We Make Change Joins Techstars Sustainability Paris Accelerator to Drive Global Impact

Accelerator programme will help scale platform enabling individuals and companies to create global change
 
LONDON - Sept. 19, 2023 - PRLog -- We Make Change, a leading impact platform connecting remote volunteers with impact startups, is thrilled to announce its selection for the prestigious Techstars Sustainability Paris Accelerator. This marks a significant milestone in We Make Change's journey to enabling anyone, anywhere to make change anytime.

We Make Change connects individual and corporate volunteers to impact entrepreneurs who need professional skills to supercharge their startups supporting the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. As the platform promotes remote, skills-based volunteering, people are able to support the causes they care about, wherever they are in the world.

Since launching their platform in 2020, We Make Change has built a global community of over 30,000 volunteers (known as ChangeMakers) who supercharge more than 1,000 impact startups across the world. Their Change Day online volunteering events have enabled hundreds of employees from companies like Kimberly-Clark, PA Consulting and CSG to support startups aligned with their companies' sustainability objectives.

To date, We Make Change has enabled volunteers to deliver over Ā£3 million worth of value to impact startups globally. Participation in the Techstars Sustainability Accelerator will significantly advance this mission, providing We Make Change with invaluable resources, mentorship, and access to a global network of experts.
