for From Pubs to Hubs! Local pubs for rural economy

The number of companies offering sustainable products is growing every day. Great news! However the cost of delivery to the end-customer (the "last-mile") is often high. We address this challenge by adopting sustainable transport patterns : organising collaborative orders, in order to organise one delivery instead of 3, 5 or more. Let pool.farm help your pubs become pick-up hubs!

Future you!

The percentage of elderly people are increasing all across Europe. Building retirement homes will no longer suffice as a solution. People will live in their own homes longer and would require more help. Help your elderly neighbor will provide a solution using the local community to help with basic chores and give emotional support.

Submitted to Find & trigger hidden entrepreneurship

I propose to build an idea incubation platform, where people with complementary skills build a team, become owners of an idea and build a viable proof-of-concept. Once an idea is incubated to this stage, it can benefit from the existing business acceleration and funding solutions. My idea aims at unleashing the potential of creative projects that has been staying latent.

The aim of the project is to develop a new product/service combination and via the process make people change agents that will allow them to design future innovations themselves. The process can only be carried out when a variety of stakeholders are involved. For every pub we need to identify with the initial challenge owners who they are and what role they can play (contribution mapping will be used for that purpose).

InnoPeers

Submitted to Integration and economic independence of immigrants

I propose a peer-to-peer learning model that facilitates immigrants to learn business skills from local community members, to become economically independent. This model also encourages daily interaction of immigrants with local community members, encouraging their social integration. The model is inspired by best practices used by companies for integrating new-hires in teams.

Let the immigrants help themselves accelerate the process while providing a way for businesses to find much needed talent. This is what the TIP platform is actively trying to provide.
