Community-minded social entrepreneurship residency Red Bull Amaphiko Academy heads to Baltimore for the first time

Red Bull Amaphiko, Red Bull's 10-day launch pad camp for grassroots social entrepreneurs who are working to make positive improvements in their communities, is headed to the States! At Red Bull Amaphiko, like-minded, solution-driven creatives and future (and current) business owners have the chance to collaborate on ideas, draw inspiration from each other, develop communities, and mentorships. The aim of this amazing program is to help activists, leaders, and dreamers to apply their skills and creativity to complete their goals in practical ways.

While Red Bull Amaphiko Academy, which was launched in South America in 2014 and is based in Brazil, has been a resource experience for creatives around the world, this summer is their first time bringing the launch pad to the U.S. In August, Red Bull Amaphiko Academy will host a 10-day residency camp for 15-20 accepted applicants in Baltimore, MD alongside partners Ashoka and Impact Hub Baltimore. The 10-day program is followed up by an 18-month development program for the entrepreneurs bring their projects and business to fruition.

Applications for Red Bull Amaphiko Academy have already closed, so keep an ear open for future opportunities on Facebook and Twitter.
