Impact: What is the impact of the work to date? Also describe the projected future impact for the coming years.
In my first year, I want to attract the youngsters and improve their entrepreneurship skills. I want to start building a powerful community in this workspace that will lead the positive change in Monastir by organizing TEDx events. This will help me promote fundamental principles for Skylight like Innovation, Collaborating, Empathy and Social Entrepreneurship which will attract eventually startup owners to work in Skylight. I started this phase by organizing my first TEDx under the theme “Dare to Change”. Through hardships and modest means I managed to put quite a show that was met with success and attendees 'admiration, who were inspired by the outstanding ideas of our speakers from different disciplines including Wafa Sayedi – CEED CEO, Bassem Bouguerra – Software Engineer at Yahoo, Raya Ben Guiza HAPAX Agency CEO. Many of these speakers will be also partners of Skylight.
Spread Strategies: Moving forward, what are the main strategies for scaling impact?
In the first year of operation, the success of Skylight Coworking Space depends essentially on two factors: leading a successful marketing campaign and organizing several TEDx events to spread this new spirit of creativity, collaboration and entrepreneurship. And helping initiate at least 10 Startups in Skylight in its first five years. In 10 years, we aim open another Coworking Space in the government next Monastir, Sousse, the second biggest city in Tunisia, and so we believe the impact of Skylight on economy will considerably raise, reaching an objective of 3-4 startups per year.
