What we're about
makesense is an open project built by a community of people passionate about Social Entrepreneurship, Innovation and the web. The aim of makesense is to help social entrepreneurs solve their challenges and succeed in reaching their social and/or environmental goals. In that way, we can create a better world together, by helping initiatives and social businesses that aim to have a positive impact and solve pressing social and environmental issues.
Join us and help Social Entrepreneurs take up their challenges with makesense. Choose a project you like and start working with the social entrepreneur and other wonderful people on the challenge the initiative is facing and help in creating positive impact.
Social entrepreneurs are people that pursue innovative solutions to society’s most pressing problems. Our mission is to help them develop and scale their projects by connecting them to individuals like you! makesense boosts the impact of social entrepreneurs, experts, students and other like-minded players through various events that connect the local social entrepreneurial scene.
We host SenseDrinks, meant as gatherings of people around the different aspects of social initiatives, expanding the community, and help lonely change makers surface and realize they are not alone, and there is much they can contribute, and in very simple ways.
Beside SenseDrinks, which are held monthly at each of the four hotspots in the Netherlands, we host also creativity workshops, which are called Hold-Ups. These brainstorming sessions were well designed and altered continuously by the makesense community since their inception at the end of 2009.
We also host MKS rooms, SenseCamps, and anything else that makes sense ;-)
