UNLEASH Programs 2021

In 2021, all UNLEASH activities will take place online due to the COVID-19 pandemic. UNLEASH offers three different program components this year: UNLEASH Hacks, which are local hackathons solving sustainability challenges, UNLEASH+ a pre-acceleration program for UNLEASH Alumni who are actively building a solution, and the UNLEASH Community which includes opportunities for participants from all our programs.


Local Hackathons for the SDGs

The UNLEASH Hacks are localized innovation processes addressing sustainability challenges in specific contexts. With the UNLEASH community and methodology as a foundation, they can be highly adapted to local needs. Through a collaborative 2-day event, organized by UNLEASH Alumni, passionate talents work with local stakeholders and community leaders to collectively solve problems and contribute to the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).

An Incubator co-hosted by Chemonics International

UNLEASH Plus is a global 6-month incubation program for entrepreneurs working on social or environmental challenges, in line with the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals. The program provides teams with the right skills, mindsets, and resources to test and launch their solutions, and design them for large-scale impact.

Co-hosted with Chemonics International, the program supports teams with an early prototype to become an impactful organization, and enables them to create an effective strategy, build a solid team, develop clear financials towards fundraising, measure their impact, and start reaching their users. Participants access applicable learning materials, join interactive workshops, and receive direct support from world-class experts. Facilitated connections to investors and partners are made throughout the program to accelerate teams’ intended positive impact.
