It's a completely online/virtual program that'll help get you a clear strategy and expert accountability for managing the 'balancing act' in your social impact business.
We combine video courses, mentoring from veteran impact entrepreneurs, group coaching and a private Facebook group to help you walk step by step through the challenges you face.
We only open this to new students every few months. This is because we want you to go through the program together with other social impact entrepreneurs just like you. Having said that, we've designed The Bootcamp so you can access all it has to offer at the times that are convenient for you.
Most students take 3-5 months to complete the foundational program in The Bootcamp. Beyond that, The Bootcamp is tailor made to continue offering the mentorship, coaching, and accountability you'll need as you face new challenges in social entrepreneurship.
If you are...
-Still searching for your social impact business idea
-Struggling with the balancing act between making a dollar AND a difference
-Dreading your current work because it lacks margin AND meaning
-Or just needing a blueprint to bring your impact business idea to life
Then the Impact Business Bootcamp was made for you...

Social Change Nation has helped me manage the 'balancing act' to get from business plan to IN business. Thank you Josh & Social Change Nation for giving me the tools, resources, network, and motivation I needed to balance making a dollar WITH making a difference!
As a student, expect invaluable resources and connections to a great community of colleagues, together with unbelievable support from the founder, Joshua Schukman.
The great thing about Social Change Nation is the network of top caliber entrepreneurs that Joshua is able to engage with. They'll help you manage the 'balancing act' between profit AND purpose.
Social Change Nation provided remarkable content and practical guidance through group coaching. Their approach of incorporating real life situations of social entrepreneurs is very effective and encouraging.
I have been a student here since the early days of trying to balance 'dollar AND difference' in my venture...Social Change Nation's founder, Josh, has a knowledge and passion for social entrepreneurship that is unmatched. And he never hesitates to make himself available to share ideas, an outside perspective, and even his network.
It means a lot to those of us just starting out on a social entrepreneurial adventure to be able to talk with a real person and get some solid feedback. The time was inspiring and full of value. I definitely know now how I can balance margin AND meaning in my social impact business!
Good point. In fact, with our podcast, blog, and video content, Social Change Nation is one of the largest hubs featuring free content for startup social entrepreneurs. This will always be part of our mission as the toolbox for those working to make a dollar AND a difference.
But we always knew there was a group at Social Change Nation that wanted more. That's why we took it to the next level by offering The Impact Business Bootcamp. There is simply nowhere else that you'll find such a high caliber group of startup social entrepreneurs working together to spark change. By joining The Bootcamp, you'll be dramatically shortening your journey from where you are to where you want to be. You'll grow with a small group of fellow students who are equally as devoted to profit AND purpose. You'll get access to world class mentorship. And you'll take the very important step of investing in yourself and your business.
And, we've noticed something else... the students that invest the time, resources, and energy into a focused program are the ones who succeed. So, whether you choose to join our bootcamp or another program you will inevitably need to choose to sacrifice in order to win.
That's okay! The Bootcamp will help you with that too. As long as you know you want to start a venture that makes a dollar AND a difference we'll be able to walk you through the idea crafting stage!
Quite a bit! We have great relationships with our mentors - all of whom are veteran social entrepreneurs. As you have industry specific questions, we'll be able to take them to our mentors on your behalf. The mentors often appear in our private Facebook group too. Lastly, you'll get direct instruction from many of them via our course videos.
We focus on getting you the basic tools for making a dollar AND a difference within 3 months. As long as you're watching the videos, doing your homework, interacting on the Facebook group and taking advantage of group coaching calls, you will see significant traction in that amount of time.
Beyond your initial 3 months, The Bootcamp will be greatly helpful as you workshop new challenges and need new connections while growing your venture.
We have students from all over the world working in industries ranging from socially conscious fashion to tech for good. No matter the industry though, you'll find that all social entrepreneurs have a great deal in common.
Because we want to make sure that you truly believe that The Bootcamp will offer you far more value than what we're charging. Our heart is to get the best students in the program who are truly ready to make a massive impact and to invest in their success. If you don't feel sure on that, we'd be happy to answer any questions and walk you through that decision BEFORE you sign up.
Also, we offer a promise (via our guarantee) that we'll refund you every penny if you don't feel you get significant return, so you can rest easy there.
