Keeping our community of MAKErs informed.

WE ARE MAKE - CREATIVE WELLBEING 

👉Updates. 

💗Soft Launch. Imperial College London hosted us for the soft-launch of MAKE. First, Melisa Lenero, founder and CEO at MAKE presented the social mission-driven company and the journey that led her to come up with the idea of combining behavioural sciences and art therapy. 

Next, a panel discussion started among Melisa, the behavioural sciences team Prof. Paul Dolan and Dr Dario Krpan and Sasha Serafimovski, our first investor and business advisor. 

Amazing thanks to everyone that joined us that night and shared their valuable insights with the team, honoured to be hosted at Imperial College London and s massive shout out to Dr Leila Sheldrick for making all these possible.

🌈New pilots in new horizons.

Make is running another pilot at the beginning of December with Colegio Banting, a Google Reference School in Mexico City. We will bring 50 programmes to Mexican teenagers to help them express how they feel in a school environment. Will keep you posted!

🎙️Our first podcast #WomenInTech

The #womenintech Podcast is hosted by WeAreLATech's Espree Devora and features inspiring Women in Tech from Engineers, Female Founders, Investors, UX and UI Designers, Journalists. All sharing their story on how they got to where they are today. The purpose of the show is for every listener to walk away feeling 'If She Can Do It So Can I'. Espree calls it "actionable empowerment".

💡Learnings

What we learned from our soft launch.

  • That MAKE proposition is fresh, novel and appealing to different audiences. (Young people, psychologists, therapists, stressed adults and older people too) 

  • Our audience finds more value on a programme scheme that contains the MAKER experience plus exclusive content developed by our behavioural science team. 

  • The attendance was gender-mixed coming from different backgrounds like doctors, lawyers, artists, investors and young people. 

🔴 MAKER box? More like a MAKER programme.

We are about translating what the science has proven to increase well-being into an everyday human language, to make it more accessible to all of us. We are about tailoring science-based programmes that will equip you with the best tools to increase, comprehend and to enhance your emotional intelligence.
