Our Why

At Communiteer, we want to use technology as a force for good to create a more equitable, humane and prosperous society. This is our why.

CEO, Victor Lee, found working within the not-for-profit space the urgent need for skilled volunteers to build capacity. Co-founder Vincent Feng knew the other side; the challenge of finding the right volunteering opportunity, matching skillset and values.

The answer is collaboration

In 2018, it all began with an idea; a one-stop-shop for businesses, not-for-profits and individuals to collaborate through digital technology.

Since January 2019, that mission has expanded rapidly. We’re entering a new age, where virtual environments are essential to transcend borders, create resource sustainability and build a sense of continuity.

We are here to connect not-for-profits with the corporate partners, people and the skills they need to make a difference while providing businesses the opportunity to venture further into the social impact space.

Our Social Impact

We use the SDGs on our platform as a universal language that aligns not-for-profit projects to the outcomes and causes they contribute to.

This makes it easier to report against social impact metrics so volunteers and businesses know exactly where their impact is going. 

At Communiteer, we indirectly contribute to all 17 through our platform, though our specific focus is on:

Connecting diverse communties, skillsets and experiences to find strength in diversity.

Make cities and communities inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable.

Revitalize the global partnership for sustainable development

We believe in a future where time is given freely, collaboration is commonplace and different experiences are recognised as a vibrant tapestry of a unified community.

Our Team

We collaborate to help others collaborate.

Our team consists of passionate people with different skillsets and cultural backgrounds, and we recognise the strength in diversity.

We are values-driven, pragmatic and determined people who practice what we preach!

We care deeply about other people, the wider community and the environment we live in.
