Social Innovation Bootcamp

Design an impactful intervention for your community

The Social Innovation Bootcamp takes a human-centered approach and leverages design thinking to guide social entrepreneurs through the stages of ‘inspiration, ideation, and iteration’ focused on the pre-incubation stage.  BuildPalestine’s role is to empower individuals to design thoughtful and impactful interventions for their communities. This intervention can be a product, service, intiative or program.
