INNO is a digital platform for youth between the age of 15-20 to assist them in connecting their interests and skills with real-life experiences offered by third-party organisations. The proposed service aims to bring the distanced stakeholders closer together and bridge a gap between the youth and their access to experience. Helping youth to find and identify their interests and providing experience opportunities gives young people more confidence in their choices and helps them to be able to make informed decisions. 

Diverse experiences and a drive for self-development will only gain value over time. Every youth deserves the opportunity for these kinds of experiences, especially in a society where experience is sometimes valued even more than education. Access to them should not have to be dependent on schools or families but requires solutions and partners from elsewhere. 

By bridging the gap between formal and non-formal education, and leveraging external experience in the academic assessment of children, INNO hopes to rethink how we encourage development and independence in youth and offer them a strong start to their futures.
