myBuddy is an award-winning social tech start-up founded 2021 in Mannheim. In line with our motto "grow.together.simply.“, we promote cultural togetherness with the aim of unleash the untapped potential for society and economy. With our contemporary online and offline impact portfolio for the young generation, we focus primarily on formats that are easily accessible and fun for everyone!
myBuddy is an affair of the heart for our founder Weihua Wang. Without realizing it, she laid the foundation in 2018 in her capacity as Germany’s youth delegate for the Council of Europe with a project of the same name. With a comprehensive realignment in strategy and branding, today's SocialTech start-up was launched in March 2021 in Mannheim.
Through her personal childhood immigration story, our founder knows the inner turmoil that arises when a young person searches for their own identity between two cultures. With the belief in "Magic, Love and the Good in People", she has developed the challenges on her way through tolerance and curiosity in "IT" personal and professional strengths. With the founding of myBuddy she wants to contribute to develop a contemporary self-image of Germany as a modern immigration country, so that especially the young generation can develop the cultural diversity into a common strength.
Through her numerous experiences in politics, economy and society as e.g. theyoungest former city councillor, management consultant at the Boston Consulting Group, trilingual moderator, Cartier Young Leader, board member of the Social Entrepreneurship Network Germany eV or as Miss Baden-Württemberg-she encourages the exchange not only between cultures, but also between religions, generations, professional groups and social classes, she encourages exchange and cooperation.-.
Everyone should care!
Social interaction is a topic that can only succeed together and affects everyone. That is why, despite our young founding history, we rely on three major pillars that, when considered together, release effective impact synergies.
In everyday life, we rarely manage to step out of our social bubble. That's why we offer dedicated formats to demonstrably break down prejudices.
Knowledge and reflected opinion-forming are the key to empathy, tolerance and pluralism. Using edutainment elements, we make this process playful.
Equal opportunities in job and career is not a modern buzzword. It forms the essential basis for building a sustainable society for all of us.
Cultural diversity is enriching and fun! With our formats, we want to bring this attitude to life into society.
We have already received several regional, national and international awards for the myBuddy approach to building cultural bridges.
Non-profit and independent
The work at myBuddy is state-recognized as a non-profit organization, and we also operate independently of 100% and without external investments. Instead, since it was founded in March 2021, over 5,000 hours of voluntary work by numerous Friends & Family supporters have been invested in the development of myBuddy.
