Our Summer School is a unique program developed to help shortlisted INDEX: Award 2015 Finalists take their life improving solutions to the next level.

The main goal of the school is to prepare these selected design entrepreneurs for our Investor Day, where they will share their ideas and seek support from leading investors and impact investors.

The first step of the program is connecting our selected candidates to business consultants from The Boston Consulting Group (BCG) who help them develop a preliminary business model. Design entrepreneurs then attend the Summer School in Copenhagen, where Scandinavia’s leading business accelerators, Accelerace, provide further development to strengthen business models, drive customer and sales development, as well as prepare candidates for pitching their ideas to investors.

This years’ program includes masterclasses, seminars and inspirational talks from Heartreacher, Noma, Ruby Cup and Rainmaking, just to name a few.
