Our program

Supported by the Drosos Foundation, Dare Inc. is our flagship program to support game-changers and social entrepreneurs who are committed to developing innovative solutions to major social issues with a high potential for scale, both locally and internationally.

Dare Inc. aims to ignite the social entrepreneurship ecosystem in Morocco and develop a strong deal flow of investment-ready projects at international standards. Dare Inc. is a three-track program that aims to support social entrepreneurs from the moment they decide to tackle a social issue until they incite systemic change by means of a viable startup. The program is designed to respond to the specific needs of each startup at each stage of their development.

We offer support through training, coaching, mentoring and funding to social startups at different stages. Once you join our program, we will co-create a plan that is tailored to your needs and your objectives.

What we offer

What we look for

  • A clear solution to a precise societal need: You provide an innovative solution to a clearly identified societal need and, whenever possible, provide figures and sources that can support your arguments.

  • Scalability: Your business model should be replicable on both a local and international level.
  • Personal Ambition: You’re clear about your motivations and your personal objectives as a social entrepreneur.
