About us

The Social Good Accelerator

SOGA EU (as we say) is a European association was created between Paris, Lisbon and Brussels. It was initially born as a collective initiative created at the Web Summit 2017, gathering French and Portuguese Social entrepreneurs, associations and Philanthropy networks along with the support of former French President François Hollande and his Foundation “La France s’engage”. 

Our ambition is to contribute to the change of scale of social innovation in Europe, thanks to technological tools and skills at the service of the Common Good. Our mission is to create bridges and conditions for cooperation between social innovation and technology players in Europe.

Connecting, informing and pleading with decision-makers are our 3 main areas of action.
To do this, we rely on a growing community of European networks and actors from both worlds.

Our Goal : create a bridge between

  • Actors of social innovation: accelerating social innovation through digital transition

  • Tech actors: establish links with societal issues and distill social innovation in any technological innovation project

…in the European Union

 

 

Social Good Accelerator, a French initiative of European interest, presents the “Social Innovation Village” at Web Summit 2018: a 90-person delegation with an exhibition of 24 social innovation projects and various inspiring events, to pledge for “More Social Good in Tech, More Tech in Social Good”.
