Sustainability Jam Berlin
HumanVenture attended Sustainability Jam Berlin, a weekend retreat where participants spent two days to generate ideas and prototype products for sustainable development. Our team visited a homeless shelter and interviewed the manager. It is a pity that so many decent people are left behind and could be pulled out of difficult life circumstances by offering a helping hand and psychological support. Our team prototyped a project of Mobile Shower and Coffee for homeless people to help them with some of their daily needs and give them more confidence and mood for social reintegration.

test crowdfunding via Eureeca and Enerwhere
We have been monitoring development of Eureeca for a long time, we liked that this is the one of the most international crowd-investment platform in the world. We decided to try the crowd-investment campaigns and made some small investments in their own campaign and also campaign of Enerwhere, a movable solar power project. We believe in high potential of crowdinvesting for resolution of global challenges and would be happy to cooperate with Eureeca in the future. Please check these two campaigns on Eureeca's website: https://eureeca.com/Default.aspx https://eureeca.com/Crowd-funding-pages/FrontEnd/Pitch/crowd-investment-pitch.aspx?PID=10681&lang=en https://eureeca.com/Crowd-funding-pages/FrontEnd/User/view-crowd-user.aspx?UID=43855 And if you are as well a believer in crowdfunding and crowdinvesting, then you might also find of interest WEF working group's excellent research on FinTech and in particular Section 3.6 ‘Equity Crowdfunding’ (p. 147-167): https://www.weforum.org/reports/beyond-fintech-a-pragmatic-assessment-of-disruptive-potential-in-financial-services which stipulates Social Driver and International Expansion as key factors of successful development of the sector.
