We have parents or grandparents who immigrated into the country we grew up in.
Or we immigrated ourselves when we were young.
We grew up within at least 2 cultures.
We know the clash of cultures. We’ve been there.
Some of us struggled to find our place: Being a stranger in the countries we grew up, being a stranger in the countries of our parents and grandparents.
But we learned to appreciate what we have.
We learned to recognize how gifted we are.
We have 2 hearts.
We have 2 souls.
We have 2 cultures.
We have 2 perspectives in which we see and live the world.
We sometimes start one step behind, but we end 2 steps ahead.
We embrace our immigration backgrounds and diversity.
We have 2 hearts.
2hearts is a business community of high potentials with immigration backgrounds working in tech:
2hearts was founded on three mission pillars:
Connect with and help each other – from business to private life
Mentor and guide underprivileged, young talents
Break silos, be a beachhead between cultures, facilitate mutual integration and understanding
Guiding and coaching university students, young graduates, and about-to-start young entrepreneurs in their life, career, and entrepreneurial steps. We provide feedback during coaching sessions and offer access to our networks.
Encouraging young students and their parents by sharing our own vita and experiences with them, conveying one central message: “You need to follow your dreams and believe in yourself. There are plenty of opportunities – especially in the tech sector.”
Supporting entrepreneurs with immigration backgrounds and exceptional ideas to raise venture capital. We provide guidance for the whole fundraising process and access to the best business angels and venture funds.
Communicating and helping each other regularly via our digital 2hearts channels, meeting offline, organizing events, and mingling with a variety of founders with immigration backgrounds in a Slack channel.
