Connecting young changemakers with and without a start-up idea

Do you have an impact idea for a project or start-up? Or do you want to help another young changemaker kickstart their idea? This evening young people pitch their early social start-up ideas within an informal setting. After the pitches the audience will partake in a co-creation session working with tools from Lean Start-Up and Art of Hosting methods.

What’s in it for you

You will work together and connect with like-minded people! If you have an impact project you will get meaningful input from the people in our community. The presenters gain insights, feedback and network contacts from their peers at an early stage… and possibly new team members! If you are interested in starting a social enterprise but you do not have your own start-up idea yet, this is the way to gain inspiration and see if there are ideas, teams or people you want to join to tackle a social challenge together.

Do you have a start-up idea you want to present? Please register and we will contact you prior to the event to talk it through and help you prepare your pitch.
