At N3XTCODER, we are dismantling the barriers between the impact sector and digital expertise.

That idea was born in 2016 with the vision to inspire top digital talents to work on nothing less but the best solutions for a better tomorrow.

Influenced by working closely with Nobel Peace Prize laureate Prof. Muhammad Yunus and the digital creative mindset from silicon valley, the founding team of N3XTCODER decided to dedicate their work to solving challenges that make real world change.

Digital experts along the way joined and now form the core team of N3XTCODER. Together, we are working towards this vision in an interdisciplinary mix of designers, software developers, and impact pioneers. We are a team of creative problem-solvers and we don't accept the status quo of today's world!
