What the Program OfFers
Tools for Managing Impact Projects
Over a three month period, we deliver weekly workshops to the cohort of entrepreneurs, providing tools for innovation and entrepreneurship, and developing leadership, teamwork, communication, and agile project management skills.
In order to help give more visibility to the participating projects and their products, we offer them a place on our digital platform, La Tiendita.
Access to Mentorship
Participants have access to our network of more than 80 national and international mentors who support the professional development of the entrepreneurs and the strengthening of their business models.
The program is a process of self-reinvention and learning to create positive disruptions in the day-to-day routine. Participants begin to see their project or startup not just as a business opportunity but as a path to realize their own potential as human beings.
Talks WIth Experts
Panels and webinars with expert guests on topics of innovation and entrepreneurship, to inspire participants to learn from the experience of others who have walked the path.
Optional guidance from a professional coach who works one-on-one with the entrepreneur, supporting their socio-emotional development and helping the get the most of the often turbulent entrepreneurial journey.
Regular consulting sessions with each project to further work on the concepts covered in the group sessions and apply them to real-world experience.
Participants become lifelong members of a community of people who don't just dream of a better world, but are already setting out to create it.

Why This Program?
After a more than 50-year conflict with tragic consequences — with more than 9 million victims — combined with a history and current reality of profound social inequality, Colombia continues to fight resiliently for a country that is fair and just, and at peace.
Our program for peace and reconciliation seeks to contribute in a direct, systemic, and sustainable way to this purpose.
You, too, can support this program.
