digital.engagiert focuses on areas where it can have the biggest impact: to
do this, it offers personalized coaching, practical help, and a network of experts
and like-minded people. Each project is assigned a dedicated coach who provides
ongoing support to the team for six months, through in-person meetings or via video
conferencing, until their idea is realized. Participants will meet their coaches for
the first time and detail the kind of support they need at a kick-off event on May
8–9, 2020, in Berlin, Germany.
Within the digital.engagiert network, project teams can exchange ideas with
experts from technology, non-profit, and social enterprises, and establish valuable
new contacts. Additionally, the selected projects will benefit from increased
visibility across regional borders thanks to PR work and blogs.
As well as the free coaching program, participating teams receive financial
assistance in the amount of 10,000 euros per project. At the end of the coaching
period, we will evaluate the work and progress of all teams in a wrap-up event and
announce the three winning projects. These project teams will then receive prize
money of 10,000 euros each.
