THEY DID IT

What do the previous participants of the WE START SOCIAL say about their experience?

Founder of Hackity, social design studio, willing to bring her knowledge to people with social impact projects

Maria, Spanish
“I like WE START SOCIAL because is a fantastic event, focused on creating social impact on the society. I´m really concerned of that and I wanted to help the people and ideas of the event with my knowledge.

It has been such an inspiring experience for me: meeting people who want to change the world, collaborating with them, knowing ideas, listening to interesting talks and working with a lot of fun and great mentors.

I learned a lot, and I got very good practice for my project Hackity, coworking and collaborating with other projects. I met there very nice people with great energy to change the world, for me that is the best.”

Alice, from Marketing in a multinational to a startup with impact

Alice, French
” I was working at L’Oreal in marketing for 3 years. At the same time, I had a side entrepreneurial project : improve the quality of life of people living in Paris, bringing more social interactions. But no time at all to dedicate myself to this project. The WE START SOCIAL was the PERFECT opportunity for me to:

  1. Test the idea
  2. Work and learn from 9 wonderful talents (business, designer, web developers) on that project for 48h
  3. Test the idea on the street from potential users and re-identify the target
  4. Find out how to make money with the project
  5. Get feedbacks from amazing professionals after the final pitch !

The WE START SOCIAL was definitely the most exciting time of my last years and a turning point in my career.”
