Enrique Alvarado Hablutzel
Co-founder of CHI Impact
Enrique also worked as Strategy and Business Development Manager at Impact Hub Geneva and Lausanne. His primary focus was the financial development of Accelerate2030 – a multi-stakeholder program co-initiated by Impact Hub Geneva and UNDP in 2016, aiming to identify ventures with tested and scale-ready solutions in line with the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). Today, Accelerate2030 is implemented in 20+ developing and emerging economies, including Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Eastern Europe.
