Kickstart Weekly Digest #4

Weekly Digests are shared during the 10-week Kickstart program to keep our community up to date on exciting news, announcements, and updates from Kickstart, our partners, and our startups and alumni. View in browser here.

Happy Friday, Kickstart Family!

This week, we are excited to share news and updates from our Kickstart cohort and alumni, including the launch of #Kickstarter22 finmarie's first book - the finmarie Financial Guide for Women, a partnership announcement between #Kickstarter20 Omocom with Evollis, as well as #Kickstarter19 Vianova's expansion to the Netherlands. We also sat down with Morane Rey-Huet, CEO & Founder of #Kickstarter22 meersens, for an inspirational interview discussing the challenges of founding a startup, how he met his co-founder, the inspiration and drive behind meersens, and more. You can find the full interview at the end of the digest.

In addition, Impact Hub launched its 2021-2022 Report, “Inclusive and sustainable innovation - at scale” highlighting how impact makers around the globe are using entrepreneurial action toward a just and sustainable society. Download it here.
