Tickets are LIVE – MIA #2 Closing Ceremony

May 28, 2019

The MAN Impact Accelerator #2 isn’t quite over yet and now is your chance to celebrate the journey and the closing of another successful batch.

Back in September, we received hundreds of applications from all over the world and we identified 8 promising social entrepreneurs in the mobility and logistics space. Since, we welcomed them in Munich to kick off the accelerator journey, travelled to 4 continents and 8 months later, we return to Munich for the final highlight of the year…

Whether you are an intrapreneur, startup entrepreneur, industry expert, investor, social business enthusiast or journalist, save the date in your calendars and join us for the 2nd MIA Closing Ceremony.

  • When: Tuesday June, 25th @4pm -7.30pm
  • Where: MAN Truck Forum, Dachauer Straße 570, Auditorium, Munich
  • Registration: Participation is free, but a registration is necessary! Limited capacity - RSVP on Eventbrite

The purpose of this evening is to make new connections, hear innovative social business ideas from budding entrepreneurs in the mobility and logistics space, experience the symbiotic relationship between social and corporate innovation and bring together all those who wish to play a part in making the world a better place!

Events like these are also part of what inspires and supports the intrapreneurial culture that is rapidly disrupting the industry. This will be a unique opportunity for us to showcase the social entrepreneurial drive of large corporations such as MAN Truck and Bus and their ability to use their talent and expertise to solve problems across a wide range of markets.
