Impact Hub Fellowship is a topic focused entrepreneurial idea award and one-year incubation program designed to attract, select and support early stage impact orientated entrepreneurs and help them realize their innovations for a more sustainable world. Each Fellowship gets implemented by the collaborative effort of the key stakeholders.
The Fellows and finalists contribute to solve key pressing social and ecological issues of our time with enterprising ideas. They receive start-up funding as well as connections to peer entrepreneurs, coaches, and other valuable contacts. These relationships, combined with skill trainings, help facilitate the start-up of thriving social businesses. Further they receive free Impact Hub memberships to access a vibrant community of changemakers in an inspiring work atmosphere. The ultimate goal is to help them build a strong foundation to grow into scalable, innovative, impactful ventures.
Kick is a six-week training program designed to empower entrepreneurs like you to be the best you can be. The Kick program has been developed to provide teams or individuals with the knowledge, skills and tools that will help validate your idea and start your business venture.Through the six-week program, the cohort will meet 1 to 2 times per week with the best mentors in each industry. During the program, we provide valuable support and tools to the selected entrepreneurs in development of business models, Minimum Viable Product (MVP), prototyping, validated learning, and operating models. Throughout several sessions—and guided by subject matter experts, coaches, and veterans—participants consider various theories and modern business practices, examine real-world cases, then arrive at practical applications.
