Reach for Change incubators are designed for early stage social entrepreneurs - people we call Change Leaders - who receive the tools and support to develop, implement and scale up their ideas. Our incubators give Change Leaders access to Reach for Change's global and local networks of corporate partners, potential investors, media contacts and other valuable connections. Incubators provide Change Leaders with public recognition and exposure for their work, grant funding that allows them to focus on developing their enterprise and above all: inspiration - a challenge to go further, to aim higher and to grow their enterprises into lasting solutions that impact children, youth and women's lives.
An incubator is not a physical place, but a program aimed at assisting the social entrepreneurs in their quest to impact as many lives as possible. The social entrepreneurs receive salary funding and expert coaching from our business partners. They gain skills in strategic planning; monitoring and evaluation; public speaking; attracting financial and human resources and on how to develop a sustainable business model. This is all done in-country, through face-to-face training and support as well as through regional and global conferences.
