Innovative Character: 
Authenticitys has two main products: 1. Authenticitys is an online platform that redirects the over EUR 300 billion euro tourism industry to social businesses that have a positive social or environmental impact in the city. We will do this by two different methods: a targeted identification of social businesses of interests to tourists and conscious consumers, and experiential tours where the tourists have deeper interactions with local social entrepreneurs. 2. The Authenticitys Challenge (Education): The Authenticitys Challenge is a fast-paced entrepreneurship experience where you learn-by-doing while creating a positive change in the city you live. It is an open initiative that tackles social problems by bringing together social enterprises, students, and tourists through a human-centred, learning-by-doing methodology. The way we learn is changing: Action and experience in real-life situations are a key part of education and competency building.
