social entrepreneurship
our social entrepreneurship acceleration program is geared to provide tangible value to our participants and, subsequently, communities that they are serving. It is designed to accompany participants on their journey from an idea to a sustainable business plan, to contribute to their business understanding and personal growth.
    Only business professionals with a proven record in their field achieving sustainable results find their way to New Door faculty. It makes a fundamental difference in how subjects are presented and what is the outcome of the program in terms of real-life-applicable knowledge and skills.

    From the very start of the course, each project team is assigned a Mentor, sometimes more then one, to guide and help through the process of business development. All mentors are high valued entrepreneurs, business professionals or specialists in their field.
        The program consists of 4 modules, 2 full days each. Modules are spread in a distance of 1 – 2 months to allow for intensive personal work in between.
        here is how our social entrepreneurship acceleration course works:
        clear definition of their product or service and its business model

        clear sales and marketing plan

        investor-ready business plan

        detailed action plan for 1 year and an action plan outlook for 3 years
        Modules are dedicated to specific business processes and structured to mirror the logic of business development.
        Each module is followed by homework assignments. Homework is mandatory and is critical part of the studies. Homework between modules is done in project teams and is closely supervised by mentors.
        at the end of the program, New Door accelerator alumni have:
