In partnership with Regenerative Investment, BOMA Investments and Fundo Bem Comum FCR, WeChangers is the first startup to receive investment from the Social Innovation Fund, in a round that will allow WeChangers to raise up to 1 million euros.
WeChangers is a global startup whose mission is to empower individuals, communities and organizations, working on solutions to create a better world.
In order to map and connect the entire impact ecosystem, it has developed an open, global and collaborative platform that brings together updated projects and data on world changers – social organizations, foundations, impact investors and corporations – providing them with tools that promote learning, networking and new opportunities for collaboration among all.
Through the platform you can search what you are looking for, filtering organizations by area, location or SDGs, connecting with other organizations, events, projects and potential co-investors.
