Join this Purpose Challenge and make an impact in the world and in your life!
Why are we doing this?
There is a well-established scientific consensus that human activities are responsible for the increase in heat-trapping greenhouse gases in the atmosphere, causing average global temperatures to rise over time. This rise in temperature is changing global climate patterns and increasing the likelihood of weather-related natural disasters, affecting communities worldwide. Climate change has the potential to harm these current and future generations’ safety, public health, economy, and quality of life.
In December 2015, world leaders adopted the Paris Agreement, a global action plan to avoid catastrophic impacts of climate change, formalizing their concerted efforts to limit the global average temperature increase to 1.5°C above pre-industrial levels. The agreement urged national leaders to join forces with states and local governments to commit to net-zero carbon emissions by 2050.
But we’re late and we need to act as individuals and entrepreneurs, creating initiatives to fight climate change.
How will we 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, The Future of the Planet and Life !).
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: Upon enrollment, all participants receive free training on the Purpose Launchpad agile framework. In addition, there will be a week of inspiring lectures (delivered by subject matter experts) to provide participants with ideas and new insights on the subject.
Challenge Day: Individual participants are grouped into teams (if not registered as part of the team) and work during a 3 hour session in order to generate disruptive ideas to have a massive impact in the Purpose Challenge area, using the Purpose Launchpad agile framework and supported by Purpose Launchpad certified mentors. Additionally, startups spend the 3-hour breakout session analyzing and developing their current solution with the support of an official Launchpad Mentor.
Purpose Evolver: A number of initiatives and new startups will be selected to join the Purpose Evolver program, where certified Purpose Launchpad mentors will work with teams and new startups for another month after the Purpose Challenge to evolve their initiatives and maximize impact.
Evolution presentations: Teams and startups will present their initiatives and their evolution to the Purpose Alliance community to find new entrepreneurs and purpose-driven investors who are willing to support the evolution of the initiatives.
Purpose Launchpad, an open agile framework 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 agile framework to either generate and/or 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 agile framework 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, learning (with free training and real experience) the Purpose Launchpad agile framework and working with a certified mentor is a prize in itself!
