We have been providing consulting services to social and non-governmental organization in the area of Hamburg since 2015. Our work has helped the following organizations:

A Glimpse of Our Work

Bridge&Tunnel

Founded in 2013 by Constanze Klotz and Hanna Charlotte Erhorn, Bridge&Tunnel is a sustainable fashion and interior design label from Hamburg. They produce socially sustainable denim products by employing socially disadvantaged people such as long-term unemployed people and refugees. To reduce their ecological footprint, all their products are made out of post- and pre-consumer waste which leads to a series of unique interior, fashion, and accessories designs. Our consulting services contained recommendations in the fields of marketing, finance, and sales.

EBC Hochschule

EBC Hochschule has identified a major problem in the integration of refugees into academic education. For some time, refugees have arrived in Hamburg who desire to start of continue their studies but are forced to wait because they do not get accepted at an appropriate institution. In most cases, refugees do not have a sufficient level in German which is a main entry barrier for public universities. Private universities like EBC offer English speaking programs but are usually fairly expensive. EBC is motivated to contribute to solve this societal dilemma by establishing a scholarship program for refugees that enables them to start of continue their academic education shortly after the arrival in Germany. Our consultants developed a concept for the structure and the funding of that program. Among other aspects, it included the collaboration with business partners of EBC and the refugee community in Hamburg.

Joblinge

The vision of the Joblinge initiative is to make a visible and sustainable contribution to the fight against youth unemployment. In Germany, 500.000 youths do not find jobs or apprenticeship positions even though skilled workers are lacking and many positions go unfilled. The objective of Joblinge is to provide disadvantaged, unemployed youth the opportunity to earn a long term placement in an apprenticeship or job and thus lead a self-determined life. The project focused on communication and workflow optimization, and knowledge transfer. A report was delivered by our team which focused on communication problems, which amplify the other surface issues - a set of recommendations and solutions were also provided.

LeetHub

LeetHub is a coworking space, a meeting point and a hub for refugees in Hamburg. Their main goal is being an interface for topics like integration and social participation. Through their different projects they try to positively contribute to open culture of Hamburg. As they believe that people are able to reach their goals on their own, their main projects include empowering people with migration background. LeetHub would like to continue organizing entrepreneurship incubators for refugees and help them to start their own business. They have a lot of creative ideas, necessary know-how and the supportive infrastructure. However, they are still searching for the possibilities of stable fund streams for their projects. Our consultants provided a plan to become more sustainable by focusing on different forms of partnerhips LeetHub can develop to become self-sustainable on long-term and become more inclusive with all its stakeholders.
