Do you have an idea about how to improve your community?

Our MK is all about helping local people solving problems in their communities using technology or data. We are currently supporting projects with both cash and mentoring through our spaceHive movement.

Over the last two years we have been working with communities to find their ideas on how to change their communities. We gathered over 100 ideas and supported 13 of these projects to become a reality. You can find out more about the projects we have supported here.
