Past programs

Social Challenges Innovation Platform

This platform matches “challenge owners” – local governments, organisations, NGOs and companies facing a problem which needs solving – with the entrepreneurs, start-ups and social innovators that can solve them.

Each challenge will be matched with 3 solutions. Their providers will receive a grant of 30,000 euros and a six-month mentoring program to help them develop their idea. The very best entrepreneurs will then work with the challenge owners to turn their concept into reality.

IMPACT COACH – En ny roll håller på att utvecklas

Vi ser att entreprenörens roll blir mer komplex, man måste dagligen fatta avgörande beslut och omgivningen förändras i allt snabbare takt. Entreprenören förhåller sig inte längre till statiska modeller och rapporterings strukturer, utan behöver agera lika snabbt som sin omgivning. Det finns utrymme för en ny roll för mentorer och affärscoacher för att förlösa drivkrafter hos entreprenören och stötta dem till framgång.
