Developing leaders while creating social impact

We offer action learning programs in which professionals and talents from disadvantaged communities develop their personality and skills while setting up a sustainable social enterprise. Through this unique learning journey, we provide individuals and organisations a platform to step up and take responsibility – for themselves, for others and for a higher goal.

  • Professionals develop their project management and intercultural communication skills, as well as personal strengths, while making a real difference.

  • Organizations foster entrepreneurship, engagement, agility and new ways of leadership.

  • Social entrepreneurs develop their skills, build a team and get investment-ready to put their vision into reality.

  • Impact investors engage personally with the projects they support and discover the power of impact investing.

  • Donors & Volunteers receive a platform to make a tangible and direct impact.



We believe in
learning by doing.

We embrace a 100% learning by doing approach: instead of studying concepts and theories in a classroom, we give you a real entrepreneurial challenge in an emerging market. We believe that you develop most outside of your comfort zone.

Two professional coaches accompany you on your learning journey, equipping you with all the tools and methods you need in order to act as an entrepreneur and developing your next-generation leadership skills.

All this comes in a part-time program. A total of 16 learning days are spread over 5 modules in the course of 6 months  including one intense week abroad, on site with your social enterprise. Between modules, you spend an average of 4 hours per week on virtual teamwork in-between modules.

You may join as an individual candidate or in a group of not more than 5 candidates per company.
