APPLY NOW TO CXC Business for Purpose Berlin
In partnership with TOMS shoes and social entrepreneur Sara Nuru, we are launching a very special edition ChangemakerXchange on 'Business for Purpose', for which we are looking for the most disruptive and creative young social entrepreneurs with social business models from across Europe and beyond.
ChangemakerXchange is a global collaborative community for over 600 of the world's top young changemakers to connect, share and develop cross-border collaborations.
We will bring this group together in a unique collaborative summit format close to Berlin from May 9th-13th, after which they will get the chance to become part of a global community of innovators. The summit will be followed by an accelerator program for this group to advance their impact to the next level, diving deeper into issues like system change, fundraising, holistic well-being and stakeholder engagement.
Please make sure to read the following information carefully before applying, also check out our values below (all of them co-created with our community) and take a moment to reflect if they are a fit for you, note we are not just an event nor a platform focused on networking or self-promotion for 'hero-entrepreneurs' but rather a genuine and authentic community of supportive peers. If your application is successful, the summit in May will be just the beginning, there will multiple opportunities to co-create and learn with our global community.
Europe (including Turkey), UAE, Israel & South Africa
LOGISTICS AND COSTS
ChangemakerXchange covers your travel costs to/from the venue as well as all of the summit costs for all four nights and five days (including hotel accommodation, inner city travel, food, entrance fees, etc.). However we expect you to cover your own visas, local travel to airport in your own country and from the airport to the venue in the host country (in very limited cases we may be able to support with some of these costs, please reach out to us).
Please note that we will be asking people to offset the carbon footprint of their flights and we are also committed to making our events as carbon neutral and environmentally friendly as possible.
* NOTE our view on offsetting is not that it enables us to 'guilt free' continue our polluting behaviour and that it MUST be invested into systemic projects which tackle root causes of climate change AND combined with difficult habit changes we all have to make (reduce absolutely everything you can, offset the rest)
