Project in operation: since may 2017
Location covered: Viana do Castelo
Sector: traditional gaming project - promotion of local arts and crafts
The idea of business arises with participation while monitoring a youth exchange whose theme was cultural identity and which resulted in the construction of traditional games.
The project idea is build traditional games that revive the way of playing in the old days.
Traditional games kits will be built for use outdoors or indoors, allowing interaction with intergenerational experiences. These games also allow to promote physical exercise and contact with nature.
It will be constructed in a sustainable way using traditional techniques, using local, durable and ecological materials.
This project links the memory of the older ones to the creativity of the younger ones, recreating the local craftsmanship in utilitarian objects (traditional techniques, current solutions).
The entrepreneur participated in a program to support young entrepreneurs (Empreende Já) where she had the opportunity to develop the idea of the project with the support of several professionals during 6 months and received a training grant.
So far 2 traditional game kits have been created that are to be tested with children and adults.
The materials used in the construction of the games increases the final price
In the initial moment there is no financing for more elements in the team, reason why the staff is reduced
Strong trend towards the use of digital games – change mentalities and consumption habits
Lack of funding - continues to seek funding
The planning phase and the construction of the business plan are very important.
A business project that foresaw problems and possible obstacles, which provides for resolution strategies, increases the odds of business success.
Building a rigorous business plan is imperative.
