The Hague’s impact ecosystem landscape 2023

August 2023
ImpactCity proudly presents the 2023 version of the Landscape of impact companies from The Hague, compiled from the Dealroom Impact & Innovation database.

The Hague is the city for entrepreneurs who want to build a better world. As ImpactCity, The Hague offers a wide range of opportunities and services to entrepreneurs and other impact makers with innovative solutions. The local and at the same time unique international network of The Hague connects NGOs, research centers, knowledge institutes, investorrs, established companies, governments and many young and creative entrepreneurs who want to make a difference, resulting in a lively and leading impact ecosystem.

In The Hague, there is a growing number of impact entrepreneurs who combine ‘doing good & doing business’. The Landscape of impact companies from The Hague shows them all. It has been derived from the Dealroom Impact & Innovation database.

ImpactCity created the Dealroom Impact & Innovation database together with Dealroom, Danske Bank and Tech Nation in 2020. It gathers information on almost 15.000 “impact startups”, defined as companies that address one or more UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDGs) at the core of their business and have the potential to scale. The database makes impact startups and scale-ups visible for impact investors, corporates and knowledge institutes.

ImpactCity and Dealroom founded the impact database to monitor the development of the worldwide impact ecosystem. They recently have renewed their partnership.

“We believe it is important to measure the development of our impact ecosystem. Having impact data in front of us makes it easy to measure our progress toward the SDGs, and it shows us where we need to channel our efforts, and where there are opportunities to grow. That is why we greatly value the partnership with Dealroom”

Coos Santing, program manager ImpactCity

“ImpactCity The Hague is one of the frontrunners in setting up an impact ecosystem. They have been at the forefront of the impact startup database which is now containing almost 15.000 impact startups. The renewal of our partnership gives us the opportunity to further develop the database.”

Yoram Wijngaarde, founder Dealroom
