Startup Impact: SDG Pitch Competitions
The Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), also known as the Global Goals, were adopted by all United Nations Member States in 2015 as a universal call to action to end poverty, protect the planet and ensure that all people enjoy peace and prosperity by 2030.
Everyone is needed to reach these ambitious targets. The creativity, know-how, technology, and financial resources from Canadians is necessary to achieve the SDGs in every context. And where is there a better place to look than Canada’s entrepreneurial ecosystem?
Startup Impact: SDG Pitch Competitions aim to highlight and encourage Canadian entrepreneurs whose startups embrace sustainability and fulfill one of the following 4 SDG’s:
- SDG 1: Poverty Reduction
- SDG 5: Gender Equality
- SDG 8: Decent Work & Economic Growth
- SDG 13: Climate Action
