Action project: Match my Maker by be able e.V.

Support our friends and partners to suceed in the Google Impact Challenge 2018!

be able e.V. is an association from Berlin and one of our closest collaborators in the field of Social Innovation. Their project "Match My Maker" promotes the development of everyday aids for people with disabilities.

As part of the Google Impact Challange, be able creates a digitally supported "matching and coaching model" for the collaborative and independent development of everyday aids by makers, people with disabilities and their peers. The "Match my Maker"-model will be used to create DIY products that specifically address the problems of people with disabilities. Different project teams will not only work with digital fabrication tools, but also receive personal coaching on ideation, engineering and design to get to the co-created solutions as quick as possible. It's the perfect complement to our platform-project Careables.

You can support the project here to make sure that the project gets the best funding possible.
