December 1st marked the official end of the acceleration with the digital graduation event.
At the heart of the event were the project teams who shared their acceleration experience with the 60 participants. Furthermore, a number of speakers provided information about the future of B4IG, and advice for connecting with impact investors. A clear highlight were the inspirational words of Jean-Paul Agon, CEO of L’Oréal, whose speech you can watch below.
Overall, the event provided a platform for a final exchange of insights, tips, and ideas before sending the project teams on their way.
We thank everyone who contributed to making this first acceleration a success and we take one key learning shared by Jean-Paul Agon: “Collaboration is the new competition!,” especially within this extremely challenging situation.
