Reach for Change is an international nonprofit organization with the mission to unleash the power of innovation and entrepreneurship to create a better world for children and youth.

More information:

Since their founding in 2010, they have supported more than 1,000 social entrepreneurs in 18 countries across 3 continents (Africa, Central Asia, and Europe) and impacted the lives of more than 4 million children and youth.

Their vision is to create a world where all children reach their full potential. They work to achieve this by empowering local social entrepreneurs to develop and scale innovative solutions to problems facing children and youth.

Reach for Change program covers a wide range of activities from grant funding, capacity-building, network connections, and a stamp of approval due to thorough and highly competitive search and selections. Their end goal with our support programs is that our social entrepreneur’s impact is sustainably scaled to impact a significant share of the children in their target group, thereby contributing to the SDGs for children & youth. Through local teams and locally executed programmes they are able to secure critical local knowledge for them, whilst global governance and functional teams working across the organisation ensure they capture learnings, drive continuous iteration of our program and develop our pipeline of Social Entrepreneurs.

Reach for Change achieves its vision through 3 main types of activity: direct support programs to local social entrepreneurs, ecosystem development work, and collective impact offerings.

I am an independent digital media consultant, focussing on Crowdfunding for the creative industries in Austria and Germany. I consulted more than 100 projects, wrote numerous articles on the topic and I am active as a speaker and workshop host. I am running consulting and information portal and publish a monthly Crowdfunding newsletter. Together with my colleague Karsten Wenzlaff from the Berlin based Institut für Kommunikation in Sozialen Medien (ikosom) I published “The (almost) complete guidebook to Crowdfunding for SME’s” as part of the project CrowdFundPort. During his media studies at Vienna University I worked as a film critic and journalist. I am a passionate web user and always on the hunt for the latest trends in Social Media and Digital Communication. I am also working for the CREATIVE REGION Linz & Upper Austria as project manager.
