Access4you provides detailed and reliable information on the accessibility of the built environment for people with disabilities and homeowners. Startup company Social Impact, founded in 2019, has a unified signage system that can help target groups around the world navigate while effectively supporting companies' business and sustainability (ESG) goals. With an investment of 950,000 euros from Hiventures, Hungary's largest venture capital, the company is expanding its network of partners in international markets
BUDAPEST, Hungary, September 26, 2023 /PRNewswire/ -- According to the World Health Organization (WHO), 15% of the world's population (around 1.3 billion people) has a disability. To live an independent life, they must plan before entering and navigating unknown places.
"We believe that the first step in the (re)integration of people with disabilities is accessibility and reliable and detailed information about their environment. The access4you® certification mark ensures that certified accessibility information is available free of charge on the determined location in our database, website and mobile application for people with mobility, visual, hearing and cognitive disabilities. It is not only good for society but also for businesses. Owners can use the certification mark to increase the value of their property, have certified data in their ESG reports, while our accredited partners obtain business opportunities with real social impact," said Balázs Berecz, founder and CEO of Access4you, who has been a wheelchair user for 15 years. .
Accessibility and the lack of detailed and reliable information in this regard are global challenges. That's why Access4you began its international expansion in 2022 and, in addition to Hungary, is already working in the Czech Republic, Romania and India with the help of a network of accredited partners that includes Colliers and Bureau Veritas. "By expanding our international network of partners, we work together to build a more barrier-free world," added the founder.
"We seek to provide long-term capital to support startups that have a positive impact on society or the environment, in addition to their economic results. Access4you fits perfectly within these parameters. Growing market trends, international scalability and united team have motivated us even more to invest," highlighted Dénes Szluha, director of the Startup business unit at Hiventures.
Hiventures, part of the Hungarian MFB Group, supports the entire Hungarian business ecosystem with its capital and professional competencies, including innovative startups with high growth potential, traditional SMEs and large corporations.
