ACF in collaboration with Cardiff University ISoc invites you to join our exclusive ChangeMakers programme that aims to encourage entrepreneurial thinking and creativity among the youth by recognising and awarding talent.
What is the ACF ‘ChangeMakers’ Programme?The ACF ChangeMakers Programme consists of monthly seminars (last Friday of every month throughout the academic session 20/21). The seminars are open for all university students from any discipline at any stage of their studies to learn about and share creative and innovative business ideas. The seminars aim to inspire imagination and enhance understanding about innovative entrepreneurial processes and solutions, providing opportunities for participants to propose new entrepreneurial responses that can help fulfil their own aspirations but also bring positive change in the society addressing contemporary grand challenges faced by our communities.
What are the objectives of the ‘ACF ChangeMakers’ Programme?
The end goal is to recognise innovative potential among university students and to select 5-7 individual or collective ChangeMakers during the academic session 2020/21; highlighting enterprising and innovative projects for their thoughtfulness, creativity, value creation and socio-economic impact on the society. A panel of judges will evaluate the proposals, and the winners will be announced at the annual ACF ChangeMakers dinner in May 2021. The winners will be presented with ACF Awards as well as ACF interest free microfinance for launching the newly proposed entrepreneurial initiatives.
