Open Solutions Global MD and Founder and Startup Grind Chapter Director, Patrycja Maksymowicz joins UNDP BOOST to provide mentorship on its  Boost: Women Innovators.  BOOST is a program that accelerates social impact for entrepreneurs in Europe and Central Asia.

Aiming to reimagine the future and nurture a community of innovators, the program strives to harness innovation for development. BOOST innovators are bringing change to millions of people-from improving air quality and forecasting floods, creating e-learning classes for children and upskilling platforms for women.


BOOST is part of UNDP's Strategic Plan 2022-25, which aims to help governments and communities rebuild after COVID-19. In collaboration with their growing network of changemakers and partners in the region, they are addressing structural transformation and building resilience that ensures no one is left behind. This is achieved by promoting innovative ideas that embrace digitalization, as well as mobilizing funds for achieving the 2030 Agenda for Sustainable Development.



The programme fundamentals: 

  • Sustainable Development
  • Innovation for Transformation 
  • Systemic Lens
  • Powering Partnerships 
  • Inclusive Technology


As one of the Knowledge Partners, Startup Grind contributes its expertise to the programme.
