circle 17 Matchmaking

The marketplace for good business. Connect and match with social innovators and NGO's to build partnerships for all. 


After successful workshops and the  Impacthon the journey continues in supporting young businesses to establish long-term partnerships that contribute to the achievement of the SDGs.

We are convinced, for the challenges of today, the solutions are already out there. You just need to find them. That is why the Matchmaking unites key players that want to co-create a better future and provides plenty of opportunities to network and meet like-minded people that want to collaborate with promising startups.  

2022 the Fundraising Verband and circle17 merged the Matchmaking Event with the "Marktplatz der guten Geschäfte"-Event.
