In 2010, a bunch of young people wanted to put their skills to work wherever they could help social entrepreneurs make a difference. Very quickly these citizens of the world started to connect to other citizens. They all shared the same desire to help innovative entrepreneurs solve social and environmental issues by sharing their knowledge and continuing to learn along the way. makesense was born!
And with thousands of citizens and social entrepreneurs engaged across the world to build local solutions for the most pressing issues of our times, a community was born!
The collaboration with governments, local authorities and companies was an important ingredient of the recipe. It allowed us to scale up the best solutions to have a true and significative positive impact. makesense is focusing on citizens, entrepreneurs and organisations.
The journey to increase impact.
makesense is also a worldwide community of passionate entrepreneurs. We offer them tailored support to help achieve their goals by activating our community and finding the right actors, collaborators and mentors to boost their project. We help entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs get their new projects off the ground – a laboratory that lets them kickstart, scale-up and electrify projects to the next level. We provide the space and resources to incubate, fine-tune and maximize ideas, concepts and strategies, and to make them a reality. makesense’s fast-paced workshops and events can set of new chain reactions and get things moving by blowing challenges wide open and serving up new and original solutions.
