Written by

First social networking platform to connect people by communities, events and SDG in common while traveling around the world in public transport and waiting in airports and stations. 

First networking platform to connect business people (philanthropists), third sector (NGO) and academics (volunteers)around the world.  

Our unique approach 

Connect going and coming back to an event. 

Connect with your communities in the event.

Connect by SDG in common. 

Reconnect with them all around the world.

As We connect our users according SDG in common, we work for the SDG#17: Strengthen and revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development. We have the potential to connect students (volunteers), third sector (social causes) and business travelers (philanthropists) around the world while offering a high value for each target, but we add even more when they connect to each other. We also are going to connect third sector that works in the same country or region to connect, share and increase their impact.

Differentiation

We are focused on quality networking with high purpose instead of quantity; with like-minded willing to collaborate, face to face pre scheduled meetings, no swipe, no random connections. 

Direct sustitutive services are trying to offer its services to airports with a bad usability because of reasons mentioned above. We sell to event to guarantee that our users find match in this concrete places and moments. 

What is the problem you’re solving?

Despite the high number of people in places like airports and stations there is no social interaction. We will make of this places the new Agora, places to generate global connections for cooperation, exchange knowledge and build a better future.

Despite the digital age we are currently facing, we forget how to connect with each other. Is  this due to the overuse of our mobile phones, to people being shy or simply due to the inadequacy of our existing networking tools. This lack of social interaction is being rethought in terms of co-creation spaces, cooperation, share knowledge and increase social, cultural and economical interactions around the world.

Hey Jordi Vidiella , this is MaCie' one of the facilitators here! Thank you for participating in the challenge. Networking and knowing how to communicate with people is such a valuable skill, that honestly a lot of people have lost sight of. I think this idea is a great way to connect people from multiple communities in a way to exchange ideas, learn, and gain possible life long friends. Can you further explain how this app will address Indianapolis's most pressing mobility issues? I think further thinking about the connection between your app and the mission of the challenge will help sell your idea.

Hi MaCie' Moore  I got an Opportumeety in "others" as I'm not sure about the relation. But Opportumeety aims to increase public interest for public transports (so less pollution) and integrate a solution to know all the mobility combinations available in an ecosystem. It also aims to connect people inside a community's top make them work for what matters, like local issues.
