About ImpactFest

ImpactFest is the annual flagship event of ImpactCity The Hague, founded by the municipality of The Hague. “Doing good and doing business” is the core of what ImpactCity stands for.

The Hague is the city for entrepreneurs working on innovations for a better world. As ImpactCity, The Hague offers a wide range of opportunities and services to entrepreneurs and other impact makers with innovative solutions to help them start and scale their business and impact.

To effectively address global challenges, public and private partnerships are formed on themes such as energy, water, food, humanitarian innovation, and climate. The local and at the same time unique international network of The Hague connects NGOs, research centres, knowledge institutes, established companies, governments, and many innovative entrepreneurs who want to make a difference, resulting in a lively and leading impact ecosystem.

ImpactFest was created in 2016 to bring together this ecosystem of purpose-driven organisations from all corners of the world ImpactFest provides a platform to present yourself, pitch for investors, and exchange experiences to scale together.
Over the past years, ImpactFest has become a leading impact event in Europe and is seen as an international “must-attend” event in the impact world. Key changemakers come together to network and find collaborators to address global challenges.
