Paloneo fosters the exchange of culture, ideas, and capital to form a more cosmopolitan and conscious global citizenship.
A cosmopolitan community committed to addressing the global challenges of the digital age.
Digital Society. Digital technologies have lowered the cost to communicate, collaborate, and form capital across the globe, enabling global cooperation at new scale. With the advance of blockchain and AI technologies, we believe the most powerful institutions of the 21st century will be impact networks, not nation-states.
Planet Earth. To prevent further ecosystem collapse, we must reform global economic systems to form a symbiotic relationship between capitalism and nature. Paloneo unites entrepreneurs, investors, policy-makers, and artists to advocate for a more conscious and sustainable lifestyle.
Cultural Resilience. The idea of a united, free, and prosperous Europe is threatened by the aggressive expansion of authoritarian regimes and ideologies. Facilitating global collaboration and the exchange of culture, ideas, and capital has never been more critical to sustain peace and prosperity across Europe and the world.
Est. 2020 – Our story
Students at the University of Cambridge and the University of St. Gallen 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, Paladins were knights known for their heroic contributions to society. Today, it translates to "a leading champion of a cause".
Today, the Paloneo community has active chapters in London, Cambridge, Zurich, Paris, Vienna, and Barcelona where members come together to share culture and ideas to form a more cosmopolitan and sustainable world.
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.
