we build bridges

PHINEO CEO Andreas Rickert, together with Brian Gallagher, CEO of United Way Worldwide

Since the founding of our think tank and non-profit consultancy in 2009, PHINEO built a reputation in Germany as an expert and thought leader on civic engagement with impact.

We have published 17 sector reports that examine various challenges and best practices in civic engagement efforts. With more than 20,000 copies printed, our guide to impact orientation, the “Social Impact Navigator” has become an international standard. It is available free-of-charge and has been translated into several languages.

At the heart of our work, however, is the task of bringing together actors and stakeholders from various fields. We match sponsors with effective community projects and foster cross-sectoral cooperation, always focusing on meaningful partnerships and help taking them to the next level.

From political scientists to biologists and management experts to social impact analysts, our team of 60 change-makers is as diverse as the subjects we take on every day. We are nonetheless united by our shared passion for social issues and the drive to make a difference – together. We will put together a team of experts that will help ensure your project achieves what it sets out to do.
