Sharing entrepreneurial ideas overcoming fundamental challenges
EVOLVEX EXPLORE CHALLENGE
The EvolveX EXPLORE Challenge is a program designed for Entrepreneurs and Entrepreneurial enterprises to overcome, fundamental challenges they are currently facing. We believe that with our program, our mentors, and the interaction between the different entrepreneurs, fundamental challenges can be overcome and real magic can take place. The program takes place in a totally different setting than the day to day business; abroad and with different impulses and all the facilities needed to work, network and reflect.
It is an explorative journey
+ Radically re-enquire a challenge
+ Group Think and Network
= A more Determined (new) Approach + Enriched Network
An entrepreneur has a strong desire to move into a different segment with a completely different business model. However, his current business is running great, he is a successful entrepreneur where after quite some struggles, his business is going quite smooth now. Yet he finds something is missing, he is not going after his passion; this other segment that he finds so exciting. He sees himself as a risk taker, yet unconsciously he does not dare to take this next step. When things are going, all of us are tempted to take a break, rest, and move smoothly instead of jumping towards the next roller-coaster ride.
The outcome of the EXPLORE challenge would be that the entrepreneur knows he is hesitant to take the next step since he is fearful of it. It does not have to mean he should take this step, only when he wants to. The goal is to make clear what the situation is and choose consciously.
GROW OR STATUS QUO
The Grow or Status Quo dilemma. A corporate division or scale-up is having the choice between focusing on its product to make it better or grow risking investments for expansion to be either profitable or in vein if product proves to be pre-mature or not in line with the overall goal.
The outcome of the EXPLORE challenge for this particular entrepreneur or corporate division leader could be to have clear vision on whether they want to expand or not and most importantly why.
HOW ABOUT YOURS?
Yes, your challenge! Ready to submit your application and let us know what your EXPLORE challenge is? We are curious and excited to hear about it.
NO! YOU CAN'T DO THIS IN THE OFFICE
Yes! That means you have to travel
In order to analyse a certain challenge / decision properly, we have to get out of our daily routine and take some distance. In the EXPLORE challenge we do both; 1) We really get out of the daily routine by several exercises, you are surrounded by people you are unfamiliar with. It is a 3-4 day program that is aimed to get you loose from your daily bias which every individual faces, 2) The different setting abroad is aimed to energise, it gives us new impulses a fresh and different perspective; new mental models!
"Incoming" from where you didn't see it coming
Mental models are how the brain makes sense of the vast amount of information to be processed every moment of every day. They are the lens through which we see the world. The filter that separates the signal from noise. The framework for attributing cause and effect. The “sorting hat” to decide what makes it into our conscious awareness. Shifts in mental models go deeper than traditional thought leadership. Most thought leadership tries to establish a company as an expert within the existing mental model. Shifts in thinking challenge the prevailing model.
Without the right mental model, we won’t see the problem, understand the benefits, or make the needed change.
The participants are just as important as the program itself; it is a teamwork dynamic
The EvolveX EXPLORE Challenge is about sharing your challenge with the other participants.
Most importantly it is about Evolving and getting to where you want to go.
Whether that is “the next step” or a complete shift in course of your enterprise.
FOOD & WINE
What good food and drinks don't do to people.
Our program is not packed from morning to late night.
There is plenty of time to reflect upon the day, discuss with the other participants, relax and enjoy the food. All off course smoothened-up a bit by some delicious wine.
Imagine taking this challenge, exposing your topic to those in this trusted environment and working with all of them towards overcoming each of those challenges. Add the environment you will be in, the group dynamics, great food and most importantly the 'mental' outcome to take back. And imagine sharing that with others doing the same. We won't be surprised if you stay in touch.
