Working for the good of the hood – the inaugural episode of The Gridlooks at three businesses concerned with where they are.


Contributors to the episode: 

– Andreas Förster, co-founder of FragNebenan. Based in Vienna,
Austria, FragNebenan is a social network aimed at empowering neighbours and neighbourhoods

– Carmen van der Vecht and Andres Talledo Pacheco at Rambler in Amsterdam,
The Netherlands. Rambler is a social venture and fashion brand that enables troubled street kids and school dropoutsto try their hand at fashion

The Grid is a podcast for, with and about the global community of hands-on, value-driven entrepreneurs with an eye on positive social impact and innovation. They are the bright minds that are inspiring and driving change across business, civil society, academia and government.

Together with them, we tell their stories.

Why? Because we ourselves are part of this entrepreneurial community, and one thing we have realised is that we don’t really know each other. What’s going on and who’s doing what? How did they get there and what makes them tick?

We bring bright minds together. We connect the dots on the map.

We are Milo Tesselaar (left) and Alexei Korolyov (right).

We are both members of The Impact Hub Vienna. The Grid mostly features members
of the global Impact Hub network.
