We are happy to present two methodologies developed by the organization MakeSense (France), our partners in Erasmus+ project Development and promotion of social business within youth sector to promote social business and promote public awareness. We present two methodologies – Hold-up and SenseFiction.





Hold-up! is a well-directed, mentored brainstorming where participants will help a social enterprise “dig” the best ideas for the development of the business. At the beginning of the event, the idea/business/solution owners present a very specific challenge, which requires new and fresh ideas, creative solutions. Subsequently, the participants in the event make suggestions, ideas and recommendations for solving the problem. Hold-up! is a low scale event requiring one social idea/business/solution challenge, mentor and 6-20 participants – young people who represent different spheres, with different experiences and views, but who are interested in solving social problems and are open to brainstorming for about 3 hours! You can find the Hold-up manual in English here:







A SenseFiction is a creativity workshop enabling citizens to create a social business project. From 3 hours to 2 days, in groups of 4-5 people, the participants are guided by a facilitator to build their project. You can find SenseFiction manuals in English here:
