The Investment Ready Program 'Encouraging Future Generations' by Allianz and Impact Hub is a unique acceleration program, tailored for purpose driven entrepreneurs and aiming to foster social inclusion of children and youth. Originally designed by Impact Hub Vienna, the Investment Ready Program was redesigned in alignment with the focus of Allianz' sustainability strategy - only social ventures promoting social inclusion and youth development are eligible for participation.
The program helps participants to scale their purpose-driven solutions and to attract investors in order to increase the impact of their social ventures. Over a duration of 6 months, up to 10 participating teams engage in a systematic review of their business model, strategy and team before crafting a validated growth and investment plan. At the end of the program, all participants have the chance to pitch in front of a jury for the Allianz Future Generations Award, which comes with a 40,000€ grant.
