Initiated in 2012 and founded as a non-profit company (German gGmbH) in September 2013 by Stephen Kovats and Susanne Bellinghausen, r0g_agency comprises a team of open culture specialists active in locations worldwide.

In doing so the r0g_agency acts to put into practice the mechanisms of sustainable open culture methodologies using appropriate and community-based resources and technologies including Open Source (i.e. FOSS and Open Hardware), Open Educational Resources (OER), Open Data and related Open ICT4D, DIY and Up-Cycling methodologies.
We are currently developing the second prototype of the #ASKotec and can use these funds well to cover some of the expenses for materials and tools the kits contain. One #ASKotec box just made its way from Berlin to Rhino refugee settlement Camp in Uganda. Thank you all for your continued support!
