The Impact StartUp accelerator has set up a network for investors, philanthropists and other funders of social impact, called InvestorLab.
The objective of the initiative is to help ensure early-stage companies have access to capital so that they can scale their solutions and therefore their social impact more easily. InvestorLab is also intended to help investors and funders to develop their expertise and to provide them with tools and access to new, relevant companies.

InvestorLab is an integral part of the Impact StartUp accelerator program. What this means is that companies on the program are trained in how to meet with and present themselves to investors, non-profit funds and foundations. In June every year the companies are given the chance to pitch their solutions in one-on-one meetings with investors.
Impact StartUp in Norway is also collaborating with the other Nordic countries’ Impact StartUp organisations on a shared pan-Nordic investor network. At the same time, each country will adapt its activities to its local requirements.
The initiative has received financial support from Nordic Innovation.
