She Breaks Barriers programme - apply now!

Apply for the She Breaks Barriers programme for initiatives in Germany to take part in the programme created by adidas and Imapct Hub. The programme is designed for initiatives that support women and girls in sport. Application deadline: 7 July 2019

She Breaks Barriers is adidas’ commitment to removing the barriers standing between girls and sport. It is a series of initiatives to inspire and enable the next generation of female athletes, creators and leaders. She Breaks Barriers focuses on three pillars: Improving Access, Removing Stereotypes and Creating Visibility.

We believe that through sport we have the power to change lives and we’re calling on communities of changemakers to help highlight and tackle these issues.

To enable this change, adidas and Impact Hub have teamed up to create a programme for ventures that operate in Germany and strive to remove the challenges that girls and young women encounter on the sports pitch and in the wider world. When changemakers unite, She Breaks Barriers.

The Programme:

This three-month programme is designed to support early-stage social start-ups, non-profit organisations or initiatives that are addressing the barriers of access, gender stereotypes and visibility faced by girls in sport. It aims to inspire and enable girls and young women under the age of 25 — the age they are at particularly high risk of being systematically shut out of sport. The ventures we are looking for can address any relevant barriers and include anything from initiatives that portray strong female sports heroes to mobile apps helping girls feel safe on their way to training.

If you have a solution and you’re looking to take the next step in your entrepreneurial journey, you’ve found the right playing field!   

Changemakers selected for the programme will have the chance to:

  • Get mentoring and coaching from experienced adidas experts
  • Attend three tailored business clinics
  • Co-create with adidas & access the global network of both adidas and Impact Hub
  • Win € 15,000

Deadline for applications 7 July 2019
