Tu Solución
Historia de la fundación: Comparte la historia del momento "¡Aha!", ese que inspiró al fundador a comenzar o la historia de cómo los fundadores vieron el potencial para que el proyecto tuviera éxito.

I'm very interested on sustainable ways of living. We are inside our homes a lot of hours. If we want a sustainable world, we have to change the way we live in our home, and the way our house uses energy and resources. With this idea in mind, and having already started a personal blog to share eco tips (www.micasaahorra.com), and seeing the succes of social games like The Sims, Farmville... I thought it would be a good idea give people the possibility to play with their homes and get all the information, tips, data, and everything they need to get a sustainable home. Besides, I think MEHOME could have great potential getting in other sustainable aspects live nutrition and sanitation. Once you have your MEHOME drawn, draw your life IN.

Select Sector(s): To which of Unilever's categories of sustainability does your solution apply?

Agua, Greenhouse Gases, Waste.

Measurable Impact
Audience: Who have you identified as your customers/recipients and why? How will you get your solution to them or engage them in your initiative?

The possible customers are everybody that has his own house, rented or bought. Once the bills start to arrive everybody wants to save. If you can change their ming and show them that its more than turing off the ligths, that the world of saving is gigantic, that its a million ways to get a confortable, sustainable, green ECO house, they will want to participate.

Impacto: ¿Cuál es el impacto del trabajo hasta la fecha?

The impact expected in the future is big. Not a big as another kind of super succesful social network, but at least as big as it would mean to get all the people interested in gardening, interiors, architecture, cooking, sustainability, ecohouses... all of them in the same place, playing with their homes and sharing great tips.
I think this app, webpage and social network could get a lot of people interested in saving, more so with the international crisis we are in right now.
The succes of games like The Sims, where a lot of people played to draw their own homes, and project upgrades and chages, gives the idea of the level of investment people are with their homes.

Growth, Finance & Leadership
Scaling the Solution: How do you intend to scale your activities over the next two years (e.g., reach new markets, diversify solutions, etc.)? What will make this possible?

The most important thing is to get an app where we offer people to draw their home. Then, we are going to introduce possibilities to expand the information the use can get in.
Its very important too to connect with the social network, that will grow at the same time that the app and the webpage.
The options to expand are as much as information we let users to introduce.
If we can start to let people share cooking green and sustainable dishes, we would provide an extensión for the app.
The idea is getting a main app and in the future, it this works, get more miniapps to implement to your home app.
I thins it has a great potential.

Financial Sustainability: What is your business model to ensure financial sustainability?

The financial sustainability: A lot of brands of furniture, appliances, wall paint, tiles and all the enterprises that creat of homes, They could be interesten in take part in a big model repository where they can offer their ECOproduct, Energy saving appliances, Sustainable furniture, and put the links to their online shops.
To do that thei woud have to pay as much a users click in their links, and their could get promo spots too.

Experience: Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.

For now, I´ve only started a personal blog, micasaahorra.com where I share saving tips. I am new to this, but that its why I want this so much. I think this project could be perfect to get people more aware of how their houses work and how they could be more sustainable, and in a fun a interactive way.
