MasterClass 1

MasterClass 1 designed, implemented and assessed a training program in entrepreneurial acting which trains our Community Heroes as trainers for community members to setup worthwhile tangible businesses. Before releasing the program to the community as an additional paid service offering, the Community Heroes live through it themselves by expanding the services of their learning centers.

Structure and process of the MasterClass follow a design attitude and evolve over the course of the program. Before start of the program, candidates only agree on the dates for the kick off module and the period of 6 months for the joint experience. At kick off, candidates define structure and process of the program by themselves, based on their availabilities and the requirements of the challenge. At the end of the program, candidates have the possibility to hand over the current status of their challenge to the next Capability Program for further implementation.


The MasterClass Team went to our learning center in Bandarawela, Sri Lanka to pilot entrepreneurship courses. See the videos below to get an idea on what they have been doing on the ground.


The MasterClass was kicked off on September 22-23, 2017 at BOOKBRIDGE in Basel. The last module coincides with the kick off of CAP12 on May 3-4, 2018 in Basel.


All Alumni of the Capability Programs as well as Fellows and Book Champions with experience in our target countries are eligible as candidates for the MasterClass. Nathalie Moral will accompany the team as a business coach. BOOKBRIDGE Country Teams and Community Heroes act as local counterparts for the candidates. The BOOKBRIDGE Board invests in the business opportunity with no pre-fixed amount. Carsten supports as program manager and host.
