How is AIM2Flourish different from other business awards?
AIM2Flourish is the world’s only global student-discovered recognition for business innovations that benefit humanity, based on a global learning platform.
AIM2Flourish is also the only initiative that uses Appreciative Inquiry and in-person, inter-generational interviewing as core to the process.
The Appreciative Inquiry interview is at the heart of AIM2Flourish. We believe that inquiry and change are a simultaneous event that transforms both parties. Relationships matter because they build social capital.
It’s easy to fill a room or a site with content. We’re creating an engagement platform that lifts up stories about business innovations to inspire others in a way that builds a community of relationships and a social capital that reverberates beyond the initial experience.
There is a magic that happens with Appreciative Inquiry (AI) interviews that can’t be replicated in any other way. It changes the participants in the conversation, and has the potential to change lives. The power of the AIM2Flourish process resides in this possibility of relationships, inspiration, and transformation that come into being in a deep, AI-based conversation.
The discovery process, the interview process, and the review create unique opportunities for students from around the world to have close contact with, learn from and be inspired by powerful local leaders who consciously design and run profitable companies that support flourishing communities and the world.
