The Future Shapers Program is a pre-incubation fellowship for young innovators with existing social venture.
An original program by the Hub of Innovation and Inclusion (HiFi) under the umbrella of De La Salle - College of St. Benilde. It is targeted to Young Filipino Innovators in and outside the confines of the campus with the intention to contribute to the sustainable future of the youth.
The successful applicant for this program will receive training in the following areas:
1 to 2 weeks
3 to 4 weeks
4 to 5 weeks
On the final week of the program, we will spend time to showcase the new or improved strategies and pitches of each of the Future Shaper’s venture.
HiFi’s network will be present; from venture capitalists, to angel investors, and even higher tier accelerators to connect the Future Shapers for a next level approach.
The Future Shapers Program is open to all agents of change aged 18-35 years old.
They must be currently leading or co-leading an active social venture that addresses a relevant SDG, with a preference on the following themes:
Their social venture should have a proven traction of at least 3 months.
They should be willing to commit to a 14-week intensive program in Manila (January 2020—May 2020).
The program run is set to kick off towards the end of January, we expect the Future Shapers to be committed in spending 14-15 weeks of their time to this program.
For the accepted Future Shapers outside Metro Manila, we will have a coliving space provided for you, a round trip fare ticket from your city of origin, and a food allowance.
For those that are in Metro Manila, we will provide transpo and food allowance for the duration of the program.
Application opens on Sep 16, 2019 and ends on October 30, 2019.
Shortlisting and Announcement will be in the month of November.
This program is currently for vetting only, the HiFi team will choose the most aspiring young innovators to be part of the program. The program is backed by HiFi Partners and Scholar Angels who will cover for the fee for this session.
