BE THE IDEA OWNER

You are on a mission. To remake, recreate and revive a society that is broken.

You have a challenge that if solved could transform our day to day reality to an ALTER STATE. It is a fundamental issue in the way that we live, work, educate, inform, travel, use food or energy, communicate or manage wellbeing. Yes, you understood correctly what we are looking for is projects and ideas focused on solving SDG challenges

BE THE IDEA MAKER

You are probably already involved in the innovation world or you are just about to take the first steps.

You are a strategist, creative or a developer and you’re good at what you do. You’re here to challenge yourself, amplify what you know and alter your brain. You cannot wait to help and collaborate with others because you know that change does not happen in isolation.

BE THE NORTH STAR

You are an expert in your field. Or maybe even two.

 

You are fundamentally a feminist and you want to enable women to thrive in the STEAM world. You are keen to be a TEAM MENTOR, responsible for guiding the development process of 1-3 teams or you want to become a SKILL MENTOR - supporting a team with a specific problem or need.
