SE Forum SE Forum runs the SE Outreach Program, that consists of several Accelerator programs, helping social entrepreneurs who address pressing issues in the developing world and emerging markets, to accelerate their businesses so that their innovative ideas can grow into high-impact solutions to the world’s social and environmental problems. The main program within SE Outreach is an 8 week Accelerator program in Stockholm that aims to build your business capacity. We will take your idea to the next level by providing you with seminars, workshops, mentoring, individual coaching, and group coaching as well as access to our network.

OVERVIEW

Description

The topics covered in the Accelerator programs will include but not limited to business modeling, communication and funding strategies, financial management, team building, leadership skills and social-impact metrics. The training is based upon the action learning-approach and you will learn by applying the new skills directly to your own enterprises. This will allow you to develop your enterprises as you move along the program!

Be inspired by other participants, find motivation from our mentors and speakers, extend your network in Sweden and have fun while maximizing your potential as a social entrepreneur!
