Enable Makeathon Movement

#enablemakeathon2

The Enable Makeathon is a unique social movement in the field of humanitarian action, disability, innovation, entrepreneurship and technology.

The aim is to crowdsource new, innovative solutions that enable people with disabilities who have specific needs that have, so far, been neglected.

The Enable Makeathon builds on a rich knowledge pillar of humanitarian action, professional skills and expertise to eradicate the exclusion of people with disabilities. We believe in diversity and set the accent in the Enable Makeathon on multidisciplinary thinking. Sharing, collaboration, and commitment lie at the heart of our endeavour. The exchange of experience is thus crucial to the Enable Makeathon and vital to address the most urgent needs of people with disabilities.

Enable Makeathon 2.0

Can Innovation be Inclusive?

The Enable Makeathon 2.0 is an intensive innovation programme that takes places from November 2017 to January 2018. We crowdsource ideas related to the key issues of accessibility and employability of people with disability.

The ultimate goal is to slingshot ideas from ideation to action in 90 days. With a focus on innovation for and by people with disability, the Enable Makeathon carries innovative ideas through the innovation chain: from ideation to co-creation, refinement, testing and incubation. This means we aim to facilitate the exchange among innovators to foster and enable innovative thinking across a broad range of disciplines to build new solutions. We accompany teams at each stage and award and assist winning teams to translate ideas into action. At the end of the 90 days, 3 winners will be awarded by an Enable Makeathon prize that allows innovators to build and scale up their ideas.
