Dathappy works with GlocAllia to make DREAMS a reality


DREAMS stands for Digital, (Re)skilling and Entrepreneurship Allowing Meaningful Success

The goal is to unleash to potential of individuals:

To ensure everyone can access a sustainable employability & evolution in the Digital Economy

To create and accelerate organizations having a positive impact on the People & Planet

The concept


We are building a network of physical locations & (online) Community Hubs, all independent but supported by our core team with (content, methodology, programs, funding, coaching, mentoring and more) to identify local challenges and solve them gloCally

Looking to be part of the network?


Local innovation hubs, training centers, sustainability & social projects are on the risebut collaboration is lacking to unlock even more collective impact

That’s why we are a global network of local hubs & centers but also ecosystems builders as Entrepreneur Support Organizations (ESOs) for example.

Together we co-create a gloCal sustainable development at scale, strengthening each other local impact

Join the family if you are leveraging at least 1 pillar below to bring empowerment and sustainable development to your communities and environment:

  • Digital
    • Digital & Data literacy

    • Digital & Tech talents / experts

  • (Re)skilling
    • Transversal and Soft-skills

    • Vocational programs

  • Entrepreneurship
    • Creation of new projects

    • Acceleration of existing organizations and products

  • Socialization
    • Space to meet and share (coffee / restaurant / events)

    • Communities accessibility & engagement


We facilitate the community members’ interactions and support while we consolidate knowledge and collective intelligence for a better collaboration and bigger impact.

We help existing centers to grow their impact.
We also help individuals and teams looking to set up a new center locally with frameworks, funding, skills and knowledge, co-creation of programs and business models. 

Interested to join as an existing hub? or looking forward to create a new one in your community?

WHY WE NEED DREAMS CENTERS

COVID accelerated the Digital Divide and weakened job markets, therefore People and Organizations are struggling, particularly in regions where institutions can not help (rural areas, poorer communitites, etc.).

Empowering them to ensure they embrace the Digital Economy and an Entrepreneurship mindset to build impacting solutions and solve local challenges will open the door to a prosperous, sustainable and regenerative Economy.

The network of centers and their accessible relevant programs (remotely and physically) are created to bring a gloCal sustainable development to all, one step at a time based on local communities' needs.

HOW DO WE GENERATE POSITIVE OUTCOMES



The physical location itself is a place for collision and personal / organizational development. The accessible computers and facilitators guide everyone on the relevant path and redirect members to specific programs or tools when it is relevant.
Being set up in an environment less exposed to Digital, Reskilling opportunities and Entrepreneurship journeys, the DREAMS center ensures a first introduction and personal development along those pillars.

The programs run locally or online. They are there to help individuals and organizations to reach the next level. Always listening to the communities needs, we adapt and localize our approaches to ensure meaningful growth.

We help people to learn how to learn in a Digital Economy while supporting their experimentations and learning. Access to resources and being able to test quickly those learnings in real life is key and will shape communities' projects locally having a positive impact.

The network is a combination of centers we created and centers that were existing and joined us because we share common values and goals, each independent center can be seen as a franchise, part of a global redistribution model, and having access to the consolidated content and programs to support the local communities.
