bgood is a web community designed to inspire and incentivize people to change little things in their daily lives (recycling waste, saving energy etc.) or make bigger commitments like donating blood or teaching a migrant child your mother tongue. For every task a user fulfills, she/he receives impact points (good.coins). Collected good.coins can be used to buy different rewards (e.g. movie/theatre tickets, lunch vouchers,…) or donated to different social or ecological projects. Once enough good.coins have been crowd-donated the project is financed by our sponsors/partner companies.
Our mission is to motivate people to change their behavior and switch to a sustainable lifestyle. To reach as many people as possible we aim to build bgood as a highly scalable solution that we want to scale to 31 cities in 9 countries within the next 5 years to maximize our impact.
What is the social impact of your business?
Our impact is that we unleash the impact potential of many individuals by motivating them and showing them that every action – no matter how small it is – counts and is part of the solution to problems like climate change or poverty. We do this by giving them information about what they can do and make impact tangible as we measure it for them. Last we allow our users to double their impact by investing their points in projects (e.g. reforestation, habitat conservation,..) that our sponsors will financially support once enough coins have been donated.
What do you want to achieve by being part of Impact Hub Scaling?
We are looking for local entrepreneurial minded people across European capital cities who want to bring bgood to their city. Since scaling within and outside the EU requires a lot of knowledge about scaling in general, building the optimal legal structure for an international business and finding international partners we are also looking for experienced individuals who can mentor and advise us through this process.
Please give us one interesting fact about you
We are a bunch of digital nomads who are fascinated by the endless possibilities of a connected world. Our goal is to use our technology to make impact that happens offline measurable in digital environment. As much as we love the endless possibility that technology is giving us we prefer to drink our afterwork beer on friday night offline!
