A PROGRAM PROMOTING SOCIAL INNOVATION IN SPORT
We are convinced of sport’s unique platform – and central role – in driving impactful initiatives that can help solve the greatest social and environmental challenges of our time.
The GSW Social Booster is a programme delivered by Global Sports Week and powered by 17 Sport, that identifies, promotes and supports impact-led sports projects from around the world.
It is open to non-profits and social businesses that use sport to address specific objectives identified by the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Winners are selected based on the proven effectiveness and scalability potential of their projects.
They have the opportunity to pitch their project to prospective investors and key leaders of sports business and society during Global Sports Week. These projects then benefit from a 3-month acceleration program, providing strategic and structural support to their organisation and/or project.
