Partnership with NEXUS: support the growth of social entrepreneurs

Meet Nathalie Sauvanet, Global Head of Individual Philanthropy at BNP Paribas Wealth Management. Learn more about her mentoring work and listen to her valuable advice on dealing with current and future challenges.


BNP Paribas Wealth Management is the lead sponsor of the NEXUS Impact Accelerator for the 2021/22 cohort of start-ups.

NEXUS is a prestigious international community that brings together the new generation of philanthropists, responsible investors and social entrepreneurs. Its mission is to connect people together, be a source of inspiration and accelerate the development of projects aimed at making the world a better place, hence the creation of this Accelerator programme.

The Accelerator hosts six start-ups that provide a technological solution to societal challenges. Our goal, through this partnership, is to increase the growth of these start-ups, which will continue to have a very positive impact (both ecological and societal).



BNP Paribas Wealth Management has mobilised six internal mentors, handpicked for their expertise in impact investing, corporate banking, sustainable finance, philanthropy and innovative business development.


Nathalie Sauvanet, Global Head of Individual Philanthropy, shares her experience as a mentor and investment adviser to Resolute Marine, the company she selected for this purpose. This start-up produces drinking water, and electricity through wave energy in developing countries where these resources are scarce, therefore an extremely useful service. Nathalie explains the partnership and her mentorship role (encourager, networking facilitator, constructive critic) aimed at addressing the challenges of today and tomorrow.
