Projects that shape our future
In 2016, UBS set out to identify and support high-potential social enterprises that deliver scalable and innovative solutions to some of society’s most pressing challenges. After a careful selection process, we invited 12 UBS Social Innovators to join a year-long accelerator program to help them develop their businesses and achieve greater social or environmental impact.
