that are the best fit for the kind of work we do, and who we are best able to support and work with those shortlisted ventures to see what kind of impact we could have.
The seven initiatives which are the most promising for the program will be invited to pitch their initiatives (with our support in developing the pitch) to the entire BCG X EMESA staff. The top 2-3 initiatives (depending on capacity and support required) will then work with us during the year just as we would with any venture we work with.
BCG X is the tech build and design unit of BCG. Turbocharging BCG’s deep industry and functional expertise, BCG X brings together advanced tech knowledge and ambitious entrepreneurship to help organizations enable innovation at scale.
