About us

Who we are, what we do


For a strong civil society

Our vision is one of a vibrant, strong civil society in which doing good and achieving social impact belong firmly together. After all, it is only by working together that the potential for society and for each individual will fully unfold.

Comprehensive information and resources should be made available to all those who wish to contribute to this social development.

Our mission


We help nonprofit organizations to better reach their goals. As a think tank, consultancy and social organization, we work to ensure that societal engagement truly achieves impact.

We are committed to ensuring that every hour of work and every euro is spent for the best possible outcome.

Our mission is supported in 4 ways:

1. We think ahead

Discover the new

Innovation is the currency of the knowledge-based society. Therefore we explore new ideas of philanthropy and impact investing. We link proven and innovative methods and ensure that new approaches can be successfully implemented.

2. We analyze

Making social impact visible

Fighting poverty, helping children, saving the environment – every day thousands of people work to make the world a better place. But what do they need to achieve an even greater social impact? – By exploring this matter, we track down big ideas and identify mechanisms behind them.

3. We advise

Help for self-help

We support everyone who wants to make a difference – nonprofit organizations, foundations, companies, ministries, individuals. We also create networks among these players. By working together, projects can be taken on that individuals would not be able to do on their own.

4. We act

With heart and mind

Implementing our own ideas is another competence that our own projects teach us. Especially through them, we learn both faster and more effectively. And when things are going well, we turn a loose idea into a groundbreaking innovation.

We are committed

What can we do for you?
