# 1 : FROM THE IDEA TO THE IMPLEMENTATION : FORMALIZE AND STRUCTURE.
Ask yourself a couple of questions about the feasibility of your idea and its relevance.
What are you concretely going to change? How are you going to do so? Then, write things down and create the logical framework
# 2 : NETWORKING AND INSPIRATION
The networking phase is very important to start the project. It must be inspiring, and allow you to discover similar or complementary projects to yours, especially meeting people and structures which are part of the networks of social entrepreneurs. There is a lot to learn… Create collaborations can have different impacts, and be a growth lever:
– Set out your idea on a larger scale, so your partner will be an accelerator to spread your solution.
– You can create synergies of expertise, geographic coverage, network development … and potentially offer more comprehensive services.
# 3 : WRITE THE LAST VERSION OF THE PROJECT
After these different steps of analysis and thinking, you must have an idea of what you are going to do. To turn your idea into a reality, it is time to write your business plan. But what it exactly a business plan ? What should you put inside ?
# 4 : NEXT STEPS TOWARD THE REALIZATION OF YOUR PROJECT

# 5 : NEED SOME HELP ?
