Impact Camp

The ‘Impact Camp’ provides the winning teams of Social Impact Award 2019 with an intense personal learning experience and aims to equip them with essential skills for a successful journey as future entrepreneurs and change makers. Zooming out of purely entrepreneurship-related topics, participants will develop their individual capacities in more fundamental skill areas such as leadership, innovation, strategy, and connection. A highly experienced team of facilitators will lead the participants through a mix of hands-on skill workshops, interactive learning simulations and inspirational exchanges with experts and peers.


How to make the most out of it

How to prepare for the ‘Impact Camp’ and get the best experience:

Come with an open and entrepreneurial mindset

Everything you will experience at the SIA Summit is an invitation for you to challenge yourself on a personal level. Be curious, seize the opportunities and drive your own learning!

Leave the daily work at the airport

Sure – we know that the world keeps on turning and you need to keep up with daily tasks. However, the better you can reserve your headspace and focus for the SIA Summit, the more rewarding and impactful the experience will be!

Get ready to rock the SIA Global Village

On the last night of the Summit, we’ll have a “Global Village”, where each country represented at the Summit will present their culture, food, and drinks. We encourage you to bring some local/national drink – both non-alcoholic and alcoholic 😉 – all types of food & sweets, information material (or anything else that represents your culture and fits in your luggage) to share with other participants and show the rich diversity of our global community.
