Safety on The Streets

Hack For Good is a 3 day bootcamp that will equip you with the skills you’ll need to start your own social enterprises from scratch.

 

We are looking for students from any subject area and level (undergrad or postgrad) to take part. You don’t need to have any experience of business or social enterprise, just the passion to make a difference and the drive to work with others to start a new project from scratch.

 

Over the weekend you will learn the basics of setting up a social enterprise, including idea generation using the social lean canvas, market testing and validation, and how to create impact for users. You will have the chance to network with and learn from a variety of mentors with experience of setting up their own social enterprises.

 

The weekend will culminate with a final pitch event to a judging panel, where teams will have the opportunity to pitch for follow on support from the enterprise team.
