Startup "EMOTION" - how to turn participation in challenges into a business?
The world is becoming more and more immersed in digital technologies, but given the pandemic, many offline processes have been converted to online: online training, online competitions, online challenges, etc.
Online challenges, by the way, have gained particular popularity in recent years, thanks to Instagram and TikTok.
Taking this trend into account, Zhanibek, Anel, Asia, Ilona, Maxim friendly and versatile team of the startup "EMOTION", a participant of the ABC Incubation x TCA 2.0 Program, came up with the idea of how to turn participation in challenges into a business.

They created the online platform Emotion. Platform will play an important role for socialization people, because by participating in challenges, everyone can afford to have friends!

Briefly about the origin of the ideas from the founders:
"History our startup originates back from school when one of my classmates, and in the future and co-founder, decided to challenge yourself and try to do the splits in 30 days.
His aspiration was supported by other guys - so the idea of the first challenge.

Throughout the month, we did stretching and supported each other. The challenge format has proven to be an effective and very interesting way to achieve your goals.
During the year, we launched more challenges, in which the entire school has already participated.

And then it was decided to monetize this idea. The starting point was participation in the VQ Teens Startup Battle startup contest, where our project was highly appreciated by the jury and we received investment for the development of EMOTION. Now the project is something more!".

The Emotion team is a finalist of the ABC Incubation x TCA 2.0 Program, organized by NURIS Cluster with the support of Shell Kazakhstan with the Shell LiveWire Global Entrepreneurship Development Program.

We wish you success @emotion.platform and encourage you to participate in a variety of challenges together with EMOTION!
