MAZE X is a 3-month accelerator program, based in Lisbon, Portugal, designed to put ambitious impact ventures on the road to becoming an impact unicorn. The program focuses on equipping ventures with the capital, skills and network they need to attract investment, scale their ideas and maximize their impact. We are on the hunt for 10 early-stage impact ventures focused on solving social and environmental challenges with the potential of generating attractive financial returns.

MAZE X was conceived and initiated by the Calouste Gulbenkian Foundation, the Edmond de Rothschild Foundations and MAZE, with PLMJ joining as a corporate founding member. Through MAZE X and the MSM VC impact fund, MAZE invests in effective solutions that solve social and environmental challenges. MAZE is always on the hunt for hard-working entrepreneurs who have the grit and perseverance to test new ideas and take risks to achieve innovative outcomes.
