Our world is facing increasingly complex and interconnected challenges.

To address them, we need to go beyond the organisational structures and cultures we inherited from the industrial age. Bold companies, brave communities, networks and individuals are already venturing into the unknown and showing us that radically new ways of organising are possible and sustainable.

Our purpose is to help them succeed.

We are a home for experienced practitioners, coaches, network weavers, product builders, experimenters, space holders, alchemists...

who have joined forces to usher in a new era of organising. Born out of a shared passion for collaborative governance, budgeting and the tool Cobudget in 2017, we are rooted in an ecosystem of practice-based communities that have been exploring decentralised organising and commoning for a decade.

Today, we not only support others on their journey, but develop open source tools & products, conduct research and run experiments. We continue to grow with our people.

We embrace our interdependence to create more impact, sustainable livelihoods and joy.

Ground ourselves in practice

We only offer what we have experienced ourselves, and learn through continuous practice and experimentation.

Work with Power

We create the conditions for stepping into our collective power, by working consciously and explicitly with power dynamics.

Stay perpetually curious

We welcome contradictions and dissent, with an open mind and open heart.

Lead with (com)passion and authenticity

We care and take responsibility for ourselves, each other and the whole, to be able to safely explore our edges.
