You may want to be inspired by a societal issue that affects who is around you (or maybe yourself) and be active towards it’s addressing.
That’s why NewHopeU community wants to be a companion in your new path to justice!
Providing you with deeper knowledge or video trainings to enter the perspective of the huge positive impact that a Social Enterprise can have would not be enough to make you part of the change in your selected target.
So many young injustices advocates like you are exploring and brainstorming solutions together, in a global Tribe, so actionable models can widespread, be improved and be applied with minimum refinements on any local context!
How they do that?
They start from discussions (Ideas) around a topic they are experiencing, identifying problems through many questions and iterate until a pull of comments turns on the light in the eyes of a group of them.
So in team, they join a virtual room and discuss further, return to the main Tribe for much more specific questions or skill hunting and then reach out to present their work to the crowd.
With the approvals and last tips, they’re ready to test the model in the injustice reality they’re targeting and verify if it works.
In the meanwhile, other groups are following their journey and try their model in other context, exchanging the tips of their success.
Cooperation and sharing are the key for a more uniform growth!
How can your journey begin and be united to their?

Infallible Startup Model
It’s all about focusing on the right problem
It’s the first step and the main factor that induce failure of each unsuccessful startup.
As you can see, the Product-Market fit (no market need) is always the mayor factor, due not to a bad product but a lack of exigence of it.
Other times, it’s also affected by a bad synergy of the team working on it. Motivation, lack of skills and funding issues are key factors there.
- If you want to manifest something that challenge you, you can insert this on “Problem Phase 1 – Perceived Problem” where other people of the community express their pains and look for approvals (with a like) or comments, to know who else feel that;
- If your post receives more than 10 interactions, it can pass on the 2nd Phase, we call it “Few Awareness“, where other few people aggregate and could come up adding specific details that deepen the knowledge about that issue or increase its contexts;
- If you have an already validated problem, you can directly post it on “Externally Validated” Phase, to increase the awareness of that issue (that already have some researches done that you can share) and become the root of one or more ideas to solve it (that you can then post on Idea Phase 1 or 2;
- Once [Prob]lem posts have some interactions, that is a first validation! You can reach out with direct messages to how engage with your post if you need more data for a first survey or target analisys! So this increase dramatically the Market Need, first key step to success!
- add a new point of view as a lateral thinking;
- use them also as an attraction for potential squad members, or increase your reputation>/strong> offering your help depending on their needs
- A comment can relate to an other post to join them (paste the relative link) so to have a link during greater discussions, maybe in a dedicated group.
Prove them your commitment and they will help you even more! The entire Community wants to hear value from you and will financially support serious team works!
- It’s not that if it’s for good it has to be free, as you need funding to increase the positive impact as much as you are confident in your solution.
Iterate on that and you will expand
- If you want to publish an idea, you need to think to the end user and the entire chain to deliver it. But it requires time.Start from the best titleand description of your goals and the steps you identified (to build credibility). Then plan to reward your early adopters, as they are your Ambassadors and key validators
- If you need funds for an advocacy plan, name your post “[Advo] Title of your campaign” choosing carefully the details of your action (specific category, precise GeoTag, Phase of the issue you are shouting, ..) to catch the attention of who have relationships or contacts with similar movements or organizations that can become your sponsors
We hope you feel inspired to take action on joining or funding a new social enterprise, starting from a project you feel inspired by or propose to us all!
