Get to know us 🙂
What is makesense?
We are a vibrant global community of engaged people from all walks of life. We aim to take action on social and environmental issues by supporting social entrepreneurs and connecting them to citizens around them.
The makesense community is comprised of about 100 local chapters in cities around the world, each one led by incredible volunteer community leaders. They organize regular, open events to develop their local social enterprise ecosystems: workshops to help social entrepreneurs solve a specific challenge (“Hold-ups”), workshops to enable citizens to create newsocial businesses (“sensefictions”), inspirational talks, informal gatherings (“sensedrinks”) and many more.
Why get involved?
Our goal is to help anyone unlock their potential to take action on the causes they care about. We help people to learn, develop new skills, grow their network, launch their project…and then help them leverage all this to tackle the most pressing social and environmental issues of our time. Whether you’re looking to create an impact but not sure how or simply to connect with like-minded people, you’re in the right place!
