Cardashift Appoints Guillaume Capelle as Ambassador
Cardashift’s team is thrilled to announce the appointment of Guillaume Capelle as Ambassador of Cardashift.
Guillaume is the founder of SINGA, the first European network of incubators for refugees and immigrants. SINGA’s mission is to support professional activities created by or for refugees to promote their social inclusion and reveal their potential.
The community is now made up of nearly 50,000 people (employees, mentors, entrepreneurs, beta-testers) dispatched in 7 countries. Singa has helped develop over 1,000 startups. Among them, we can quote Carbon Mobile in Germany, Kaoukab or Frello in France.
SINGA is also recognized for its involvement in Tech for Good with the development of a platform to facilitate the accommodation of refugee families. The project has been supported by Microsoft, Facebook and Share-it.
Guillaume’s expertise on social entrepreneurship and migration are then internationally recognized. In 2022, he is one of the 150 leaders of the Business for Climate Convention.
The next challenge for him is the launch of Singa Ventures, with the ambition to fund and boost startups powered by migration, across Europe and North America.
“I want to explore new ways to combine impact and value creation. I’m also frustrated that great entrepreneurs who are refugees and immigrants to Europe are not getting investment. We will try, with Cardashift, to build new paths for social and environmental innovation.”
The Cardashift team is looking forward to working with Guillaume. His extensive knowledge in social entrepreneurship and incubation programs will be invaluable. His expertise will be of great help to us at all stages of the launchpad — from the project assessment phase to the acceleration program.
We also aim with him to develop the bridge between the crypto ecosystem and the classic investment world to maximize the chances of successes for impact project leaders.
Cardashift is a community-run launchpad that raises funds, builds and accelerates startups that are solving social and environmental issues.
Cardashift is based on Cardano, the blockchain platform for change-makers, innovators, and visionaries.
