Become our new co-founder of Berlin Zu Dir!

Deliveries of local products to your doorsteps powered by cargo bikes – all sustainably made in Berlin

Project background

Berlin Zu Dir is an online marketplace for local shops and producers from Berlin, fully powered by cargo bike deliveries and a decentralised logistics system.

Our goal is to shape the city logistics of Berlin in a fairer, more sustainable and humane fashion. At the same time, our work also helps promoting the diversity and resourcefulness of Berlin’s cityscape. The ultimate vision is, nevertheless, to establish the foundation for a pioneering, global network of online local marketplaces.

To this end, we strive to connect a wide variety of relevant actors through creative models of partnership and cooperation. With such a solid foundation, we would then be able to collectively achieve far-reaching impacts. We have already found our first partner shops and the online marketplace has been launched as well. Having said that, there are still numerous operative processes to be defined and the corresponding tasks to be coordinated. On a strategic level, there is equally a great deal of untapped potential where one could freely explore.

At the moment, the co-founder team consists of Felix (CEO with 10 years of experience in online marketplaces and social enterprises), Jakob (software developer and complex problem solver), Kilian (software developer and specialist for bulk data analysis) as well as Joachim (CMO with 15 years of experience in marketing and strategies).

As some of you might have noticed, our constellation currently only consists of males. It is exactly for this reason that we would be delighted to welcome a new female or non-binary co-founder.
