Don't know where to start?

"The Impact Shakers Angel Programme provided me with such a thorough, organized, and energizing training; I struggled to find the information clearly presented anywhere else. More important than the information itself, the way the Impact Shakers team goes about delivering the training has integrity with everything else they do. They care to share. They're here to help. Their motivation to see more diverse founders with system-changing ideas receive the funding and support they need is powerful. Thanks to the training, I found the clarity of mind and the energy to act on 2 investments I would otherwise have not known what to do with. & To feel belonging within the community Impact Shakers is building gives me the assurance I'm just getting started."

Thanks for submitting!


  • Who should apply?
    Any early or growth stage for-profit company, registered in the continent Europe (including the UK), that has social and/or ecological impact with at least one underrepresented founders. We are raising a pre-seed/seed impact investment fund that we hope to have live by January 2023, so ideally companies that would be ready for an investment round by then. We aim to invest in companies coming from our impact ecosystem.
  • Do I have to have a legal entity?
    Preferably yes, but it could also be registered by the starting date of the accelerator, June 1st 2022.
  • What is the cost to participate?
    There is no cost to participate in the programme. We do ask for some advisory equity in return.
  • Do you take equity?
    We work according a slicing pie principle. If one of us wins, we all win. In the accelerator, we take some advisory equity in exchange for the offered support. We ask for 2% and we will offer you 0,2% in Impact Shakers BV, the legal entity behind the accelerator.
  • ​​How many companies will you accept?
    We will accept 8 companies in this cohort.
  • What if I'm building a non-profit?
    In this programme, we're focusing on businesses that have or will take a for-profit legal form. If yours is non-profit, please drop us a line, we're looking to do a cohort with non-profits and will keep you posted!
  • How much will you invest?
    We will invest 25.000 euros via our microfund in a SAFE type convertible loan. The microfund is a separate legal entity, CV Impact Shakers Coop and is currently being raised with the crowd.
  • How do you select participants? Are there any selection criteria?
    We added four main pillars we’ll select on: Founder team, Problem & Market, Impact & User focus. The businesses we'll select for this accelerator should have a scaleable business model.
  • When and how will we participate? How is the programme structured?
    We don’t make you waste time you don’t have. We focus on setting up a personal development plan and set milestones which we’ll track in progress coaching. We’ll offer workshops and content but none will be mandatory. If there’s any subject you need support with, we’ll look into it and organise a session if needed.
  • When will I hear back?
    If you pass to the next round, we will get in touch with you for an interview. If you submit early, this could be before the closing of applications. We want to get to know you better before we agree to work together for a pretty long time. Don’t hesitate to submit early :) We will notify all applicants before the start of the accelerator.
  • Can I change my application after submission?
    If you believe the new information is crucial, feel free to email us at
  • Which HQ countries can participate?
    All countries on the continent Europe (including the UK).
  • This page will be regularly updated.
    Keep an eye on it. Any other questions you need answered before applying, email us at
