Sharing is about caring…

SENStation brought our group together from all over the world and challenged us to come up with a creative idea in a very short time. They have given us extremely valuable feedback and insights, they have connected us with experts and fundraisers in the social business domain and really supported us in the process.

SENStation was extremely empowering as it brought us to realize that tackling issues in society through the set up of a social enterprise is comfortably within our reach. While it is a demanding task filled with difficulties, it can undoubtedly be achieved if there is a strong commitment. It was illuminating to start the project from scratch and to see it gradually take shape into a solid model for a social enterprise.

GSBC provided us with the opportunity to put our idea on paper and to start shaping it to the final form. We really appreciated the given time and stages to process it from the beginning. We effectively used 5 months for transforming the idea into something real. By the end of this time we received a valuable feedback which was also an important asset for the final version of the project. Thank you GSBC!
