Social impact


As the lead innovation partner of UNLEASH, we were responsible for the design and delivery of a five-day SDG Innovation Lab spanning seven tracks targeting each of the SDGs, including education, health and sustainable production and consumption. More than 50 Deloitte professionals guided the participants on each track through the innovation phases of problem framing, ideation, prototyping and testing before each team pitched their solutions to investors and other stakeholders. Through this, we helped them create 150 innovative solutions.

These solutions are now seeking support from investors, experts, mentors, and more than 200 UNLEASH partner organisations globally.

16 Deloitte professionals attended UNLEASH as practitioners - singled out from more than 8,000 applicants to be part of the event.

”Singapore UNLEASH was a life changing experience for me. One of my teams made it through the dragon’s den! It was so wonderful to connect with like-minded people on a global scale! It was mind-blowing and thanks for the opportunity for me to make an impact that matters.”

Facilitator, UNLEASH


UNLEASH is a recurring event every year until 2030. This year, we will gather 1,000 young people in Shenzhen in China, where we will once again facilitate the Global SDG Innovation

Lab. The best solutions will be awarded and provided with funding or professional services to help make them a reality.

Our support for UNLEASH embodies our WorldClass initiative, which aims at using our skills, experience and global reach to empower 50 million people through education, skills development and access to opportunity.
