The objective of Snjallræði: Startup Social is to provide individuals, NGOs and companies with a platform to develop their ideas and find ways to make them sustainable. The ideas must have a clear and positive social impact and support one or more of the UN Sustainable Development Goals or SDGs. We are open to all ideas in all stages, from fresh thoughts to developed projects and businesses.
For the first time this year Snjallræði: Startup Social will host a sprint in collaboration with MIT designXduring the first week of the accelerator.
From 14 - 18 October the teams of Snjallræði: Startup Social will be introduced to the newest approaches in social innovation and entrepreneurship, have the opportunity to test their own ideas and ‘kill them’, and participate in intensive workshops built on the four steps of MIT designX, Understand – Solve – Envision – Scale.
Main sponsors of Snjallræði / Startup Social are Icelandair, Marel, Landsvirkjun, Deloitte and Össur.
