All their members work towards enabling tangible positive impact in six impact areas, guided by the Sustainable Development Goals. Together with their partners, Impact Hub aims to strengthen entrepreneurial ecosystems around the world, inspire collaboration around key issues between unlikely allies, and support impact-driven entrepreneurs on their journey from idea to impact at scale.
De Brauw, especially our younger lawyers, provide legal advice with respect to several of Impact Hub Amsterdam’s programs. One of them is the Investment Ready Program, a unique 4-month peer-learning program that consists of 12 program days leading up to an investor forum, supported by mentors, speakers, content experts, associates and powerful business tools. De Brauw is partner of The Investment Ready Program and provides legal expertise. Simone Kooij: “As partner of the Investment Ready Program, our lawyers are passionate about brainstorming and advising on a wide range of legal issues, helping the ventures to find their way in the complex legal world. Creating the best solution for each start-up in an entrepreneurial setting and with an idealistic goal does not only inspire but also motivate our lawyers to give their best.”
