Thank You

LEAP Competition

Competition Details

Imagine you find yourself in an elevator with the female leader you most admire. You have 30 seconds to tell her about your idea, before she steps out. You have to inspire her and convince her that your idea is worth investing in. 

This is your challenge. In a 30 second video tell us about the social enterprise project you would like to develop during the LEAP 2022 programme. Make sure to include:

  • Who you are
  • What your target social / global / environmental / empowerment issue is
  • How you would like to make a difference
  • Why you are the best person to do this

Remember you only have 30 seconds! So be clear, precise, but above all passionate about your cause!

Win an expenses paid trip to attend LEAP 2022
