About the Program

Starting with 40 startups on the fourth edition of the C3 Impact Accelerator – powered by HSBC, 20 finalists have completed their learning journey in addition to taking part in Board Meeting Simulations and several judging rounds.
The selected startups were trained on maximising their impact on society and the environment, achieve financial sustainability and, ultimately, solve major social challenges at scale.
As part of the Demo Day and Closing Ceremony, the top 8 finalists competed for the prize, and 4 winners were selected by a panel of judges: BlindLook came in first place, with Homeport Water Solutions in second, iSchool in third and Manhat in fourth place.
