Ghent, Belgium

The all-in-one platform for community engagement

Hoplr - pronounce Ā«hoplerĀ» - was founded by Jennick Scheerlinck and Jonas Heirwegh, back in 2014. An initiative that started from a common vision and conviction. In contrast to online globalization, Hoplr tells a digital, but local story. Hoplr connects people with each other and their environment.

Hoplr offers 3 solutions for community engagement:

  • Neighbourhood app: Stimulate social cohesion and circular economy through a peer-to-peer network. Communities can organize themselves by exchanging ideas, goods and services.

  • Community care: Independent living and aging in place. Easily match vulnerable citizens with your social support network within the community.

  • Public participation: Involve the silent majority by shifting the focus from the individual to the local community. Uncover community insights to make inclusive and data-driven decisions.
