The fastest growing job, event and innovation platform for the purpose economy /
The Changer (now: tbd*) is Germany’s fastest growing platform and community for those seeking or developing their career in the purpose economy. For the first time ever, jobs, events, information and people in the purpose economy can be united through one central platform. The Changer provides a medium for crowdsourcing knowledge and impact and sourcing the world’s top talent. Since its launch in April 2014, The Changer has experienced impressive growth, reaching over 450.000 unique visitors and 30.000 followers on social media, as well as attracting up to 500 people each month to networking events across Germany, run by volunteers. 70% of millennials are seeking a career with purpose, but cannot find them (economist.com 2012). Typically people are not aware of the possibilities for purpose-fulfilling jobs outside of large charitable organisations. Due to this lack of information, talented professionals who would like a career with purpose stay in their current jobs. The Changer.org is building one global community of social impact professionals, by combining a jobs board with inspiring and engaging content to support students, social entrepreneurs and intrapreneurs in their impact careers.
Financing needs: To strengthen the position of The Changer in the German market as well as roll out the concept in new markets, the enterprise secured growth capital with support from FASE.
