The first Impact Week of 2017 has brought the entrepreneurial and creative spirit to Bogotá, Colombia. The Impact Week in the south American country known for its incredibly hospitable people and entrepreneurial mindset has been the first one outside of Africa and thus marked a great milestone for the Impact Week being in its third year of operation. After having further developed/fine-tuned the program Impact Week Colombia has been another trial for the Impact Week discovering how the program adapt to different cultures and environments.
“We encouraged students to rethink the world they live in to make a change. We are excited to support them and their venture to become social entrepreneurs and start a business that shall positively impact their country and make a move towards making the world a better place.”

|"Impact Week is a great way to inspire and to get inspired. To teach and to learn at the same time. In amazing places with even more amazing people."||“Impact Week allows me to bring my business experience into society, make a difference and learn at the same time.”||“Impact week for me means: learning, sharing and experiencing. Give and gain, also friends.”||“Colombia is forging a historical path to achieve sustainable peace. Enabling students to actively participate in this transformation through entrepreneurship, is what this week is all about.”|
The event has been hosted by La Universidad de Bogotá Jorge Tadeo Lozano, also referred to as UTADEO. Following their vision „Innovamos: nuestra esencia“ („we innovate: it is our essence“) the university actively promotes research, innovation and creation in all academic areas.
