Startups' Roundtable
Entrepreneurship masterclass through impact strategy - Laura Francois & The Spaceship Academy
September 3, 2020
Laura Francois is a Co-Founder of The Spaceship Academy which is an online entrepreneurship masterclass taught through impact strategy, to enable more entrepreneurs to solve for the Sustainable Development Goals by aligning the entrepreneurs' life purpose and the global challenges we face collectively. Laura is also a founding member of Open Door Policy, a not-for-profit focussed on upskilling marginalized communities that lack access to traditional employment, such as refugees and stateless people, for remote digital employment. With a focus on collaboratively designing systems for sustainable development while leveraging the startup ecosystem, philanthropy and the creative economies, we had a lot to explore in this conversation.

The Spaceship Academy is a hands-on knowledge program for entrepreneurs focused on solving some of the world's biggest social and environmental challenges. 

Laura Francois, as a Co-Founder has built the starting place for building the tangible tools needed to effectively participate in radically changing the world through entrepreneurship.  Her experiences from this and previous startups allowed us to learn from the bumps and to project forward through Lauura’s eyes into the entrepreneur's journey.
