The HEMA Foundation believes that design has tremendous potential to provide solutions for social challenges. That is why we are launching the HEMA Foundation Accelerator. A training and coaching program for up-and-coming designers who want to make a positive impact on the world. If you are an enterprising designer with no more than five years of work experience or still studying, now’s your chance!
The Accelerator will help you to create high-impact concepts that contribute to the overall mission of the HEMA Foundation. Which is: to tackle language gaps in children up to 4 years old and their families. You can propose your own (existing) concept for the Accelerator or come up with a completely new idea during the program. You don’t need experience in the field of language development!
Of course, we will also help you to transform your concept into a successful business. You will enjoy access to a broad network of investors and support in setting up crowdfunding campaigns. Not only that, but the best three concepts will be awarded €5,000 in start-up capital. The concepts remain fully owned by the design teams. It is up to you to determine what you want to do with the concept at the end of the Accelerator.
