Champions teams from leading companies, composed from 7 to 10 members

With the objective to brainstorm and solve environmental & societal challenges

And to offer the value of an acceleration program to their supported NonProfit Organisations

THEY DID IT! They raised the challenge!

The first edition of the Impact Trophy was an unforgettable and impactful experience for the companies and the NonProfit Organisations!

The Impact Trophy gathered together 70 innovation champions coming from 6 companies using all their competences and creativity to create sustainable solutions and to increase the impact of selected NonProfit Organisations.

This collaborative experimentation was a unique opportunity for those champions to test their innovation capabilities and to acquire new skills and technics that helped them to develop disruptive ideas in a short period of time.

How does the Impact Trophy work ?

Explore & Ideate

Teams work together, with the help of their mentor, to get a deep understanding of the problem they need to solve and identify the targeted users. They start to ideate around first solutions to address the problem.

Build & Validate

Teams test and validate their assumptions with real customers, and start to develop their prototype. Experts-on-demand are available to solve specific challenges or questions they might have during the day.

Pitch & Celebrate

Teams start to prepare their final pitch to present their solutions. A panel of judges working in the area will evaluate their innovation potential, technical feasibility and social impact.
