Hub Youth Academy: Spring 2014
Impact Hub Islington launches one of our biggest initiatives yet: Hub Youth Academy, a two-week bootcamp for young social entrepreneurs, followed by a year’s membership to Impact Hub Islington.
Driven by ‘Inform to Impact’, it will inform, inspire, and develop passionate young people 18-25 who want to have positive impact on society’s most pressing problems through social enterprise. With the start-up rate of social enterprises tripling that of mainstream SMEs, driving young people into this sector provides an alternative to traditional economic markets and inspires innovative, value-driven careers that benefit society.
Our first Hub Youth Academy cohort runs April 14-25th at Impact Hub Islington.
Want to get involved?
Hub Youth Academy pitch event is on Thurs, April 24, where you can learn more about Hub Youth Academy and the cohort will be presenting the ideas they’ve developed to a panel incl. RBS Inspiring Enterprise, UnLtd and CodeFirst: http://hubyouthacademy-pitch.eventbrite.co.uk
