Idea pitch

Our generation has more opportunities than ever before and many ideas on how to shape our society. ProjectTogether is offering support for everyone, who wants to realise his ideas and start his own social initiative or social start-up.
ProjectTogether is Germany's biggest digital incubator for young social entrepreneurs. We use technology to self-empower a young generation to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals through their own projects.

Where will your idea take place?

We support people using online-tools, but also create local communities across Germany & Europe.

Why does Europe need your idea?

A strong civil society is vital to Europe. As there are increasing threats to our democracy (e.g. right-wing populism) we need social initiatives that contribute to a stable democracy. We want to support everyone who wants to start an own social project and shape our society.

What is your impact?

ProjectTogether is supporting an increasing number of projects beyond Germany - with projects in Denmark, Netherlands, Belgium, France, Italy, Austria and the United Kingdom so far.
We want to connect with partner organisations across Europe in order to reach more than 300 projects across Europe.

How do you get there?

ProjectTogether is Europes largest online-incubator for social initiatives. We are offering individual coaching for social projects via Skype or mobile phone using a large network of volunteer coaches. In addition we provide Know-How, connect to experts and other organisations in order to help the projects grow. In our online community the projects can connect with each other and create ideas together.

What is your story?

While still at school I have experienced, that many young people have great ideas on how to shape society but oftentimes don't implement them because of missing support. Having started some own projects I knew that it is actually possible to contribute to society - that's what I want to share.

Who are you doing it for?

ProjectTogether is made by and for young people. Our target group is 15 to 35 years old, with most project founders being students that want to contribute to society. We believe that it's our generation's duty to shape our own future.
