At this Startup Europe Week’s event, Beneficent wants social entrepreneurs bringing their “Idea to reality and build their community”.

How do I participate?

The answer is MakeSense Problem Solving Workshop, called Hold-Up.


Everyone is welcome to participate


Help solve the challenge of Beneficent by joining a problem solving workshop designed by MakeSense.  It uses design thinking and creativity techniques to help the participants give and share many ideas at first and turn them into 3 to 4 applicable solutions at the end.
