Fast Forward 2030 is a network and platform of entrepreneurs who believe that in order to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs), entrepreneurs need to incorporate them into their business models. We're organising an event series to promote this new approach to business, showing that with the right approach, entrepreneurs can build businesses that are vehicles towards a sustainable world.

 

This Event

Every other month, we bring together entrepreneurs – both aspiring and established, investors, sustainability professionals, students and academics to consider the role entrepreneurs can play in meeting different elements of the SDGs.

This summer, we explore SDG 5, which is to "achieve gender equality and empower all women and girls".

Your ticket includes:

  1. A great talk and Q&A session from our guest speakers

  2. Free ethically sourced drinks and snacks

  3. Networking and chatting with speakers, and the board members of Fast Forward 2030

 

Why the U.N. Sustainable Development Goals?

There are 17 SDGs with 169 targets - but don’t let this put you off. They are the first comprehensive plan for the whole of humanity to flourish within the means of the planet. This makes them a good framework for people who want to have an impact. They also set a direct challenge to the private sector by insisting that the environmental and social impact of the way we do business can no longer be an afterthought, or an add-on. They need to be at the very heart of how, and why our economies and businesses function. Fast Forward 2030 exists to encourage and inspire businesses that embody this.
