For two years, non-profit organisation Changers Hub has supported over 700 young adults from the suburbs of Stockholm to make their ideas come to life and to achieve their full potential. The organisation has grown rapidly and now we move into new, amazing facilities to help more young adults from the local are, but also to, for the first time ever, open Changers Hub during daytime and offer free workplaces in a co-working space. Help ut to create the best, most rewarding and coolest entrepreneurial hub in Sweden!
Changers Hub's co-working space is a place where young adults from non-privileged areas in Stockholm's urban areas can get a workplace free of charge. In addition to that, they get access to Changers Hub's other offerings, such as ideacoaching, courses and inspirational lectures. The hub will have open daytime and anyone with membership (which can be requested free of charge on Changers Hub's website) will have access to the co-working space. Now we need furniture such as chairs, desk tables, dining tables and kitchen utensils. As well as technology such as inspirational gadgets and computers. If we get enough funding, we will also paint and build a meeting room. The facilities are amazing! 350 square meters and lots of space for young people to get creative and to make all their dreams come to life.
Why this is important
Changers Hub's vision is to even out the odds and to create a more equal society where everybody, no matter background, has the same possibilities in life to succeed. In addition to Changing Hub's ability to create better conditions at an individual level, such as accessing an important network and creating jobs, Changers Hub also contributes to a better suburb by raising role models and create pride in belonging to the local area.
Goals of the crowdfunding campaign
The goal is to start renovating / furnishing summer 2017, and open the doors of September 2017 but to complete the project with the co-working space December 2017. The aim is also to accommodate more young adults and to use co-working space more than office-space; such as exhibitions, displays, work-rooms, etc.
The founders of Changers Hub has a long experience of entrepreneurship in the cultural, event and tech industries. The founders themselves are from Botkyrka and while they grew up here, they felt that good entrepreneurial initiatives were missing - and that our so called equal society is not that equal. What your name is, where you live, who your parents are makes a big difference in your chances in life. We want to change that. With a broad area of expertise, a large network and positive spirit, the team is working hard to create change in the outlying areas.
