About Latam Impact:
Latam Impact, is a three-week long immersive and world-class learning experience to pioneer innovative solutions for today’s critical problems, in Latin America’s dynamic innovation hub. The experience connects participants to officials and leaders who will instruct on business, design, leadership, and sustainability topics.
Latam looks to connect extraordinary young minds with visionary experts to create solutions for the pressing issues in today’s society.
We are looking for a group of creative thinkers from the world's top schools, to join this unique entrepreneurial journey where we challenge multidisciplinary young minds to co-create innovative ideas and projects that can solve global problems in thoughtful ways.
Participants receive the mentorship of an extraordinary team of experts who are NYT bestselling authors, designed the first 'slate' computer, are guest speakers at NASA, mentored Snapchat's founder, and are looking to invest millions of dollars in young entrepreneurs who have world-changing ideas, like Bill Burnett (Stanford d.school and bestselling author), Cynthia Benjamin (Stanford d.school and guest speaker at Singularity), Martin Johnson (Princeton), Colleen Kelly (Harvard), John Armstrong (Stanford), Ryan Bloomer (Kairos Fund), as well as you will connect with Latin American CEOs, community leaders, international founders, government officials and forward-thinking business leaders.
Company's HQ visits, community and exploratory visits, workshops and inspirational talks and cutting edge tools like Human-centered Design, Product Development Labs, Social Innovation, Entrepreneurship, Sustainability, Venture Capital, Future Forecasting and Life Design Labs will be the foundations of a project-based and collaborative approach.
