- demonstrate a scalable approach to economics and outcomes.

Both individuals and teams are encouraged to apply.

Questions? We will host an informal networking and info session on the evening of December 3rd, 5:30-8:30pm at Wandering Cooks. Find event details and RSVP here (FACEBOOK EVENT PAGE TO BE INSERTED HERE ONCE CREATED) You'll be able to come and meet Impact Boom CEO, Tom Allen, alumni from our previous cohort and some of the program mentors. We have built a strong, tight-knit community of passionate, supportive and inspirational social entrepreneurs and we look forward to welcoming new alumni into the group.

The program has been designed to fit into your daily work schedule, with in-person sessions running from 5-8pm and the weekly digital modules being able to be completed throughout the week in your own time. A few days will require you to commit to extra time during work hours or on a weekend. These have been detailed below.

Applications will be shortlisted by Impact Boom and Brisbane City Council. Shortlisted applicants will undertake an interview via phone call to further assess the applicant's suitability to the program. Application is highly competitive and due to the large volume of submissions, we are unable to provide feedback to everyone. We do however, promise to continue providing everyone with free, weekly resources on our blog and podcast to help you turn your ideas into impact.

We wish you the best of luck with your application.
