The Impact Academy is a unique opportunity for senior corporate employees and impact-driven entrepreneurs to embark on an enriching 5-month journey and learn from each other’s challenges and expertise. Senior employees get the chance to leverage their expertise towards creating a tangible impact, while developing their leadership and coaching skills. On the other hand, entrepreneurs receive targeted support in crucial areas of their business. Throughout the program that is held twice a year, SEIF provides additional input sessions covering crucial topics such as impact management, impact investing, best practices and pitch training. The aim of the program is to make startups ready for impact investments and to support them in overcoming challenges in specific areas of their needs.
Please note that this is not a financing program and participants will not be allowed to ask for financial support from their coaches.
This program is flexible and offers on- and offline options. As it requires a high level of commitment, your attendance is valued on certain dates:
