  2. Social Innovation Journey à la carte > 2 rounds of parallel workshops where social innovators will choose the SIJ block they want to work on with different scaling centres, using & testing incubation tools to further improve their solutions and explore new scaling opportunites.
  3. SI telling > train your pitching skills. Experts will be there to give some tips on how to create awareness about a solution, or pitch for investors.
