Social Innovation Lab's Impact Bootcamp

Do you want to change your neighborhood or the world?

Are you currently leading a community organization, nonprofit, or mission-driven business?

Do you have an idea for a project or organization you’d like to start?

Do you want to learn how to transform an idea into a project or organization that makes an impact?

If you answer yes to any of these questions, you should attend our Bootcamp!

Each year, through a competitive application process, Social Innovation Lab selects up to ten promising non-profits and mission-driven businesses and provides them with funding, mentorship, and more to help them make an impact and grow.

This Bootcamp is ideal for: (1) Anyone who wants to learn how to develop an idea into a viable project that makes an impact; (2) Current or aspiring changemakers, community leaders, and social entrepreneurs; (3) Individuals or teams currently launching or leading community projects, nonprofits, or mission-driven businesses; (4) High school students to retirees (and everyone in between)
