Impact Measurement (IMM)
ImpactAim is helping start-up teams, innovators, scientists, engineers, researchers, and entrepreneurs
The ImpactAim acceleration program combines study sessions based on cutting-edge methodologies and hands-on experience in knowledge areas that are crucial for startup/business development, as well as tailored mentorship and individual coaching from instructors and experts. The goal was to strengthen ventures’ market base, scale up impact, and increase their investment absorption capacity.
ImpactAim hosts guest speakers from Armenian and foreign startups with notable traction and a social impact, as well as in-house trainers and experts. The acceleration program engages key resources, experienced entrepreneurs, mentors, advisers, industry thought leaders and other stakeholders concerned with the acceleration of ventures.
By the end of the program, teams develop and implement their operational models, which will increase their product capabilities in the market.
Ventures will also be introduced to a network of Impact VCs and angels with access to funding opportunities through targeted roadshows and pitching events.
