Do startups have time and money to worry about ESG?

As a startup, you’re immersed in the effort of scaling your business. At the same time, you have probably realised that investors are increasingly scrutinizing your ESG framework – or lack thereof – as a means of gauging your startup’s long-term viability.

Our panel seeks to give you the insights you need, to make informed decisions about whether ESG is a “must have” or “nice to have” for your startup.

You will discover the benefits of embracing ESG for startups, from attracting investors to building trust with stakeholders, boosting employee retention, and improving your brand image. You will get to know real-life examples and receive practical advice as to setting realistic targets, measuring progress, and assigning responsibilities within the organisation.

The upcoming discussion will be moderated by our managing partner Eva Berlaus and the speakers will be Luize Mantina, Compliance and Risk Manager of Printful; Urtė Karklienė, Sustainability manager of and Sille Pettai, Fund Manager at SmartCap, the Estonian state VC company managing an early-stage fund of funds.

On sTARTUp day 2024, our team members will also host seminar on strategic IP management and fundraising model and offer free legal counselling for startups as part of the Legal Clinic x sTARTUp Day 2024 programme.
