We help Berlin-based social projects to make the most of their potential.
We are a multidisciplinary group of young fellas, part of the Global Shapers Community. We love to contribute to social projects in Berlin with our different experiences, perspectives, networks and skill sets.
We establish intense bonds with the projects we support.
We do this through two formats:
In our Shape-up sessions we meet with one organisation to explore and tackle together their most pressing problems. Kind of consulting, but without suits, powerpoints and any fees. Every two months, we host Shape-up dinners, where we connect people and organisations around a topic of shared interest.
The Global Shapers Community is a network of city-based Hubs developed and led by young leaders between 20 and 30 years old. Hubs undertake local projects to improve their communities. We are community of over 4000 Shapers, spread across 400 cities across all continents. The Global Shapers Community is one of several communities at the World Economic Forum, based in Geneva.

We are around 20 people with a broad variety of professional backgrounds: Music, Media, Film, Photography, Medicine, Mathematics, Psychology, Tech-Entrepreneurship, Law and Literature. A lot of us have founded their own organisations, so we know the challenges that you are going through when you turn an idea close to your heart into action.

This is the process:
1. You fill out a short application form (below) to signal your interest, give us an impression of where you are and where you want to go.
2. We’ll then get in touch with you.
3. If we decide to collaborate, we will meet up with your organisation, usually for a 2h long session on thursday evenings in your office (or somewhere else if you don’t happen to have one).
Über den Tellerrand
(creating a community between local Berliners and refugees through cooking classes and other engaging activities)
(a new school, bringing the benefits of an independent school to a district that could benefit the most from alternative education)
(young adults inspiring kids at schools how an immigration background doesn’t stop you from being successful)
