New project to discover!


Newsletter of June 2023

Dear Citizenfund supporter,

Summer is here, and it’s time to share the latest news and exciting events from Citizenfund with you! June was a month full of meetings, partnerships, and successes for our ecosystem. Here are the latest updates:


Citizenfund Events

🚀 We continue with our scale-up program at ASHOKA. This collaboration allows us to refine our vision and accelerate our impact.

🌍 We had the privilege of attending the Colloquium on Balancing Economic Development and Just Climate Transition! This event brought together experts such as Marek Hudon and Brussels State Secretary for Economic Transition, Barbara Trachte. We participated in engaging and inspiring discussions for a more sustainable future.

🗣️ We were invited as speakers at Close The Gap to present Citizenfund to a delegation from Morocco. It was an opportunity to share our vision, successes, and challenges, as well as our future projects, with an international audience. The impact of our community extends beyond borders!

🍽️ We had the opportunity to participate in a dinner with other B-Corp companies. The exchanges with these leaders were a true source of inspiration and sharing of experiences. Together, we strengthen the movement of business with a positive impact.

🔎 We organized a selection committee for potential new investments. Stay tuned, as we will soon introduce innovative projects that may join Citizenfund!

🎉 We were nominated for the Hub Awards in the Bloom category! While we didn’t win the prize, BC MATERIALS did. So, it’s a great achievement for us too 😉…
