Impact Bootcamp

Beyond Impact – Seasoned research with practical experience

IMPACT BOOTCAMP is a 48-hour intensive learning experience that allows participants the opportunity to develop new Impact initiatives based on the societal problem they want to solve, defining their business models and implementation plans. The programme takes place continuously and dynamically, with moments of theoretical exposition and practical application over 10 sequential sessions, completing an innovative and robust solution. It balances moments of intense teamwork with relaxation and fun, networking and sharing. Each session includes the presentation of concepts, models and tools and immediate application by the teams, with support from a team of mentors.

You are the target!

The participants’ profile goes from curious minds and career shifters to entrepreneurs and executives from the public, private and social sectors. The experience is designed for people willing to start an impact pathway.
We encourage participants to be open minded and to get prepared for a life changing learning experience.

Once activated, all the sessions should take place within the period of 1 year.
