If you could successfully create your own nation, who would you invite to be a part of it?
Today, I began creating my next life. I am leaving my present employer this year, in search of people who are working on issues I care about. It is not as if my co-workers don’t care. I work with social workers and community advocates. They genuinely want to make the world better for everyone.
But what would a better world for everyone look like? How would such a world function? Last year, a hundred altruistic people gathered to prototype a better world.
The result is a new nation – Hackistan.

Humanity is facing multiple challenges. Paradoxically, all resources which could help us overcome these challenges do exist. We are part of a new generation who believes that collaboration and co-creation can help solving those problems.
We believe in a new model for entrepreneurship where multidisciplinary collaboration, fairness and collective intelligence empower people and projects towards value and impact. Hackistan is a bet, an experiment with a strong purpose: a new land where talented professionals and impactful projects meet within a trust-based framework to build a new world.

In a trust-based framework, our goal is offer individuals and projects the best human, digital, financial and infrastructure existing resources – which are btw often underused-, within what we call a vertuous environment (mutualistic, redistributive).
This framework should allow these people and projects to connect more efficiently with resourceful partners (public/private actors, impact investors, Foundations, infrastructure managers).
Technically, we bootstrap this in Brussels by offering a working space, organizing open topic-wise events and private retreats for the collective members, as well as listening as much to the needs/obstacles/fears/ambitions from the people in the existing ecosystem. We aim at lifting up all fictive barriers (linguistic, disciplinary, scientific, industrial, individual) that brakes down the emergence pace of useful solutions.

Since we are overwhelmed and extremely excited during this prototyping phase in Belgium, it is hard for us not to think about bringing Hackistan one step further. If you want to join and launch an antenna in your city, you know where to find us.
