Lightup Impact Badge Program

The organizations that earn the Impact Badge will have the chance to:

  • Be selected for the Founder Tour program.
  • Apply to take part in our social intrapreneurship & social impact campaigner trainings in collaboration with our business partners. This will allow our member organizations to initiate new types of partnerships with the business sector while getting access to seed funding.

The first round of the Lightup Impact Badge program was launched in September 2021. We have developed a yearly application process to review the credibility, the impact, the vision and the commitment of our member organizations to grow with the Lightup Impact network. The founders who successfully pass this selection, earn the Impact Badge and a certificate. The badge will allow the founders to more easily access seed funding and partnership opportunities provided through our own programs or it can be used independently from Lightup Impact activities to showcase the organization’s credibility with external partners. 2022 applications are now open, click the link to apply.
