ABOUT THE PROGRAM

What is the selection process to join the Full Formula program?


The application process is entirely done online. Here are the main steps: - You apply online here: https://forms.gle/yZUXAyBJPECkNV1r5. You will be asked a set of questions that allow us to grasp an idea about you & your motivations (willingness to become an entrepreneur, approach to collaboration, vision, etc.) - Deadline to submit your application: December 15th, 2020. - Between the end of December 2020 and mid-January 2021, your submitted application is studied by the Snowball Effect team. - You get an answer before January 31, 2021!




How many people are selected to join a batch?


Each batch is composed of 8 to 15 participants, who all have been selected through the application process.




Do you have to follow the Light Formula before applying to the Full Formula?


You don’t need to have followed the Light Formula before joining the Full Formula, as you automatically have access to the content shared in the Light Formula when joining the Full Formula. However, if you prefer to start with the Light Formula first, then you can join the Full Formula at a discounted rate (if you’re selected through the application form).




Once you are selected, are there additional requirements for 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.




What is the best track for me: the Full or Light Formula?


The Light Formula is the best choice if the idea of becoming a social entrepreneur or a spreader (i.e an entrepreneur who replicates a proven social business concept) is attractive to you, BUT you are not so familiar with social entrepreneurship in general and even less with what “spreading a proven social business” concretely means.In that case, this is the right program to follow! The Full Formula is the best choice if you are already pretty convinced that you want to become a social entrepreneur, but haven’t found THE idea yet to get started… For real! The idea of “spreading a proven social business concept” seems interesting and you’re ready to dig more into it (i.e. discover projects to spread, learn important skills for it & effectively spread one if you have a crush).




Who are the other participants of the cohort?


If you choose the Full formula, you will join a European community of peers. They can be 18 to 99 years old, but what matters is that they all aspire to become social entrepreneurs. They live in different countries across Europe and are strongly driven by the willingness to make the world a better place. They believe they can play a role through social entrepreneurship, by either becoming a social entrepreneur or a spreader.




Can I join the Discovery program even if I already have a business idea in mind?


The Discovery program (either light or full formula) aims to support people who don’t want to reinvent the wheel. Our main audience consists of aspiring social entrepreneurs who don’t have an idea to get started as entrepreneurs, so we provide them with proven ideas they can replicate elsewhere. However, if you have a nascent idea in a specific field, this program can be a good way to confront your idea and see if something similar has not already been done before.




How do you select the social enterprises of your portfolio?


We have spent a lot of time finding those diamonds for you. We have assessed them through a rigorous method and based on the following 5 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 doesn’t 100% rely on external grants. If you want to replicate this concept, you will be able to earn your living with it at some point.
  • Local: it solves a local problem at local scale. Although it can have a technological dimension in its solution, it is not a 100% digital solution.
  • Simple: The concept is easily understandable. And you don’t need to have 5 PhDs or to be a renowned chemist to be able to replicate the solution.
  • Empowering: the founding team initiating the social business (the ‘initiators') are sharing their concepts with others. Why? Check out all their motives in our manifesto.




How much does the Full formula cost?


The Full Formula costs 300€ per participant. However, the budget should not be a barrier. If you cannot afford it, we can discuss your personal situation. Please contact us.
