soheresone wants people to get to know themselves and each other through the power of unusual questions.
What started as an experimental side-project on Instagram, to improve global collective empathy, soon grew out to a movement fuelled by questions, activating beautiful answers and conversations. Breaking the boundaries of whatever ethnicity, nationality, race, identity, culture or heritage - and embrace them instead. Unique answers from diverse perspectives, uniting the world to one people and valuing the differences within.
As a next experiment, Hakim printed some questions on a set of cards and took them on a trip to Bali. Whenever he would meet new people, he started asking questions from his cards, engaging strangers in interesting conversations rather than boring small talk. With time it became clear what impact the game had on people, prompting Hakim and his school friend Ryan to produce the cards professionally. Because they needed someone, who had experience in business, Ryan asked his friend Rein to join the team. Now there were three of them. One day, Hakim was having coffee in Canggu, Bali, trying to come up with new questions for soheresone when a young couple caught his attention. He could feel that they were whispering something about him. „Weird people“, he thought and continued with his work not knowing how important this moment was, because that was the day the universe brought Daniel and Caroline into the growing team. Now there was five of them. Just for the sake of the story: Caroline and Daniel had actually been talking about him and Daniel had said: “He is working in Indesign, probably a cool guy.” He was right.

Risks and challenges
We've playtested the game, we checked the product quality and we've got everything sorted out with the production, storing, packing, handling and shipping - all from the Netherlands, all EU friendly! We also made a great deal with our supplier and they are ready to ship all Christmas pledges before Christmas! All that's left is to say "GO, GO, GO!" to our supplier, once we hit the target! The only challenge that lasts is hitting that sweet little goal on our Kickstarter campaign!Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
