Who are we ?
The Hack Global Goals Platform is a non-profit organization with the mission to enable and empower tech-savvy millennials, who are at the beginning of their entrepreneurship journey, with everything they need (network and consultancy services) to implement their ideas and solve important issues. We are a group of committed partners willing to contribute to this world. Our group has been created in Eindhoven, Netherlands, the “World’s most inventive city”, according to the OECD.
The Hack Global Goals (HGG) Platform aims to contribute to the Sustainable Global Goals by facilitating technological innovation both locally and internationally. On the one hand, the HGG Platform brings together professionals, inhabitants, expats, companies, foundations and neighborhoods to work on local (social) challenges. On the other hand, the HGG Platform aims to facilitate Eindhoven’s large expat community to transfer technological innovation back to their country of origin. Here the integration of knowledge between expats and the local community is used to achieve the global goals both locally and internationally.
The Hack Global Goals has chosen the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs) set by the United Nations Development Program as a framework to bring about change. De SDGs als focus on a wide range of socio-techno-economic issues such as poverty, hunger, health, education, global warming, gender equality, water, sanitation, energy, urbanization, environment and social justice.
Our aim is to collaborate with organisations, who set challenges based on these goals for our network of people to work on. We ask our partners to provide the opportunity to people/teams to pitch their ideas and provide resources (location, funds etc.) to pave the way to social entrepreneurship and the very best of the ideas.
We are believers, motivators and match-makers. We believe that each person possesses a unique potential in the grand scheme of things and that each individual can show their talents in role right for them. We also believe we are going to need to bring all of those talents together to make dent in the challenges that face today’s world.
Connecting people is what makes us passionate about Sustainable Development. Our team itself comprises of people from varied backgrounds who share the same vision of using technological innovation as a way to accelerate the SDGs. Let us do the same for you! Come work with us and ask us for the help and connections you need to bring your ideas to life.
