Exclusive Invitation Entrepreneurial Adventure to India (10th to 18th November 2013)
Dear friend, You are one of ten successful international entrepreneurs invited to be part of a first-moving Entrepreneurial Adventure in India, 10-18th November 2013. We call it an adventure. The idea first came in 2011 when Martin and Ole co-founded the NGO Periamma. Today, www.periamma.org supports approximately 2,000 children at 2 schools in India and 2,500 children across 20 schools in Kenya, Uganda and Thailand. Engaging with entrepreneurs, businesses, NGOs, local communities and schools to create and run these successful projects has been a watershed experience for both Martin and Ole. Part of the motivation behind the Entrepreneurial Adventure is to share the experience with like-minded and visionary entrepreneurs like yourself, inviting you to be part of a similar journey, mapped according to your individual passions and skills. The Entrepreneurial Adventure is a 5 phases process.
Phase Three is a team exercise. The group will spend 3 days to establish a business with a strong purpose in the Tamil Nadu region in south east India. The project must be up and running within 72 hours. Phase Four is a 3 day retreat in beautiful and peaceful Kerala. An ideal setting for getting to know and connecting with your life purpose. We also practice yoga/meditation, find time to network within the group, and go deeper into what purposeful initiative you could potentially launch. Phase Five is a 2 hour individual follow-up session after the trip to give you the best possible support in fully integrating the life changing experience you have brought with you from India into all aspects of your life. See below for more detailed information including agenda, investment and practicalities. We look forward to travelling, co-creating and learning with you. All the best,
Phase One is a pre-travel activity. 8 weeks before departure, Martin and Ole conduct a 1 hour interview and help identify a 3 hour assignment that will help you to be more clear on your Life Purpose and the type of entrepreneurial and/or social impact project you could potentially start up successfully. Phase Two is a 2 day stay in Delhi for meetings with a number of professionals and entrepreneurs, who have created social impact and/or business results in India on a big scale.
