Our mission is to support social initiatives that are creating a positive impact in society and for the planet by offering our expertise in building and scaling ventures.
This program is an employee-led initiative that started in 2019 with a mission to use the methodology, network, and talent at BCGDV to make a positive social and environmental impact. We do this by leveraging the skills we already have – company building and startup acceleration – and bringing those skills to established ventures that otherwise we might not have the opportunity to work with.
We can come in to help develop your product, scale, gain traction or simply just accelerate your capabilities. You can think of us as a sparring partner who will support whatever area you need help with most.
If you’re not sure where and how you want our support, that’s okay as well! As long as you have a clear idea of where your initiative is heading and have defined a clear problem or opportunity in the space, we can figure out the best way to utilize our skills to support you.
Every year we invite ventures to apply based on the current topic area chosen for the Social Ventures program. From the pool of applications, we find the ventures that are the best fit for the kind of work we do, and who we are best able to support and work with those shortlisted ventures to see what kind of impact we could have.
The five initiatives which are the most promising for the program will be invited to pitch their initiatives (with our support in developing the pitch) to the entire DV Berlin office. The top 1-2 ventures (depending on capacity and support required) will then work with us during the year just as we would with any venture we work with.
