About Impact

First launched in Nepal in 2014, Rockstart Impact is collaboration between the Impact Investment fund One to Watch and Rockstart one of Europe’s top business accelerators. After three successful editions of Rockstart Impact and 3 million euros raised, we are thrilled to announce the launch of our program in Myanmar!

Once known as ‘Asia’s Rice Bowl’, Myanmar is reestablishing its place in the international economy after many years of isolation. With its enviable geographic location between China and India, an abundance of natural resources and a diverse, culturally rich population comprised of over 135 different ethnic groups, Myanmar holds a unique economic position.

The business environment is improving rapidly. The Myanmar people are ambitious and ready to unleash the full potential of the Burmese entrepreneurial spirit, ready to turn one problem after another into successful business cases.

Greater access to investors and experts will allow entrepreneurs to further expand their businesses and to have more impact on their local communities. At the same time, there is a growing number of investors searching for businesses that are both profitable and socially impactful. At Rockstart, we aspire to bride this gap by sourcing the most promising entrepreneurs in transition markets and connecting them to international and local investors, enabling businesses to grow and to take the lead in moving Myanmar forward.

Do you have viable and scalable business that needs an investment to scale up? Are you a visionary entrepreneur who is driven to make a social impact in Myanmar? Apply to Rockstart Impact, a 100-day accelerator program that makes your company investment ready and connects you to international growth capital!
