- you have already learned design or development but would like to complete this knowledge with impact design or delivery skills?
- you are already in charge of a product or service but would like to increase their impact?
- you are a techie but would like to learn to combine your technological competencies with social, human and impact-driven approaches?
- on the contrary, you are an artistic type, a notorious creator who needs some structure for your creative soul to be able to take concrete steps to bring your creative visions to reality?

- you need a 1:1 handholding and guidance all of the time
- you want to learn about online marketing or sales (we don't touch these topics at all).
If, on the other hand:
• you care about a specific social or environmental challenge (or the future of humanity and the planet in general)
• you believe that good, honest, authentic products and services that serve and not harm their users and the rest of us are the future
• you would prefer to take a bit longer to find and develop your 'thing' but then be really proud of it, rather than rush into something you would not stand behind fully • you are not planning on launching a specific product or service (just yet), but want to gain the impact skills to boost your career and self-development,
... then this is the place for you.
• It takes you on a guided journey, from defining the challenge you want to address, understanding who the product or service is for and how it will serve them, designing a solution in an empathetic way, learning how to include impact thinking at every step of the process, to prototyping and developing a truly meaningful, desired, useful, and beautiful product or service ready to be launched.
No previous experience required. You will be provided with all the tools, templates and support you will ever need.

What do you mean by impact?
We define impact as both the short- and long-term effect the product or service has not only on its users but also on other stakeholders and the environment. Products and services that deliver positive impact are typically those that help solve some of the most pressing local or global challenges (think climate change, health issues, social cohesion problems, poverty, pollution challenges, and so many more...), while at the same time minimizing any potential negative effects.
Is Generation Limitless for Millennials, or Generations X or Z?
For all of those and more. That's why we called it Generation Limitless! The only requirements are that you know your way around a computer, have the intention to create a positive impact, and are willing to learn.
Is the course only for tech developers or tech products and services?
No, it is suitable for both high-tech and low-tech products and services, from Artificial Intelligence to organic cotton baby clothes, from apps to hand-made items. This is possible because we focus on the how and not the what of the process.
Do you need to have any product experience for this program?
No. The program has been designed in a way that makes it suitable for both beginners and relatively advanced learners. Because it focuses on the impact approaches, it will make sense for both those who have never developed a product or service before and those who have done it before but would like to widen their design and development expertise by the impact approaches, it will make sense for both those who never developed a product or service and those who have done it but would like to widen their design and development expertise by the impact component.
Can you use this course for service development?
Yes. Our main expert has a PhD in service innovation, so the course was created in such a way that most of the content is applicable to both products and services.
How is this different from Design Thinking?
The course includes the core philosophy and elements of design thinking, but it goes further than that, focusing on the impact of the design on a broader ecosystem. Moreover, it seamlessly integrates other proven approaches such as Agile Development, Lean, Impact Assessment, and Social Innovation.
What's different about Generation Limitless?
Everything :)!! Really, we have yet to come across any program that takes impact delivery to the mainstream of product and service design and development. The course is not aimed solely at social entrepreneurs. Instead, it is designed in such a way that anyone willing to integrate impact thinking in their work will learn how to do so at virtually every step of the process, from coming up with an idea to finalizing the development.
Is the course only targeted at for-profit products and services?
No. The program is great for entrepreneurs and business people but is absolutely not limited to them, simply because it does not teach how to do business (i.e., how to set up a company, market or sell your products). Instead, it teaches how to design and develop truly impactful solutions, be it in business, the public, social, or even academic domains. So both for-profit and not-for-profit products and services can be developed using this program.
Do you have a refund policy?
Yes, we have a 14-day refund policy. If it turns out Generation Limitless is not what you have been looking for, you can request a refund.
