The C3 Social Impact Accelerator program addresses key milestones in the journey of a social entrepreneur and focuses primarily on helping entrepreneurs maximize their social and environmental impact on the community.
Up to 20 finalists from the UAE, KSA, Kuwait, Bahrain, Oman, Egypt, Algeria and Turkey will be selected to participate in a week-long program in March 2020 in Dubai with impact investors and experts from the social enterprise world. All participants have to contribute to the UN Sustainable Development Goals (such as health, education, etc.).
The program’s participants will benefit from a two-month program of training and one-on-one support, aimed at getting them investor-ready. Once in Dubai, they will benefit from customized lectures and interactive workshops on topics such as Theory of Change, Business Modeling, Social Impact Measurement, and Governance as well as tailored expert sessions where participants will receive one-on-one support from business and social impact experts. The program will also feature a board simulation and a pitch competition. The winner(s) of the program will receive equity-free cash prizes.
