Or train refugees as foreign language tutors to increase livelihoods and positive cultural exchange?
Or revolutionize the way veterans re-enter the workforce?
To bring big ideas like these to life, Ashoka and American Express created the Emerging Innovators Bootcamps.
The Bootcamps, which happen in New York City, Madrid, Mexico City, Nairobi and Dakar over two to three day periods, are intensive trainings for 125 rising social innovators to discuss and analyze best strategies to grow and sustain their social ventures. Twenty-five innovators gather in each of the five locations to receive expert guidance and peer support and to reflect on the inner growth and wellbeing necessary to be a strong leader.
Since 2013, the American Express Leadership Academy Emerging Innovators Bootcamps have supported a total of 534 entrepreneurs in Mexico, Canada, Europe, the United States and throughout Africa.
