Rooted in the IMPACT10X methodology, this immersive experience is ideal for those with a passion project or career aspirations linked to research and innovation. This program is designed to supercharge your personal and professional growth through a dynamic and interactive approach.

The IMPACT10X AI Simulator operates on the principle of action-orientated learning, allowing participants to roll up their sleeves and actively engage in the innovation process. Over the course of two months, you’ll team up with fellow participants to navigate a ten-sector innovation value chain, fostering skills in team dynamics, lateral thinking, design thinking, prototyping and venture development.

But that’s not all! In addition to the innovation track, we offer robust professional development path. This includes invaluable support for your career growth, including CV and LinkedIn reviews, updates and constructive feedback. You’ll also have the opportunity to hone your interview skills in mock interview sessions. For those aspiring to excel in the boardroom, we provide training for board meetings to equip you with the essential skills for a sucessful career.

Your personal brand is equally important. In the IMPACT10X AI Simulator, you’ll develop a personalised strategy based on your own persona and lifestyle story. This approach will prepare you for future opportunities, allowing you to present yourself in the best light possible to the world.
