    • Early-stage start-up founders in the circular and impact space

    • Post-grad students with an impact idea backed by their research

    • Senior business professionals with a impact-driven concept

  • The IBMS methodology has been developed by Richard Georg Engström, who is an entrepreneur, investor, advisor and your future mentor. Richard created IBMS to help start-ups gain clarity and quantify the real impact their sustainable solutions can have. This in turn helps investors in their decision-making process and start-ups to get funded faster.

    • Impact business modelling online workshops (Impact Statement, Impact Plan, Circular business model, Impact Metrics)

    • Individual one-on-one sessions (to put the knowledge from workshops to work for your start-up/concept)

    • The main requirement is that you have a solid business idea within the circularity space. We are open to all maturity stages. You can apply as a solo founder or with a team.

  • This program is free for all selected start-ups/teams. The cost of it is covered by Neew Ventures.

  • The maximum intake for this program is 10 start-ups/teams. We decided to keep it deliberately small, so that all the teams can get as much personalised support as possible.

  • All the classes  as well as the kick-off on April 16th will take place online. The final presentation will be on site at the NEEW Ventures space at Berliner Str. 80-82 in Berlin. You’re always welcome to come by for collaboration, idea exchange and networking.

In collaboration with

Our First Cohort

Last year, we successfully launched our first Impact Program and  were able to help a total of  start-ups in the circularity space.

Over a period of 6 weeks the teams came together for input and coaching sessions to learn how to build their impact-driven business model.

To top it all off, there was a pitch event at the end where each team presented their impact business model in front of an enthusiastic crowd and rounded off the success with food, drinks and networking.

Circularity Hub Impact Program

If you have a business idea in the circularity space and struggle with building an impact-driven business model, this program is for you. We will help you make the impact of your start-up measurable, operational and profitable through Impact Business Modelling System methodology. 


How do we measure the impact of new sustainable solutions? How can we convince investors to fund sustainable solutions that can bring true breakthroughs and slow down the climate crisis?
