Discover what it takes to launch MyMachine
Building and launching a new MyMachine franchise is complex work that requires extensive programmatic and organizational planning. New franchises often face significant start-up challenges as they work to launch, scale, and maximize impact. Emerging franchises engage with us an average of 8 to 14 months before they launch.
To launch MyMachine in your region, you need an official MyMachine franchise/license.
MyMachine is a great initiative to establish a new, unique and stimulating educational endeavour for your region or country. Check out our MyMachine in the world section to discover where MyMachine is already running. If your region or country is not yet on the map, then you know you could be the one starting it up.
Before you do, make sure you contact us. There’s several reasons for this:

You’ll get instant early stage support on how to find the right partners and budget.
You’ll join the worldwide community of MyMachine Global.
The best way for applying for a franchise/license for MyMachine in your region is to start thinking about how you would set up a pilot.
In this pilot you limit the amount of participating children, pupils and students. This will give you the advantage to learn and adapt the MyMachine methodology to your specific (educational system in your) region.
Running a MyMachine pilot means you need:
You’ll need several types of education partners:
- at least 1 (classroom of an) elementary school,
- 1 (group of) higher education student(s) from one higher education institute and
- 1 (classroom of a) technical/vocational middle- or high school.
You’ll need a MyMachine coordinator to set up all the contacts and to basically run the methodology with all involved partners.
You’ll need the necessary funding to cover
- the limited production costs for the development of the prototypes
- offline and online communication costs
- exhibition costs
- travel and accommodation costs.
You’ll need the right local partnership to lever your pilot into a future full series of MyMachine cycles: partners with power in
- the elementary school system, higher educational and the middle- and high school system in your region
- finding the necessary funding
- establishing partnerships with stakeholders, including industry and government.
