Euregio Event Impact Entrepreneurship

We would like to invite you to our expert event – Impact Entrepreneurship: How can the public sector stimulate the new normal? on September 16 in Arnhem.


Impact entrepreneurs help the public sector solve social issues. Companies driven by impact work on issues such as an inclusive labour market, greening cities, circular initiatives or loneliness amongst elderly citizens – tasks traditionally carried out by municipalities.

Increase impact through collaboration

Because of this shared interest in social issues the public sector and impact company profit greatly from collaborating. The public sector can help impact companies scale up, professionalize or strengthening their ecosystem. Being a launching customer,  hosting accelerator programs or redefining public procurement – there are many options.

Inspiring best practices

In this free event hosted by KplusV in collaboration with the Impact Factory we shine the light on best practice from Germany and the Netherlands. We engage decisionmakers from municipalities and other public institutions on how we can best learn from each other across the border in interactive sessions.


Date: Friday, 16 September 2022

Start: 13.00 o'clock

End: ca. 18.00 o'clock


A beautiful mess, Zijpendaalseweg 24A in Arnhem

We will provide coffee and tea throughout the afternoon and close the day with bites and drinks.
