SocialChallenges.eu is looking for entrepreneurs!

We are at a turning point of the call for solutions to the first cohort of social challenges now open online on www.socialchallenges.eu

Launched in December 2016, the Social Challenges Innovation Platform is the brand-new initiative funded by DG GROW and EASME dedicated to Social Innovation. It has been designed to exploit the untapped social innovation potential of European SMEs in addressing complex micro and macro societal challenges affecting European citizens.

30 challenges have been collected across Europe and given visibility on our platform, and we are now looking for entrepreneurial solutions able to meet these needs.

  • #Entrepreneurs
  • #Startups
  • #SMEs

We are looking for you! Apply now!

There is time till the 21st December to propose a solution online and enter the evaluation process that will result in the selection of the most promising and feasible solutions that will receive 30.000€ to develop over a 6-month period a Minimum Viable Product, in collaboration with the challenge owner and local stakeholders.

France, Portugal, Italy, Cyprus, UK, Bulgaria, Romania, Germany, Austria, Netherlands, Spain – check out the places active on the map!

Health, aging population, environment, food, education, employment, youth, social inclusion, smart cities, mobility, refugees and migration – filter your search by theme and apply for those challenges you think your solution could answer to.

In any case we recommend you to have a look to all the challenges now online; themes are not exhaustive as many challenges address different themes at once, and the geographical scope doesn’t impede entrepreneurs from other countries and regions to apply.

That’s why we have prepared a booklet briefly presenting each challenge. Check it out!

Once you spot the challenge you want to apply for, create your profile and start preparing your pitch. Here is a step by step video-guide showing you how to navigate the platform and upload your pitch (proposal).

SocialChallenges.eu aims to help those with a social challenge to reach out a wide range of potential solution providers, and at the same time to provide European entrepreneurs with a scaling up platform helping you grow your business and your social and environmental impact.

Why Becoming a partner of Maker Faire Rome – The EU Edition- V

It’s an event created to cater to curious participants, wishing to experience – first-hand – what’s next in every field.

Maker Faire Rome provides a platform to creatives, makers, fablab, SMEs, to display their art or projects and hold solid collaboration with renowned organizations.

Considering that visitors of Maker Faire Rome last year exceeded 100K, it is an apt event to promote any innovation & thus contributing both to our goal as an organization to foster the culture of innovation and to launch any Brand New Product.

Being the watchwords of the Maker Faire Rome: meeting, exchange, training, entertainment and interaction, building and strengthening our partners ‘s company brand through effective visibility is one of the key essentials in our business strategy.

For this reason, MFR partnership proposals are all “Taylor Made”.

To be effective, the partnership with MFR must serve the interest of four constituent groups:

1.        It must serve the business interest of the sponsoring company:

  •  We might offer a slot for your CEO at the Opening Conference or organise a masterclass targeting your preferred audience;

2.        It must serve the best interests of the event and its participants:

  • We might develop a co-branded “whatever” for all the exhibitors in target; organising a thematic show case or even a game;

3.        It must have a positive impact upon the sponsor’s direct consumers or prospects:

  • We might run a contest tbd together

4.        It must benefit the sponsoring company on innovation topics:

  • We might launch a specific Challenge within “The Big Hack”, the hackathon that we run, yearly, 15 days before Maker Faire Rome.
