iWeekend comes back to Ahmedabad, this time with an impact!
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. Our ultimate goal is to create social impact by facilitating connections and collaborations between those entrepreneurs and professionals who are motivated to solve some of society’s most pressing social issues.
iWeekend Impact will begin with an open pitching session on Friday evening, where ideas focused on creating social impact will be presented by the participants. Some of those ideas will be able to form teams and develop their project on Saturday and Sunday, using innovative and practical methodologies to build scalable ventures that address real-world issues. Established experts in social entrepreneurship will provide valuable mentoring advice throughout the weekend. On Sunday evening, each team will do a presentation to a panel of judges. In addition to gaining exposure and media attention, the winning teams will be provided with incentives and prizes.
