The preliminary jury will announce the finalists on August 13th. Stay tuned...
Earlier this year, DOEN Foundation and Rockstart organised the very first Green Challenge Deep Dive, an intensive 2 week booster program specially designed for the finalists of the Postcode Lottery Green Challenge. It offers proven accelerator methodologies to give the participating teams top-level personal, team and business support.
We are very happy to report we will be offering this accelerator program to all this year’s finalists as well! So even if you don’t win the competition, in addition to our loyal support and network, you will also be coming back to Amsterdam early 2015 for this programme!
