Would love to chat if anyone’s interested in putting together a project or joining an existing team!

We are looking for products in the following areas:

  1. Collaboration & Society , particularly in view of the current global crisis: (i) Foster better collaboration online, (ii) Grassroots collaboration around issues & emergencies, (iii) Local & neighborhood support networks, (iv) Supporting small businesses, (v) Social money-pooling for issues, people & businesses.
  2. Decentralized Web: build a new, decentralized architecture for the internet from infrastructure, communications, media & money using the blockchain and peer-to-peer technologies.
  3. Messaging & Social Networking: can we build a new way to communicate online that favors privacy, people, and users’ interests? What needs to evolve?
  4. Misinformation & Content: ideas for services that help us get beyond polarization, filter bubbles and fake news.
  5. Surveillance Capitalism: whether it’s big tech or governments, everyone’s collecting your data. How do we put the user back in control of their data?
  6. Artificial Intelligence that work to benefit communities and citizens.
