We Build Collaborative Systems for Change™

FuseChange is an open source and decentralized collaboration platform leveraging collective impact to solve complex social and environmental challenges. By linking projects together into Project Ecosystems we connect shared purpose, resources and enable coordinated efforts to tackle the biggest initiatives impacting our communities.

FuseChange is about doing good, being kind, and helping others create solutions to challenging problems. As an open source solution we will re-imagine the way a nonprofit operates by creating a sustainable, fully and transparent, business model.

We’re going to live by that example and build solutions that everyone can access to make the world a better place.

Working to help the global community tackle the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals at a faster rate.

  • Map out the social and environmental projects around the world, so we know Who is doing What, When, Where, Why, and How.
  • Link projects together making it easier to open up possibilities to understand how to collaborate with one another.
  • Link projects together into Project Ecosystems enabling the coordination and collaboration of complex social and environmental challenges.
  • Link projects to the resources they need quickly, to save staff time and invest more of that time into the solutions.

Sean Kvingedal

Board President - FuseChange International

I transform complex processes and ideas into over the top product solutions. My other half develops collaborative systems to help people and the environment for that last 20 years. It’s always been my goal to fully merge social good with business and do so collaboratively.

Professionally, I enjoy working in startups because it involves running on ambiguity and uncertainty. It provide me with a sense of enjoyable chaos. So my career spans across a wide range of activities that include business strategy, sales, marketing, product development and user experience design.

I have founded a SaaS social enterprise and launched a range of projects that brought diverse groups of people together solve problems. I also enjoy finding people with leadership skills and coaching them to use their talents to inspire others and do good in the world.

What makes me who I am…. I embrace diversity, like to be good and kind (to the best of my ability). It’s my mission to help people and the environment in someway.

What are your passions to help change the world?

I want to help as many people as I can utilizing technologies as an approach to increase change output.  I also want to create an organization that will define what it means to be a company of people that hold strong values to be good, kind and embrace the diversity of others.

Rob Anderson

CEO of FuseChange Australia/New Zealand

Rob’s an Innovation Consultant, Ecosystems Design Engineer, Serial Social Entrepreneur, Dad and part-time Artisan Pasta Maker. After graduating as a Chemical Engineer I spent 15 years in corporate, mainly for startups  before leaving in 2000 to startup an ambitious Social Enterprise to build a Community Networking platform. We hit the top 1500 websites on the Internet briefly. Lots of lessons learned before shutting it down in 2012 and retiring from the Internet to make artisan fresh pasta.

Have got my Social Entrepreneurship mojo back and believe Ecosystems dynamics and  open source innovation collaboration and citizen power will lead us into a new era of humanity powered by purpose. So we started our business CauseGoodThings.com, then found Sean and have rolled one of our key projects into FuseChange, the FuseGood platform. I’m now fully focused here to get the network of Hackfests up and running to disrupt solving local poverty.

What are you passionate about?
Using innovation and collaboration to build a more effective social good sector by solving the ‘wicked’ problems that affect the less fortunate locally and globally.

Areas of interest: ecosystem dynamics, innovation, social enterprise, micro-finance, renewable energy, sustainability, economics,  food and agriculture ecosystems

Danny Tekumalla

Technology - FuseChange International

I’m a geek with over 22 years of experience who is driven by new and interesting ways to leverage technology for public good.  My day job in financial services is all about using the Cloud and machine learning technologies to reduce inefficiencies and lower cost thus freeing up time to really move the needle.  An  advocate of  Richard Stallman and all things open source, I believe in the potential of the open source movement as a driver of positive change.

I hail from Hyderbad, India but have lived in the  Boston area for over 20 years.  In that time I’ve been involved with local non-profits, from food banks to health and human services organizations, volunteering my time in all things IT.
