Edmond de Rothschild Foundations will be animating various discussions and activities along with their partners at the changeNOW Summit from January 30 to February 1, 2020. Rallying these actors around such an event is an example of how we are driving change through the sharing of best practices as well as acting as more than just a think-tank, but a ‘do-tank.’

Edmond de Rothschild Foundations will be animating various discussions and activities along with their partners at the changeNOW Summit from January 30 to February 1, 2020. Rallying these actors around such an event is an example of how we are driving change through the sharing of best practices as well as acting as more than just a think-tank, but a ‘do-tank.’

 

At Edmond de Rothschild Foundations, we use the term ‘Theory of Change’ to define our conviction that business must be a force for good but that ‘good’ must also be economically sustainable. Throughout the programs we cocreate, we realize this conviction through the amazing startups we help accelerate and incubate.

 

To illustrate how an ecosystem like this catalyzes real change and impact, we are rallying actors from across our ecosystem at the changeNOW Summit. Take, for example, RNTERS, one of the startups accelerated by our initiative Maze-X in Portugal with partner Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation. Rnters is all about activating a circular economy and reducing consumption with their sharing platform, allowing people to rent out their personal goods. Or Springkode, upending the fast fashion trend by helping to eliminate waste in the textile industry.

 

With a bit of creativity and the right support, the possibilities for ‘good’ resulting in economic success are endless. Our incubator SINGA Acceleration changes the narrative around migration and refugees while accelerating their business, and TEKHNÈ combines technological innovation with business and applies it to social good. Additionally, we harness relations between these programs and the Edmond de Rothschild Group with mentorship programs.

 

All of these people and programs will be at changeNOW Summit which takes place January 30 - February 1, 2020 at the Grand Palais in Paris. Find us at:

 

  • Roundtable Business with Values January 30 at the Arena from 12:30 pm to 1:45 pm
