We are the wemakeit team

On average, we are 38.6 years old. In total we have 13 children and are 6.236 centimetres tall. Many of us have been with wemakeit since its beginnings. And together, we are all committed each day to making wemakeit better and to helping make projects a reality.

What we do is important to us. How we do it is important to us too. New Work and Holacracy inspire our everyday life. Flat hierarchies and a transparent salary model are not buzzwords here. We work together closely even if we happen to be separated physically – unless we’re on one of our legendary retreats, but that’s another topic.

We’re constantly trying out new things and allow ourselves to make mistakes. This gives us the freedom to grow and to easily keep pace in a rapidly changing world.

When we’re not out and about on surfboards, kiteboards, snowboards, rubber boats or with vans, we’re usually sitting at desks in the south of France, Geneva, Bern, Zurich, St. Gallen, Bonn, Karlsruhe and Vienna. From there, we spend every day doing all we can to ensure the success of wemakeit projects. Sometimes we even start a project ourselves (like here, here, here, here and here). More often though, we’re busy supporting private projects. So far, we’ve helped more than 827. And more are in the pipeline!

No picture yet, but no less important:

Founders and companions

In 2012, wemakeit goes online as the first Swiss crowdfunding platform. Our declared mission: the democratisation of cultural funding. The founders and other long-time companions still support us in word and deed.

Network

Our fantastic network of organisations and freelancers help us out with everything we can’t do on our own. They’re always at hand with the right expertise.
