The SenseHeroe platform empowers anyone to solve the crucial issues they care about through a videogame that turns you into a social entrepreneur.
The quest of the game is to launch innovative and high-impact projects: as a gamer, discover the issue you want to tackle, get a diagnosis of what you’ve already accomplished and travel in a customized roadmap to access relevant tools, collaborative and transectors content, and support to go through the several steps of development of your startup.
Europe faces complex issues: integration of refugees, social inclusion, reducing waste, ...More and more young people have creative ideas, energy and skills to launch impactful projects to solve them.
There are tons of resources on the web to help them in this path.
However, when young people want to launch a project, they all face the same issues: how to start ? what are the 1st steps? how do I meet other persons facing the same objectives & challenges? What do I know or have already been done
The SenseHeroe platform aims at empowering aspiring european entrepreneurs to accelerate their path to develop high-impact projects towards a more responsible Europe.
In 3 years, 500 European entrepreneurs will have played the game to
- understand the issues they want to tackle
- design a meaningful project
- collaborate with multiple and diverse fields and expertises for the benefit of their project
- launch and develop step by step their high-impact start-up
