The coronavirus pandemic has shown once more the need for a rapid and sustainable transformation. Sustainability is not
the only answer to our global needs, but is crucial to rebuilding
our productive systems hit by COVID-19 and make them more
resilient, sustainable, and innovative.

At ecoSurge we believe in the advantage of placing UN SDGs
at businesses’ core through digital and business innovation,
and active cooperation (SDG 17). Only together we will be able
to respond to today's challenges due to a more uncertain and
vulnerable society.


 

Project (need to do spell check when finishing your sheets)

 

Restart Together aims to support the relaunch of businesses
by fostering idea generation, expertise sharing, and cooperation
in the light of UN SDGs.

It is a network of professionals, entrepreneurs, innovators
and researchers from different countries who want to sup-
port micro-enterprises and SMEs by sharing their expertise,
insights and experiences.

What?

Restart Together is a network of professionals, entrepreneurs, SMEs, innovation labs sharing expertise and insights, and fostering idea generation in the light of UN SDGs to support the relaunch of micro enterprises and SMEs. It is a kind of "marketplace of business ideas" for relaunching businesses.

 

How?

Restart Together is based on mutual interactions and contributions. It is currently a LinkedIn group. Upon joining the group participants describe briefly their current interests and desiderata from the network, and experiences/resources they are willing to share with the network.

 

Participants interested in specific topics can discuss ideas on cooperative funded projects and explore business cooperation.
