Our guest today doesn’t think so. He believes that designing innovative partnerships can accelerate the development of sustainable businesses. He brings together impact investors, startups, and corporations together to find solutions to global problems.
Nadim Choucair is Founder of 2030 Cabinet, an impact-oriented ecosystem builder and partnership architect. His goal: to enable sustainable innovation using the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Nadim also coordinates the UN Global Goals Jam in Germany. The Jam is a two-day design sprint held in over 90 cities around the world. During the event, a multidisciplinary team works out solutions for real world problems currently faced by startups and businesses. Challenges range from helping companies reduce food waste to understanding the interrelation between mental health and climate change.
For those of you who are not familiar with the SDGs, they are basically a collection of 17 global goals designed to achieve a more sustainable future for all. The UN set them in 2015 with a 2030 deadline.
In today’s episode, we go all in on sustainability and business. We touch on a couple of themes, such as:
You might ask yourself how do I and my business fit into the SDGs? There are many different ways to answer that question, but you may want to have a clear True North first
If you want to build a meaningful tech startup that will make a positive impact, that’s the right episode for you.
Enjoy the show!
We are moving away from the Anthropocene, from the looking at what humans' specific needs are, but also looking at designing in a more holistic manner which is about preserving or improving life on this planet for humans and others, while definitely understanding the ecosystem that we live within. And again, here I think that the SDGs are an interesting framework. Nadim Choucair Tweet
