Impact Masterclasses

Join a curated group of impact entrepreneurs (scaleup founders) for a series of interactive sessions with impact experts. We invite academics and professionals who are working for a new economy. Each session broadens your scope and you will gain a deeper understanding of strategic processes and complex challenges. After each session you will have new insights, connections and opportunities to take into consideration for your business.


Impact Masterclass: Resilience 

Resilience, including the ability to let go of the old and create new patterns, is one of the biggest predictors of (leadership) success. As a leader and team, what are your attitudes and behaviours in times of hardship? How do you respond to major stressors, challenges and unpredictable contexts? How can you build strong team resilience? In this Impact Masterclass we will make sure you get the tools to expand your resilience capabilities to be ready for whatever comes your way in the near future.

Impact Masterclass: The Transition Arena – A process approach to stimulate transformative innovation 

Every few generations our societal systems change radically. Under pressure from climate change, biodiversity loss and inequality among other things, there is a growing call for such systemic change. But how do societal systems change? And how can you stimulate transformative innovation for systemic change? In this workshop from our Expand Membership, DRIFT will share their content-based process approach to stimulate such transformative innovation: the transition arena. You will not only learn from theory, but also experience the method yourself and contribute to the arena.

Impact Masterclass: The New Economy as a business model 

Conversations about a new, inclusive, sustainable and circular economy are becoming more common nowadays. To gain clarity, we should always map the broader ecosystem and go beyond products and customers. Using the Business Model Kit we will map complex ecosystems, identify different stakeholders and investigate value exchanges between them to identify challenges, and define improvement areas and opportunities to explore further towards the new economy. At the end of this Impact Masterclass, we will discuss potential cross industry collaborations and partnerships.
