  • Ask yourself the right questions & collect insights from the group,

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

 

ABOUT THE PROGRAM

How many participants is there per batch?


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




Are there any requirements to join the 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.




Who are the other participants of the cohort?


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 we select the social enterprises that are in our 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.
