The Apprenticeship Challenge is an edition of our Entrepreneurship for Good Program. With its learning-by-doing approach, this program gives you the opportunity to learn innovation and implementation skills for your own impact venture by working on a real-life innovation Challenge (here: The Apprenticeship Challenge) during 10 weeks in campus, in this case in Sinal do Vale (50 kilometers from the center of Rio de Janeiro). During the second phase of the program, you’ll go back home to launch your venture with support from your DO School mentors and peers.
- You have an idea for a social impact venture and are ready to commit 10 demanding, high-energy weeks in Brazil to work on the Challenge and develop your venture further, and also want to dedicate the following 10 months at home to bringing your idea to life.
- You have proven skills and expertise in the following areas and would love to contribute these so as to create an actionable and amazing Challenge result: Education and training, HR, project management, international development, sustainability, etc. Or you might have other skills or expertise that you believe will bring a unique and fresh perspective to the solution of the Challenge.
- Your knowledge of English is good enough to participate in a program entirely conducted in English.
The DO School offer inclusive educational opportunities for talented young adults regardless of their socioeconomic or educational background. If you feel that you have the right skills and motivation, and a venture which might be either in planning phase, an emerging start-up or a growing organization, the DO school encourage you to apply no matter whether you are a university student, a graduate or have no higher education at all.
- Get the skills
The Entrepreneurship for Good Program kicks off with an intensive ten-week learning experience on campus. Faced with a concrete innovation challenge set by a major organization, you and 19 other Fellows will learn how to apply the DO School Method to conceive, plan, test, and implement a solution.
- Learn from the best
Renowned experts will share their wide entrepreneurial experience with you. Our Fellows have had the chance to hone a variety of skills in challenges set by H&M, Messe Berlin, the New York Mayor’s Office and in collaboration with Nobel prize nominees, tech gurus’ and experienced entrepreneurs.
- Bring your idea to life
During the ten weeks on campus, you will already be working on getting your own venture ready by gaining innovation and entrepreneurial skills. Back home, you will spend the next ten months bringing your idea to success, benefitting from close mentoring and the DO School’s support and coaching structure.
