Hack the Planet / Q42

I am an engineer on a mission to make a positive contribution to the world. I want to super charge high-tech efforts needed to solve big global challenges. I believe many such challenges we nowadays have can benefit from smart easy to deploy technology. Technology can and needs to be part of solving global challenges and therefore together with Q42 I created team “Hack The Planet” that aims to do exactly this. Last year I lead a hackathon team together with Greenpeace where a smart autonomous plane was developed. Since then we have a strong collaboration and are involved on several different projects with many different organizations.
