The 5th edition of RISE for Impact, Casa do Impacto’s acceleration program, already has an OPEN CALL! You have until October 7, 2023, to submit your application. Don’t waste any more time!

Casa do Impacto aims to promote solutions to environmental and social problems. We meet the needs of entrepreneurs with ideas and projects that need a push to reach their full potential. RISE for Impact operationalizes the capacity-building axis of Casa do Impacto with a focus on the social dimension of Impact Entrepreneurship.

It’s the ideal acceleration program for you if you are an entrepreneur with a project in the validation phase of an idea, product, service, or business model that promotes innovative solutions in solving social problems and needs under the 17 UN Sustainable Development Goals. This program was designed to generate your ideas and turn them into technically feasible and financially sustainable solutions, starting at the beginning of the pipeline.

The magic happens in 3 phases between October and June 2024:

1st > Bootcamp > The first moment occurs in October after the selection of the projects. Here, all the chosen ones participate, and at the end of this weekend, the ten elected will continue to the Capacity Building phase. Regardless of whether or not you move on to the next stage, the boot camp will allow you to network with people with the same mindset as you and exciting synergies may emerge for the future.

2nd > Training > In this second phase, which runs from November until February, the ten selected projects will participate in weekly training sessions at Casa do Impacto and will be able to develop their idea or project in several axes.

3rd > Incubation > This phase, which takes place between February and June, is where the best projects arrive. The three finalists receive a workspace at Casa do Impacto and tailored mentoring. The winner will be selected in a public session where they must present their final pitch!

The process is very enriching, and every moment is an opportunity to boost the projects, regardless of the final result in the competition. Undoubtedly, any idea comes out more prosperous than when responding to the Open Call. You don’t want to miss this opportunity!
