What products or services do you offer?
Board games – I’m also currently working on an offer of fun products other than board games for next year. Mid-November, I’ll be launching an entrepreneurial consulting service.

The launch of my business was in its final stage, manufacturing the product, and it was thanks to the loan that I was able to fulfil my dream of seeing my board game hit the store shelves!

Kevin Bouchard, founder of Viviludi.

What made you decide to start your own side hustle?
Wanting to be my own boss, wanting to be able to make my own decisions, wanting to build a product from scratch. It’s incredibly rewarding to start from a blank page and see your product evolve over time! Wanting to be able to help people like me who want to start their own business, all while being able to do a job that I love. This experience even opens the doors to intrapreneurship as part of my professional experience.

How was the experience with Futurpreneur?
Really great! The support made getting started with the process very easy, they made me feel confident from the start! The mentor really helped me a lot regarding alignment and what to consider before making a decision. Even though I wanted a mentor for my one product in the first place, he was also able to guide me through the different service/product offerings I wanted to develop. This experience was very rewarding and even gave me the desire to share my knowledge through the entrepreneurial consulting service I will be launching. I also had the chance to become a mentor in my own right as part of my professional experience.
