What can you expect?
The DCHI accelerator program guides you through the three phases of collaborative innovation:
Using our toolkit and the three workshops, you will be introduced to each phase, and guided through the process using Source2Gather. That means you will be notified at the start of each new phase! Throughout your journey with us you can expect three learning elements:
You will be introduced to theory on innovation that enables humanitarian aid and development organisations to look beyond funding strategies. We will focus on finding new solutions and business models to tackle those challenges that cannot be solved in isolation, but require refreshing partnerships to co-create sustainable impact.
Action Based Learning
We are firm believers that theory only delivers results if you can use it to take action! Using our innovative tools, you will be challenged in real time to think beyond your silos to truly transform your approach to a project.
Workshop & Support
As you can see from the timeline, each phase is accompanied by an interactive workshop. We will come together to take a deep dive in your content, and offer any additional help or feedback on your progress.
This HAP open innovation methodology has been developed and tested by the DCHI in close collaboration with Outside inc. to empower innovators in the humanitarian sector.
Good to know…
The 3 workshops will be 2.5 hours long on the given days. We strongly advise you to expect an additional (approximate) 2 hours of work a week, alongside the workshops, to achieve the greatest learning experience and ultimate impact for your project.
Way of Work:
We’ve seen the best results when accelerator teams show up curious! Often this curiosity has led to unexpected and interesting learnings.
The accelerator program takes a collaborative approach. This means that everyone will help each other by asking questions, providing feedback, and by sharing relevant contacts & stakeholders.
