YEAR OVERVIEW BRIGHTMINDS  ’18-‘19

GOAL

“HOW CAN WE MAKE THE WORLD A BETTER PLACE?”

Us, students, are a vibrant source of creativity and ideas. However, it often seems like a huge and difficult step to turn these ideas into something real. Together with AFD, we have set up the Brightminds program with as main goal to inspire and activate you around social entrepreneurship. In our view social entrepreneurship is the entrepreneurship of today and tomorrow. We’ll give you the tools needed to answer our main question: “How can we make the world a better place while making money?”.

Is this something for you?

With the Brightminds program we want to reach both ambitious students with a potential idea and/or breakthrough vision about social entrepreneurship, as well as the curious students who want to learn more about social businesses and innovative concepts that could change the world for good. We guide these students in the story of social entrepreneurship and show that it is possible to quickly develop an idea and put it into practice, provided with the right tools.

Annual planning

Program

The Brightminds program challenges students to think critically about problems that our society faces today. In the course of the academic year we organize workshops, lectures, interactive work sessions with cases and company visits in line with the chosen themes for a selected group of students. Those will take place every 2 weeks. What we expect from students is their presence and active, critical participation in the workshops. The program should not hinder studies, as students do not have to prepare anything, and will not take more than 2 hours per week. To start this academic year with a lot of enthusiasm, a teambuilding will be organized so that the students can get to know each other better.

What’s in it for you?

Students learn more about social entrepreneurship in a fun and interesting way. They come into contact with successful entrepreneurs and a new perspective on our society and are packed with innovative, enriching ideas that will become all the more important in our near future. At the end of the year, students will receive a certificate if they have been present sufficiently during the workshops: they are officially a BRIGHTMIND ! And who knows, maybe you meet your co-founder for your business that completely adjusts the current social course? Or maybe you gain skills that become more and more important, or even vital, in future businesses.
