About #impaktWISE

#impaktWISE is a project initiated by Copenhagen Business School (CBS), founded in the autumn of 2020. This project supports those who want to develop entrepreneurial solutions to social, environmental and economic challenges.

The aim of the project is to help students and early-stage entrepreneurs identify challenges, develop solutions, and provide support to those who are ready to put their ideas into action. We do this by creating a vibrant community, offering in-depth mentoring and provide exciting opportunities through social business model competitions.


If this sounds familiar, you might have known us from our first season as “#covidWISE”. We still have the same foundational principles, but our new identity represents our new mission which has grown to include a more diverse set of ideas, projects and entrepreneurs.

We empower people to gain the necessary skills to develop business ideas that will have a profound positive impact on communities all around the world
