Inspiration Programme

The Inspiration Programme incorporates leading keynote speakers from the world renowned in technology, travel, tourism, innovation and entrepreneurship. Designed to offer ‘time-out’ from the intensity of the work programme, a series of talks are programmed into both the five and ten day programmes and aligned with the themes established together with the host destination.

The hybrid nature of the programme will see some keynote speakers joining in person, to really create a time-out thought leadership session, followed with discussion and one-to-one sessions while others will contribute remotely. Further supporting the programme’s aims to inspire change through entrepreneurship, technology and innovation, an additional programme of online content can also provide an extension to the core programme.

Advice & Growth Clinics

Also interwoven into the programmes are a series of clinics, which entrepreneurs can opt to join to get expert advice on their ventures at a critical early stage. Advice clinics can range from financial and legal advice to expert support on achieving growth through data and technology.

In bringing together a diverse team of experts, clinics can be delivered in person and online. In order to match the right field experts to the needs of the programme, Impact Hub will call upon a team of locally based experts as well the hub’s global pool.

Tourism Impact Pitches

Pitch Nights are hosted at the end of second part of the programme. With the five and ten day programmes the pitches represent the conclusion of an intensive short programme where entrepreneurs can pitch their vision, mission and solution directly to investors, industry experts and potential partners who can help them scale.

Importantly, this is where entrepreneurs can pitch their ideas, concepts and businesses plans to the full collective, comprising both the destination team ‘on-the-ground’ alongside the complete dispersed network remotely.

Whether successful in securing investment or not, the final round of Impact Pitches sets entrepreneurs off on their journey towards positive impact through entrepreneurship.
