- 3-hour workshop, for those who have a business idea that solves some social problem innovatively. During the workshop, 10 mentors help to devise a business model.
- a week program, where mentors share their know-how and how to avoid mistakes. This program is designed for starting businesses and non-profit organizations.
- 3 days sessions with 10 mentors about how to scale and measure impact, go through the appropriate forms of financing and discuss the impact of the investment. The program focuses on projects in a more advanced stage that already have a prototype, their users and their first profits.
