The inspiration behind the idea and the name of We See comes from “Sawubona”, an African greeting.
It means “I see you, you’re important to me, and I value you”.As mentioned in Susan David’s TED talk on emotional agility,
that we all need now more than ever.

Meet our team

Our team was formed over two the Global Hack and the EuvsVirus, online hackathons designed to share and rapidly develop ideas for urgently needed solutions in the face of the current crisis, as well as to build resilience post-pandemic.

Business Development

For this business case we mapped several other initiatives to gather and possibly join forces. There are no competitors here, only allies working on the same problem and aiming for a global solution.

Financial sustainability

We believe the platform needs to be financially sustainable to scale up, and for that we believe in the social entrepreneurship power, probably on a B Corps or Yunus Social Business model.

The first question that arises is “Who is going to pay for it?. To answer it we already studied several different monetization options to fairly distribute the costs among the users, with little or none to nonprofits.

But underlying the question of “who is going to pay and how much”, is “Is this platform valuable?”. And we answer this with questioning you:

  • Would you prefer to buy a product from a company that is socially and environmentally engaged?
  • Or prefer to hire a candidate with proven volunteer experience?

If you said yes to any of these, it means that you understand and values the idea, as anything that drives behavior is valuable, making monetization possible.

It’s always good to dream big! Some of our desired features for the future:

Linkedin integration

Displaying confirmed and verified sum hours of volunteering, mentoring or pro bono

Process monetary transactions

Facilitate donations and crowdfunding inside the platform, perhaps with Stripe

Verified personal profiles

Use Veriff or some other electronic ID to tighten security and make users feel safer.

Partnership with transport

Facilitate the exchange of material goods and in-person volunteering by partnering up with Uber, Glovo, and others

Managing volunteering tools

For businesses and nonprofits.
