Each week 2 squares will automatically be unlocked, one on Mondays and another on Wednesdays, so pay attention! 

PRIZES 

• How do the medals work? 

As a FACEr, we encourage you to actively participate in the community.  Your contributions and interactions on the platform will earn you different medals (Bronze, Silver, Gold and Platinum) which in turn will help you to win prizes. 

You can earn medals for commenting, taking part in debates, checking out the squares on the game board, reply to surveys and questionnaires and even by attending the different FACE Entrepreneurship events throughout 2016.  Remember, the others in the community can rank your comments positively or negatively, which then becomes your Karma rating, and you can rate their contributions as well. 

• What prizes can I win? 

This year will are organizing different entrepreneurship events across all off Europe that are completely free to attend.  But, if you’re the most active and highest rated user in the community, we’ll pay your airfare and 1 night’s hotel stay (see Terms & Conditions) to the city of our next event.  At these events we invite important entrepreneurs from the continent who have got a lot to tell you.  What’s more, at each event a workshop will be held to help you improve your skills from restructuring costs to communication.  Sounds good, right? 

• If I win, when will I be notified? 

We will notify you at least a week in advance so you can plan your trip.  Remember, as the winner, FACE Entrepreneurship will take care of your flight as well as 1 night hotel stay during the event. 

• How will I know if I’ve earned any medals? 

On your FACEr profile you can see all of the medals you’ve earn by participating in the FACE Entrepreneurship community. 

EVENTS

Throughout 2015 and 2016 we are hosting a total of 7 offline events in the following cities: Madrid, London, Dublin, Prague, Munich, Copenhagen and Helsinki.  At each of these gatherings we will count on the expertise of entrepreneurship leaders who will share, first hand, what it’s like to be an entrepreneur, what challenges you will face and how you can overcome them. 

• How can I attend an event? 

Our events are completely free, so the only think you need to do is register on our web to reserve your spot.  However, if you’re the most active and highest rated user in the community the month prior to the event (see Terms & Conditions), we’ll provide you with the flight and 1 night’s hotel stay for the event! 

If you can’t attend our events, don’t worry!  They will be streamed live on our web so you won’t miss a thing, and after the event the recording will be available on our game board for you to check out at any time. 

What’s more, if you’ve got questions for our panelists but are unable to attend the event in person, you can send us your questions via the comment box on the event square or by Skype (enlace a cuenta).
