Are you a startup interested in innovating through social impact? Sign up for Bootcamp Startup + Impact! 3 days of innovation with experts and impact startup leaders, at a minimal price including meals, coffee and toolkit.

“In the near future, successful organizations will be the ones that provide the most value for society, purpose for employees, consideration of stakeholders, and respect for the environment.” - Christian Bélair, Credo.

The Bootcamp: Startup + Social Impact

La Gare, in partnership with Credo, organizes a series of 5 workshops for startups aiming to integrate social impact and sustainability at the heart of their business models and practices. This bootcamp is an ideal opportunity to discover the various benefits of innovating for sustainability, to be guided in those strategic planning and to be equipped with tools specifically designed to help you become an impact startup.

Why participate?
This bootcamp is designed for participants to innovate and broaden the value they create for society. Social and sustainable innovations allow startups to create more value and seize unseen opportunities, especially if those innovations are integrated early in the development of the company.

This vision of doing business is increasingly being seen as a requirement to ensure long-term viability and success, both at the local level and at the international level.

The bootcamp is spread over 3 days and will include 5 complementary modules. Each module is structured as a half-day workshop, starting with a presentation of the key concepts, reviewing international and local best practices, and then establishing a personalized action plan for each participant/startup using tools specifically designed for this bootcamp.
