Collaborative Funding

with Cobudget

MONEY MAKES COLLABORATION REAL.

To cope and thrive in today's rapidly changing environment, many organizations want to become more collaborative and human-centered. Our years of experience working in distributed networks has shown us that one of the hardest aspects of collaboration relates to money and resource management. It is also the most powerful starting point for creating engagement and participation.

Collaborative Funding

Our flagship product is Cobudget: a method and tool that makes it easy for organizations and groups to allocate funds collaboratively and transparently.

Greaterthan offers workshops, training and consulting to help organizations get started with collaborative decision-making around money. We bring with us experience, case studies and software tools to support your journey into collaborative funding and budgeting.

Authenticity & Integrity

We make an effort to understand and honor the origins of the concepts and practices we work on, while being honest with ourselves that we will always be learning.

Collaboration


We believe that change will come from people and organizations collaborating and doing business together in an ecosystem. Often that means letting go of your ego and letting everyone focus on their strengths. We are greater than the sum of our parts.

Openness


Openness means many things for us. Open communication is a fertile ground for learning and personal development. It also means keeping a balance between contributing and sharing knowledge publicly, with the commons of our ecosystem and privately.

Value Created > Value Extracted

What drives us in our work is to make a positive contribution to the world. Greaterthan is built around value creation for all stakeholders: the planet, society, our workers and our customers.

Holistic Approach

On an individual level, everyone should be able to bring their full, authentic self to what they do.  

On an organizational level, we think systemically.
