Staff: 3


An initiative focused on accelerating the progress of “the UN Sustainable Development Goals by supporting and facilitating collaboration and partnerships between non-profit organizations, private companies, think tanks, universities, and governments.”

They are engaged in mapping the landscape of the SDG-focused organizations in Germany. The mapping along these global goals is partially done through automated tools like Natural Language Processing (NLP) and web scraping. Their technology is open-source and can be applied to other non-profit use-cases as well.

They pursue their mission in three ways:

  1. Championing the UN Sustainable Development Goals by highlighting the countless number of organizations and companies working on this global agenda
  2. Facilitating the creation of new partnerships by helping organizations find suitable collaborators through our public directory,
  3. Supporting cities and communities with analyses of their local ecosystem of SDG actors and identifying gaps and opportunities.


  • A directory of all listed organizations categorized by the relevant SDGs
  • A map displaying all listed organizations

Note: Their website is still in beta status and their tools still under development.
