The Vanguard Accelerator Programme


The Leadership Vanguard is a unique programme bringing together senior leaders from across industries and around the world to collaborate with entrepreneurs to accelerate business models that solve systemic global challenges.

Our current model of economic growth is broken. We work with global organisations that want to be part of the solution, not part of the problem. Our partners understand that the biggest challenges facing our planet and our society can’t be solved by them alone. 

This is where you come in.

This year's programme has been extended due to the impact of Covid-19, but typically the programmes will span across12 month where participants from global organisations will work with start-ups to unlock their barriers to growth. 

This year, we are working with senior leaders from the following organisations:

  • Shell
  • Tata Group
  • HSBC
  • Baker Hughes
  • Unilever
  • International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC) 
  • Energias de Portugal (EDP)
  • DB Schenker
