Start your journey to validate your sustainable business model


Have you ever thought about growing your startup thanks to a high social impact model?


Have you ever felt like you were wasting too much time behind the theory without ever getting results in the market?

Are you interested in understanding practically how to develop a sustainable business?

If one of these questions reflects your situation or your needs, the e4g startup program that we have created and applied to other businesses like yours, It’s the right solution for you!

To ensure a better future for our society and our environment, the world needs more sustainable businesses. Still, too many startups and enterprises lack the relevant skills and method to turn notions into practical and measurable actions.

Why is it so important

for your startup to adopt a sustainable approach to grow faster in the market?
In the process of development and validation of an idea or a business in its first steps in the market, one of the essential elements that can make the difference between obtaining or not useful results and growth is the ability of the business to involve the right people in a short time.

To create a strong position in the minds of your stakeholders, you need to demonstrate the impact that your business has or can have on the ecosystem in which you operate. And not just your end customers.

The trust and virality that is unleashed through valuable sharing is in itself a measurable growth metric for your startup.

Metrics that, over time, can help you grow your business exponentially by reducing the impact of the costs of finding and retaining customers as well.

Beyond that, taking this kind of approach can allow you to gain a greater strategic competitive advantage by building and strengthening relationships with partners and suppliers who share your same values.

“A label alone is not a metric for business growth. You need a strategy and a model that generates measurable benefits for your stakeholders in order to consider those benefits as growth metrics. And that’s what we do with passion!”
