End of Training Academy

During the online Training Academy participants develop fundamental skills and concepts in the field of impact enterprise. Joint focus on selected business cases through peer-to-peer learning allows participants to immerse in an applied training environment.

The Kick-Off of the Online Training Academy took place on the 25th of February 2021. 12 weeks later 40 participants have been working in 10 working groups on 10 Venture Ideas and will present their results in a 3 minutes pitch on the 19th of May. A Jury of three representatives from the target region will give Feedback on the pitches and work done so far.

Successful Training Academy graduates will have the possibility to apply for the following Master Class (starting in June 2021) for in-depth knowledge to get financial and business plans of selected business ideas ready for launching.

We look forward to share more about the Pitching Session and the Master Class in our next Newsletter.
