The LEAP programme seeks (future) leaders and change makers who are promoting innovative ways of tackling complex, linked social and environmental problems at their roots: highly skilled developers, entrepreneurs, creative designers and intrapreneurs, who have new ideas or innovations that they have introduced or want to introduce.
Government officials, financiers, or researchers who work for institutions that help innovations to flourish are also welcome to apply. An important part of the programme is to link participants together and create ecosystems of change makers who jointly can act as systems entrepreneurs and increase the transformative impact on society.
