YOU CAN HELP WITH COVID
IN INDIA, BRAZIL AND BEYOND
Why are we doing this?
COVID-19 has become one of the main global challenges of society, with more than 3 million deaths across the world. There are countries, such as India and Brazil, where COVID-19 is accelerating and there is an urgent need to implement innovative solutions that can be implemented not only in these countries but in all the world to bring a positive impact.
We believe in the power of people and global communities to change the world, so we are launching a non-for-profit and online initiative to put together amazing doers and startups from all around the globe to overcome this challenge and help with COVID-19.
The goal is to bring doers who want to come up with new solutions and/or startups that can make a positive impact around COVID-19, focused on the main problems and implications that the global pandemic is bringing, including:
Medical equipment hacks
...and any other field affected by COVID-19
How we will do it?
Purpose Alliance is a non-for-profit entity focused on empowering extraordinary people to create the future.
One of the main activities of Purpose Alliance is running Purpose Challenges where both individuals and existing startups participate to either generate new ideas or evolve existing solutions in order to make a masive impact in a specific area (in this case, climate change!).
Purpose Challenges have the following phases:
Application: People and startups apply to participate in the challenge. Also, mentors, partners and investors apply to get involved in this amazing process and support the participants to generate and/or evolve their initiatives.
Training and keynotes: The week before to the Challenge, all participants get a free training on the meta-innovation methodology Purpose Launchpad. Also, there will be a set of inspirational keynotes (given by domain experts) to provide participants with insights and new knowledge on the field.
Challenge day: Individual participants are grouped into teams (if they didn't register as part of team) and work during a 3-hour session in order to generate disruptive ideas to make a masive impact in the area of the Purpose Challenge using the Purpose Launchpad methodology and with the support of certified Launchpad Mentors. Also, startups spend the 3-hour working session analyzing and evolving their current solution with the support of an official Launchpad Mentor.
Purpose Evolver: A number of initiatives and startups will be selected to join the Launchpad Evolver program, where certified Purpose Launchpad Mentors, doers and investors will work with the teams and startups in order to evolve their initiatives to maximize the impact.
Purpose Launchpad, an open-sourced
methodology to make a massive impact
Purpose Launchpad is focused on generating and evolving early-stage ideas into purpose-driven organizations to make a massive impact.
In order to generate disruptive ideas and/or evolve exiting solutions to tackle this global challenge, we will use the Purpose Launchpad, which is an innovation goal methodology with which people can evolve early-stage ideas into purpose-driven, sustainable, and eventually exponential organizations that will make a massive impact.
Purpose Launchpad includes eight different axes with the areas that innovative initiatives need to properly assess and evolve in order to successfully make a massive impact. These areas are purpose, people, customer, abundance, sustainability, process, product and metrics.
Also, in order to continuously evolve the previously mentioned areas, the Purpose Launchpad meta methodology uses dozens of proven and open innovation frameworks, processes and tools such as Lean Startup, Design Thinking, Agile, Exponential Organizations, etc.
Participating in a Purpose Challenge, getting to know (with the free training and the real experience) the Purpose Launchpad methodology and working with a certified mentor is a price itself!
