FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

Are there any requirements to join the Discovery Program?


Besides being an aspiring social entrepreneur who wants to contribute solving the pressing social & environmental challenges, below are a few requirements: You speak fluent English (the course will be 100% in English). You have a strong internet connexion as it is a 100% online program. You live in a country of the European Union. If you don’t live in a European country, it might not be very convenient for time zones. If you have a doubt, feel free to contact us directly.




How many participants is there per batch in the Community Track?


Each batch is composed of 7 to 13 participants to make sure the live sessions are highly interactive and qualitative.




Who are the other participants of the cohort in the Community Track?


You will join a community of peers coming from all over Europe. They can be 18 to 99 years old, and they wonder whether replicating a social business can be the right path for them. They are strongly driven by the willingness to make the world a better place!




How do you select the social enterprises of your portfolio?


We are spending a lot of time finding those diamonds for you. We assess them through a rigorous method and based on the following 4 criteria.

  • Impact-proven: the social business has generated positive social and/or environmental. This impact has been measured.
  • Viable: it has a sustainable business model which enables you to earn your living with it at some point.
  • Concrete: it has a concrete and tangible action on the field. Think tanks for instance are not eligible.
  • Empowering: the initial founders of the social businesses are wiling to share their concepts with others. Why? Check out their motivations in our manifesto.




Can you replicate a project that is not in Snowball Effect's portfolio?


Yes, absolutely! The Discovery program will teach you how to identify a social business that is worth and ready to be spread. We will help you get in touch with its initial founders/team. Besides, if the project fits our 4 criteria, we can also directly contact them ourselves to suggest they join our portfolio. In that case, the whole process for you will be easier.




How to know if spreading a social business is made for you?


Knowing if replicating a project is made for you or not is the whole purpose of the Discovery Program. Indeed, you might be considering changing jobs and shifting your career into the impact field. But this is a big move with lots of things to take into consideration (financial constraints, risks, aspirations, wishes, etc.) This program is here for you to learn about what replicating a project entails in every aspect. We put a lot of attention into designing a program that is pragmatic and hands-on, as this is how you’ll best know if it’s made for you or not!




Is the Discovery program suitable for you?


If you are interested in building an impactful and meaningful career and consider entrepreneurship as a possible path for you, this program will definitely be suitable for you! If you feel lonely in your search, a bit lost and you don’t really know where or how to start, this program will put you on the right track! It will help you get the “behind the scenes” information to make your opinion, build your network in the impact field, and feel connected with like-minded peers with whom you can move forward!




What if you want to replicate a specific project that is part of our portfolio?


If you want to replicate a specific project in our portfolio and you know this is THE one project you want to replicate, there is a specific program waiting for you :) Contact us and we'll give you all the details about this new program!
