The startup idea: Making a social impact by increasing the number of successfully realized business ideas
The idea for CRINNEO was pitched by Michael on the Startup Weekend Stuttgart Social Impact 2015. The business idea is a crowd innovation and entrepreneurship platform to bring visionaries, makers and mentors together to collaborate on ideas with startup potential and find co-founders.
The teamwork: Elaborating a sustainable social business for the crowd innovation platform
Michael was joined by Andreas, Dara, Rohish and me. We have elaborated the website concept to start from (MVP) to engage innovators and entrepreneurs. We could validate the value proposition and gain sign-ups for the service. And we have developed a business model with several revenue streams to sustain the purpose.
Michael had his vision for some time and tried to include every good idea until it became very complex. But he did not know where to start. So, I contributed by facilitating and coaching to help turn the vision into a business.
The result: To be a social entrepreneur, keep your vision of the intended impact in mind, but start from what you have
Now Michael has a business and website concept to start from. Keeping his vision in mind, he can start to make the crowd innovation and entrepreneurship platform real: business ideas are realized, people use their talents and together they make a difference in the world.
