Our Team

We contribute to education, culture and environmental protection. 

Operating in a concisely structured team, through the projects supported by the Foundation we aim to accelerate the adoption of digital technologies, improve access to art and culture, and support environmental conservation.

In 1998, Hasso Plattner founded the Hasso Plattner Institute for Digital Engineering (HPI), marking his first significant philanthropic contribution. After signing the Giving Pledge (initiated by Bill Gates, Melinda French Gates and Warren Buffet), he established the Hasso Plattner Foundation in 2015. Our main office is in Potsdam (Germany), with additional offices in San Francisco (USA) and Cape Town (South Africa).
