The Impact Accelerator is a practical programme consisting of workshop-based activities, 1-2-1 mentoring and coaching.

Commencing on the 28th of November 2023, the Impact Accelerator will run each Tuesday morning for nine weeks. Participants will work in teams and learn to use the cutting-edge tools and strategies they need to follow their impact pathway, whether that means creating a company, starting a social enterprise or something else.

  • How to map out your needs using canvas models
  • How to plan your project and drive it forward
  • How to communicate the value of your idea
  • How to write, film and edit your pitch video
  • How to find and understand barriers and challenges and how to overcome them

It will run from 9am to 1pm (Ireland), 10am to 2pm (Italy) and 11am to 3pm (Latvia) each Tuesday with three sessions before Christmas and six sessions after Christmas.
