program
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.
        Training programme consists of 4 modules, from precise determination of product to particular business plan.
        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
        Each module of lectures is dedicated to particular business processes and structured in such way as to reflect to the actual business development.
        Each module is followed by homework assignments.
        Homework forms a mandatory and very important part of the training, and they will be done by project teams between the modules with
        mentor supervision.
        at the end of the program, New Door accelerator alumni have:
