The Cloud Nation brings together a community of international partners who aim to create opportunities (Cloudstar Solutions) regardless of borders, and cultural or social-economic barriers.

We develop concepts and ideas that enable corporate and individual partners to get involved with distressed communities by using the technologies, tools and synergies they have created.

 

We base our doings on the collaborative belief that we are all in the same boat.

 

To promote this idea, we run offline workshops around the world in which we invite stakeholders to join forces in the development of a gameplan for the upheaval of a region.

 

To change the paradigm of the narrative linked to the refugee crisis in Europe, Startupboat created a physical hub called the Pythagoras Academy, at the birthplace of Pythagoras, 1000 meters from the Turkish border on the Greek island of Samos.

We work with international partners who help the local community on the island innovate and grow a base of knowledge in the fields of waste management, recycling, English language, financial technologies, healthcare, culinary arts, basic networking and digital skills.

Google for entrepreneurs has become a strong partner on campus to exchange knowledge and develop ideas further on the best possible ways to engage with distressed communities – especially in light of the refugee crisis in Europe, 1000 meters from the Turkish border in Europe.
