FUSION Launches Global Social Entrepreneurship Accelerator
FUSION is launching a Global Social Entrepreneurship right in the heart of Geneva.
“Geneva’s international pedigree and recognized hub for NGOs made it a perfect fit to foster social entrepreneurial startups combining the key components of an accelerator with the social impact objectives.” Says Sal Matteis – CEO at FUSION
Entrepreneurship is at the core of positive change. Over the past 100 years we have seen an incredible improvement in quality of life and society thanks to innovation and the power of technology.
We expect to see a remarkable and positive change occur over the next 10 years that will reshape positively life in many countries and under-served segments of society.
NGOs and current international bodies do as much as they can to support missions to improve life conditions but often fall short of expectations as their legacy systems and infrastructure were not built for the world we live in today.
At FUSION we believe it is time to reshape the model and leverage the power of technology to make positive impact by supercharging social entrepreneurs.
