Social entrepreneurs creating opportunities.
This year we’re kicking off the debut of our annual Collective Global Accelerator! The CGA is an initiative started by social entrepreneur Andre Damian and The Collective to bring together 10 unique entrepreneurs from all over the world and give them the opportunity to grow into global innovators.
Here at our co-living building, Old Oak, we’re pleased to be hosting the 10 innovators from 8 countries in Africa, Asia, South and North America. Selected from over 3500+ applicants the chosen entrepreneurs will spend 4 weeks taking part in workshops and activities.
As part of the programme, they’ll learn how to build their business and brand, increasing their impact amongst other challenges of running your own business. Together with their personal mentors, leading experts and entrepreneurs in their industries, the entrepreneurs will be setting goals and building contacts to grow their network. Bringing their unique skill sets, experiences, and passions, we’re hoping to create an environment in which they can thrive as entrepreneurs.
As always the community is at the heart of what we do here at The Collective. By staying at Old Oak our entrepreneurs are encouraged to get involved in the activities and social events going on.
To conclude their journey they’ll all be taking part in a Demo Day where they’ll pitch their businesses in front of impact investors and leading organisations in London’s social enterprise scene.
