Humanity is creating a digital landscape. More detailed with every new day. A layer of data that helps us deal with the terrestrial challenges we face.
We’re calling all sustainability-minded coders to onboard the Mothership Missions. This is your opportunity to learn from your peers and experts. Build amazing applications with artificial intelligence and space data to save and improve life on Earth.
Choose your landscape, plant your flag.
The ‘Mothership Coder Missions’ is a dedicated open innovation program created by Space4Good, World Startup Factory and Ai Lab One. The missions have the goal of leveraging the recent advancements in artificial intelligence and satellite technologies in support of the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
Our aim is to build a community of individuals and organizations committed to helping vulnerable landscapes around the world. The Mothership community stands at the interphase of both environmental and digital landscapes. The missions aim to use the layer of data to contribute to the planetary problems that we encounter today.
World Startup Factory (WSF) supports founders in building successful ventures. WSF helps businesses, NGOs and governments to grasp the full potential of new ventures in, and outside their organisations. With over 40 investments in startups across the world, the company is now truly an international platform, with headquarters in The Hague, The Netherlands.
Space4Good is a space technology advisory and venture generator. Space4Good helps clients to understand the benefits of earth observation and geographic information systems, identify suitable solutions and develop products through crowdsourced, entrepreneurial community engagement.
AI Lab One is an artificial intelligence development and consulting company based in The Hague. They work and partner with various organizations ranging from startups to governments and from retail to healthcare. In addition to its commercial activities, the team is organizing regular workshops and trainings on Data Science topics and has built the biggest AI community in the region.
We are building a community of stakeholders, vested in these complex global challenges and that want to work as an ecosystem to undertake them. The community is always attuned to results and will have access to the insights and lessons learned within this ecosystem of coders and problem owners. We want to foster a space for knowledge exchange and agile connection.
Concept and Structure
The ‘Coder Missions’ have a structured 8-week time period during which participating teams around the globe will be supported and coached by experts to build a working prototype and supporting business model. A dual online/offline format is used, where participants can physically attend the kick-off and demo-days, whereas the rest of the program is implemented remotely via webinars and video calls. The missions are designed as an ongoing program and will be recurrently launched throughout the year.
Post Hackathon Support
For teams of coders working in a hackathon with impact or SDG-related challenges. Teams will arrive at a concept during the hackathon, but their ideas will still be raw. We provide post-hackathon mentorship on business modeling and extra prototyping to take their idea further.
A new project within a vulnerable landscape where technology and data-driven methods are necessary as additional support to the current impact or SDG initiatives .
The ‘Mothership Coder Missions’ topics all fall under the umbrella of the 17 Sustainable Development Goals. Moreover, each Mission will be paired to the direct landscape it impacts: urban, agriculture, snow, desert, ocean or forest
