Description

Are you an aspiring social entrepreneur who wants to find your role in making the world a better place? This one-day Groundswell experience will kick off your journey.

Groundswell's suite of social entrepreneurship programs run from 1 to 5 months in length, but this year we are happy to introduce the first-ever ‘Groundswell In A Day’. Here, the most essential parts of our self-employment and small business building programs will be distilled into an unforgettable one-day Groundswell experience.

We're offering this full day of workshops, tools, and techniques for only $65!

Groundswell's suite of programs run from 1 to 5 months in length, but this year we are happy to introduce the first-ever ‘Groundswell in a Day’. Here, the most essential parts of the programs will be distilled into an unforgettable one-day Groundswell experience.

In this day, you'll:

  • Explore your inner entrepreneur and fire up your confidence.

  • Learn and apply lean startup tools and techniques to test your ideas and help make them happen in the real world.

  • Discover a fresh, widely applicable marketing ethos that doesn't feel gross, and connects people emotionally to your idea.

  • Connect with Groundswell alumni who have changed their life by finding and training their entrepreneurial muscle (and strengthen your own - literally and figuratively!).

  • Start relationships with likeminded people over a shared potluck lunch.

  • Meet 2018-19 Groundswell program participants and determine if it might be a good fit for you too!

Walk away with:

  • New-found insight into your potential as a social entrepreneur, writing your own future.

  • A technique for understanding whether your idea is viable, and if people really want what you're offering.

  • A clear story about the heartbeat behind your idea to attract and inspire the right people.

  • Inspiration from real stories of starting up from new, heart-led entrepreneurs from the Groundswell community - and their contact info!

Bring with you:

    • A printed (hard copy!) photo of yourselves when you were a little kid or toddler.

    • A dish to share for the community potluck lunch.

    • A notebook and pen.

    • Comfortable clothing you can move around in.

    • Open ears, eyes, heart, and a willingness to jump into something new!
