GLOBAL INNOVATION INCUBATOR: FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS

WHAT IS AN “INNOVATION INCUBATOR?”

After spending years traveling the planet speaking to 1000+ women of all ages, we’ve gotten pretty clear that no matter what a woman’s social status, country of origin, economic or education level, she has a certain number of characteristics baked in. They are the things that make her an exceptional leader, creator, and humanitarian.

Our Global Innovation Incubator is a leadership development program and discussion forum built specifically to include and leverage the strengths of women based on their unique skills and abilities. It was created to include women with an idea that will impact at least 100 people.

The program will include participants from every single country on the planet by 2030.

Designed around our methodology of Self-Directed Empowerment™, our curriculum will take the resilience our participants already have and raise it to a level that is renewable and sustainable — for life. A solar panel for the spirit.

By having women join together to discuss, from a global perspective, the critical questions women are facing, we’re providing a springboard for discovery, collaboration and action around the world. Most importantly, we’re creating an environment for mentorship where different generations can come together to discuss issues that are now very much at the forefront.

Whether part of the cultural and economic discussion of Nepal, the United States, Pakistan, or Uganda, issues such as gender parity and domestic violence affect and connect every woman, and we know that change and understanding will be ignited by our similarities, rather than our differences. We are seeing that in real-time with every conversation we host, whether by video or in person.

HOW IS THE PROGRAM STRUCTURED?

It is a 6-month leadership development program based on our Self-Directed Empowerment™ model. This includes a 1-hour weekly video call as a group, accountability partners to keep participants on track, mentors who are experts in their field to help guide their path, a global network of powerful peers, events and guest lectures from leading authors, thinkers, and speakers, an online community, and mentor training for program alumnae.

WHAT IS THE SELECTION PROCESS?

We are carefully selecting a group of incredible women from around the world, with a spark that cannot be extinguished. We’re creating the support system and community we always wanted, but couldn’t find, so participation requires not only doing one’s own assignments, but also contributing to the growth and development of the group. That way everyone wins.

IS THIS FOR A SPECIFIC AGE GROUP?

Participants must be over 18 years of age.

IS IT ONLY FOR WOMEN?

Anyone who identifies as a woman is welcome to apply.

HOW DO THE DISCUSSIONS WORK?

Our incubator programming is managed via group video calls. We will offer live events at a future time, but right now our methodology is virtual so we can reach more people.

WHAT KINDS OF THINGS DO YOU TALK ABOUT?

Our program features foundational modules on things like resilience, leadership development, team-building, conflict resolution, and being a powerful woman in the world, owning all of what that entails. In addition, everything is geared toward bringing a participant’s big idea to life, or elevating her current project to the next level. We are focused on aligning efforts to create exponential results.

IS WHAT I SHARE CONFIDENTIAL?

Your identity will always remain confidential. We do gather information for the purpose of developing insights and doing research, but our main concern is to ensure your well-being, so nothing identifiable will ever be shared without your explicit permission.

DOES IT COST ANYTHING TO PARTICIPATE?

There is a nominal fee to participate in our program, and we will offer scholarships to women who qualify. We are adjusting all fees depending on the cost of living for specific countries. However, it is more important to us that the program get delivered, so we do not want women to have cost as the first consideration.
