@Rebekka thx for completing the onboarding steps. You’re approved and all set for the event on Apr 15th. You’ll get some instructions as we get closer. In the meantime if you have a proposed project in the gender equality and quality education space, you can nominate it here and get a jump on the event: Problemattic

One question: by chance are you in Paolo’s class at NovaSBE? I was there this morning presenting to his class but I noticed you don’t have his referral code so was just curious how you discovered Problemattic.

@sean No I am not in the class you are mentioning. I have discovered the event through a friend who is part of JCI :slight_smile:

Hi there,

My Name: Johanna

My Background:
I am originally from Germany and currently live in Nuremburg. In April I’m going to be in Lisbon :slight_smile:
I currently work as a Business Consulting in the Area of Change Management in a very small startup-like consulting firm. Besides this, I have a background in innovation management and workforce transformation. Starting in June, I’m going to work as a Partner Manager in a German Tech Incubator.

My Causes:
I studied Management of Social Innovation, so social causes are close to my heart. I volunteered helping international students and refugees so far. Lately, I joined an international network called JCI (in Germany WJ). I am hoping to be able to create international business partnerships there and create a better understanding among different cultures. If I’d have to pin down which cause I would like to focus on, I’d say access to education, equality, empowerment, sustainable transport and integration of immigrants.

My Motivation & Expectation:
I found the event via a community site from JCI Portugal, loved the event and the timing worked well (I’ll be in Lisbon that weekend). I am hoping to meet new incredible people, contribute with my knowledge and hope we can create a great MVP that’s going to make the world a bit better. :slight_smile:

@Johanna thanks for providing all that context and taking time to complete the onboarding steps. You’re all approved for the event on Apr 15th. Looking forward to meeting you. Lmk if you have any questions

Hello everyone!

My name is André Pires, I am Portuguese, I was born in the west coast and I live in Lisbon.

I am a Product Manager for digital products and have been a Software Engineer and Consultant before.

Causes I identify myself with are sustainability, local goods production and consumption, nature and environment preservation, forestation.

I hope to get involved into the community and give my contribute for global welfare and sustainability.
It’s also nice to be involved on a project that is not revenue driven but rather people-focused :slight_smile:

On my free time I do like to get away from amenities and concrete jungle, and head to camping or contryside and just be connected with nature.

Cheers for having me :wink:

@AndreP welcome to the community. I know you came via Eventbrite for the Apr 15th event so I went ahead and started an application for you for that. You can finish the onboarding steps here when you’re ready (takes about 5min total). Let me know if you have any questions and looking forward to meeting you on Apr 15th.

Hey People,

my name is Tim Grabe and I’m studying Impact Entrepreneurship & Innovation at the Nova SBE at the moment. Originally I’m from Hamburg in Germany and did my Bachlors in Munich but for sure have moved to Lisbon for my Masters. As I’m still studying my main profession is that I’m a student, but i could already gain some insights through my internships and working student positions as Digital Strategy Consultant, Auditor, Customer Success Manager and Recruiter.
At university I’m currently pushing forward a project dealing with the topic of responsible food consumption in terms of envirnmental footprint.
The reason why I’m here is the fact that I want to write my Masters thesis about Problemattic and want to participate in the events as a researcher.
