Written by Scaling | Mar 16, 2017 4:55:08 PM

Great ideas are hard to come by, and making them happen is even more challenging.That’s why Impact Hub has teamed up with AXA, a global insurance company serving 103 million customers in 64 countries, on their Prevention with Impact Accelerator. We’re looking to make a lasting impact on people and communities by scaling up an 
existing intervention that reduces risk and improves health and safety. 

If that isn’t already a great reason to apply, here are seven more: 

1. 50,000 euro for your innovative initiative

AXA’s employees will vote to choose one top intervention that reduces risks to people and property and award the effort with a 50,000 euro scaling grant. Eligible applicants should focus on health and safety, in areas including digital health care, chronic disease treatment, fire prevention, and home security (see full list). Initiatives should be globally scalable but can be simple concepts, such as a subscription health service that delivers disease prevention strategies via text.

2. Jet-set to Europe for a one-week acceleration program

One entrepreneur will be flown to a European city to participate in seven days of customized workshops. AXA and Impact Hub experts will personally tailor the program to accelerate your initiative and make sure it has a solid growth strategy.

3. Be mentored by an AXA Global Graduate

After the acceleration program, an AXA Global Graduate will work in close cooperation with you for three months to develop a plan to scale your program. You’ll receive personal mentorship and deliver a clear-cut plan for making a worldwide impact with your program.

4. Both for-profit and nonprofit entities can apply

AXA and Impact Hub recognise that positive impact can come from any type of business model. To ensure the best programs are submitted, we are accepting proposals from both for-profit and nonprofit organisations. The only limitation on who can apply is that you must be a legally-registered entity.

5. Receive expert advice by executives from the #1 global insurance brand

AXA believes that building better lives is only possible by working together. That’s why you’ll be able to consult with AXA Executives on how to maximize your initiative’s success throughout the program. AXA has a long history of innovation, so you know you’ll receive advice from people with experience and a desire for collaboration.

6. Backed by a community dedicated to driving positive change

Impact Hub is a network of over 15,000 members on five continents, all of whom want to see a better world through social innovation and entrepreneurship. Our community of experts in a wide variety of fields are ready to make sure you have the support you need.
