Entrepreneurs are currently being trained in a narrow Silicon Valley model of success based on limited liability corporations, equity investment and profit. This approach actively reinforces the most damaging aspects of capitalism. How can we change this approach, so entrepreneurs around the world are inspired to build purpose-driven businesses that solve social and environmental problems, as well as generating profit?
The Trampery invites you to join us and reimagine a Radical new curriculum for the world’s entrepreneurs. As part of the Untitled initiative we are setting out to deliver a 12 month experiment called “Evo Untitled”. Our ambition is to pilot a completely reimagined Accelerator program, focused on social and environmental impact alongside profit, for 100 entrepreneurs in 5 locations around the world.
The seed for Evo Untitled is being sown by The Trampery, by the intention is to take it forward with a larger group of Untitled partners. Partners will be involved at every stage of the process: design, development and delivery of expert workshops. Crucially, the experiment will test the hypothesis that a large proportion of mainstream entrepreneurs will choose to establish a purpose-driven business if this option is included in their learning.
Join us for the workshop!
The 90 minute workshop will be fast paced and highly participative, facilitated by Tom Farrand. It will cover the following topics amongst others:
- What should a reimagined Accelerator curriculum look like?
- What kind of learning process triggers the Greatest creativity in entrepreneurs?
- How can we change the dominant Silicon Valley ideology?
- Which Untitled partners should be part of the experiment?
- Which 5 locations in the world should we work with?
