An Impact Map for Unlocking Hidden Opportunities in Switzerland

At a glance


The support ecosystem for social and impact entrepreneurs, encompassing coaching, infrastructure, training, and support, is in constant flux. A dearth of support networks frequently hinders young entrepreneurs from accessing appropriate assistance, leading to project failures.

Our research aims to create an interactive map for Swiss social entrepreneurs, spotlighting essential support providers in the impact ecosystem of ZHAW and Canton Zurich. Collaborating with ImpactHub Zurich, we will identify influential players promoting impact entrepreneurship using data-driven insights, developing a visually appealing representation of the Swiss social and impact entrepreneurship landscape. Our two-stage approach will gauge the needs of social entrepreneurs and support providers, identify pivotal players, and promote resource accessibility, equality, and social entrepreneurship. The map will guide social startups, bolstering social entrepreneurship at ZHAW and in Switzerland.
