We bring together international organisations, Big Data providers and entrepreneurs

Big Data: Techpreneurs for good brings together hundreds of un(der)used Big Data sets of Humanitarian and International Development Organizations (I.O.s) and private organizations (eg telecommunication) with the skills, creativity, and business potential of successful technology-based startups and potential founders of start-ups. In this set of events, trainings and support program, participants - both techies and employees of I.O.s and corporations as well as entrepreneurs with disruptive ideas - will:
  • Learn of each other’s strengths, weaknesses, challenges and aspirations with regards to Big Data.
  • Ideate new business models that leverage Big Data in an economically viable way and if further developed could potentially impact hundreds of thousands live in a positive manner worldwide.
  •  Get 1-year acceleration of their projects at Impact Hub Geneva/Lausanne by experienced professionals and coaches coming from CTI, IOs, corporate world and Impact Hub network.
