My first non-profit organisation

Happy visitors on a free walk with Vienna Greeters

I started my first non-profit organisation in 2015, and it’s been an amazing ride. 

Vienna Greeters – free, personal, private walks for visitors to Vienna – has been an overwhelming and humbling success. 

I have met an incredible group of wonderful people and learned so much from them. The organisation is going from strength to strength, and we’ve just completed 1,609 greets with 4,086 guests. Wow. 

Vienna Greeters has been featured in a number of local and national newspapers, on Austrian national radio and even in the Zapier tech blog. Blush. 

Here are some numbers:

And here's a map of where our visitors come from. 

Working with Vienna Greeters has been one of the most rewarding things I’ve ever done. 

When are you coming? 


In a future post I'm going to write about how we run Vienna Greeters exclusively using online tools, including G Suite, Zapier, Trello, Cognito Forms and Trello.
