Project details

Netwookie is a professional networking tool that fights against inequality by fostering informal employment (gardening, cooking, housekeeping, nursing...), in particular of women and young people in developing countries.

There are two main challenges facing people in the informal labor market: transparency and trust. The platform, based in Kenya, puts potential customers in touch with informal-sector service providers able to fulfil specific business needs. The solution is adapted to the system’s unique requirements, providing fair and transparent rates, cost savings and improved service supply. 

  • July, 2015: Netwookie founded in Cambridge, UK
  • October, 2017: Maximilian Bock and Damian Fischer join the project as CEO and CTO
  • January 15–April 15, 2018: Participation in the Climb #01 incubation program at thecamp
