Business Model Challenge | Inclusion

In three months, you will finetune your business plan, strengthen your entrepreneurial skills, and expand your impact business network in a blended, on & offline programme. The theme for this season’s special edition: Inclusion.

This program is part of our Inclusion Ecosystem, where we run programmes, organise events, and bring parties together to make a positive impact on immigration, (refugee) integration, discrimination, LGBTQ+ rights, gender equality, disability, or poverty, for example.
