RESPOND is the first accelerator program that promotes both responsible leadership and sustainable business models in line with the UN 2030 Agenda.
It is a BMW Foundation accelerator program, operated by UnternehmerTUM that is led out of Munich, Germany.
At RESPOND, we work with entrepreneurs across the globe to accelerate sustainable business models, drive innovation, and empower responsible leadership: During the accelerator program participants will work with high-class coaches to develop their businesses, with a focus on sustainability and responsible leadership. Mentors will challenge, advise, and guide participants on critical business and leadership decisions. Entrepreneurs will become part of a diverse global network of founders, investors, corporations, and thought leaders, and their startups will be promoted through international conferences and media coverage.
During the 5-month program, participants will attend four sprints and a responsible leadership workshop, of four to five days each, in and around Munich, Germany. At the end of the program, participants will have the opportunity to pitch to an international group of 250+ investors, industry representatives, and the press at the RESPOND Demo Night.
