The ChangemakerXchange is a co-creation of Ashoka, the world’s first and largest social entrepreneurship network, and the Robert Bosch Stiftung, one of Europe’s biggest foundations. The summit will take place from Tuesday October 2nd late morning until Friday October 5th early afternoon 2018 and participants must be able to attend all days.
Ashoka will only accept 16 entrepreneurs. The format is an un-conference. No powerpoints, no speakers. The first day is dedicated to getting to know the entrepreneurs and the ventures. The second day will reveal the talents and the knowledge in the group. The third day is dedicated to collaboration. We will have 4 facilitators to hold the space and the summit will be based mostly on the collective wisdom of the people who attend. This way we learn the most, and the most relevant content.
LOGISTICS AND COSTS
ChangemakerXchange covers all of the conference costs for all three nights and four days (including hotel accommodation, food, entrance fees, etc.). You will be responsible for your travel costs to and from Akko.
