Think of Wheelchair-Accessibility!

“All our dreams can come true, if we have the courage to pursue them.”

Raul Krauthausen gives us the solution of our first problem:  wheelchair accessibility.

He is a marketing specialist dedicated to solving social problems, and making solving social problems fun. Returning to Berlin, Raul early on dedicated his life to creating social change.

He always felt the need to empower people with impaired mobility and to get them better integrated into the German society. Having many experiences with the German welfare system himself he always wanted to give wheelchair drivers a tool at-hand that makes them more independent and brings them closer together to support each other.

Raul now fully concentrates on growing the wheelmap community.
