iWeekend Impact Ahmedabad – ideas with social impact
What is iWeekend?
iWeekend Impact is a 50-hour intensive and innovative experience that aims to bring together social entrepreneurs and professionals to present ideas with social impact and develop socially responsible business plans. The event is targeted towards social entrepreneurs, NGOs, technologists, designers, marketers, content writers, business students, finance & legal professionals who are looking to start their own social enterprise or are enthusiastic about contributing their skills and talent to a social project. The ultimate goal of each venture should be to create social impact.
We believe that there is no better way to network and meet other restless minds than by working with them side by side for two full days. iWeekend Impact is ideal for entrepreneurs looking to get started and for professionals and freelancers looking to broaden their horizons while taking on a challenge and collaborating in a project they like. The final outputs of the event include a basic business plan, a possible team, a prototype and a demo.
