Program overview

Lighthouse MASSIV wants to help teams make and scale the highest levels of social impact through the format of long-term partnerships. By providing teams with competitive incentives and preferential access to partner resources, Lighthouse MASSIV aims to foster partnerships that will touch the lives of one billion people in the next five years. Lighthouse MASSIV is designed as a multi-stage competition. At the first stage, six companies will meet our advisory board–a hand-picked group of executives and partnership experts and accountability partners from around the world. At the first workshop, both the team and the advisory board will make commitments to one another that form the heart of our program offering. These startups will advance to workshops hosted by design, technology and legal experts picked specifically for their ability to accelerate your partnership efforts. Following this, the advisory board review each companies progress toward their commitments and select the three finalists who progressed the furthest. The winner will be the company that demonstrates the potential to impact the most people via partnership.
