Acceleration Week will be held from 15 to 19 October 2018. One or two participants from each of the finalist teams at the regional level will travel to Buenos Aires (Argentina) for a week of intensive training.

The Estamos Comprometidos Challenge has 3 stages: Ideation, co-creation and acceleration. During the final "Acceleration Week", the winning initiatives will learn about Prototyping, Communication, Branding, Leadership, Teamwork, Business Model, ODS and Social Impact.
