Welcome to Paloneo

Fostering a culture of impact.

Paloneo is a cosmopolitan community for impact-driven minds committed to addressing the challenges of the 21st century.

Our mission is to unite and empower leading champions across business, politics, and arts to address the global challenges of our generation:

  • Cultural Resilience. We foster cultural exchange among our members to sustain peace and prosperity across Europe and the world.
  • Digital Society. How can we leverage digital technologies to create stronger socioeconomic institutions for the 21st century?
  • Planet Earth. How can we redesign systems to create a symbiosis between capitalism and nature?

Est. 2020 – Our story 

Students at the University of Cambridge established Paloneo at a time when the pandemic and Brexit interrupted the exchange of knowledge, culture, and ideas that we consider essential to sustain the longest period of peace, cooperation, and prosperity in Europe and the world. 

Our members are cosmopolitan explorers who combine both cultural and intellectual curiosity. They connect at Paloneo events to create multi-lateral friendships and discuss impactful ideas.

Our name 'Paloneo' is derived from the word 'Paladin'. In medieval Europe, the Paladins were knights known for their heroic contributions to society. Today, it translates to "a leading champion of a cause". 

Since our foundation in Cambridge, the Paloneo community started chapters in London, Zurich, Berlin, and Paris – with plans to create a decentralized community hosting cultural and speaker events across Europe.

We welcome fellow curious and impact-driven individuals to join our private network to share knowledge, culture, and ideas at our monthly events and digital platform.
