A problem you want to solve. A business you want to start. A lifestyle change to make. How do you ditch the paycheque without the team, time and money to make it happen?
We love the grind of building a business. But the risk and stress that came with trading that steady paycheque for a 60+ hour work week full of meetings and deals and lawyers and investors... all for an 80% chance of failure. Not as awesome.
Only 2 out of 10 people today love their jobs while the rest of us are "surviving". The deferred cost of spending 6+ hrs a day doing something you don't enjoy is too high. We wanted to separate time and money, and enjoy every free minute of work and life.
...welcome to the club! Seventy five percent of us are "surviving" more than we are happy. Forty percent of employees want to open a business ( article ). 66% of "millennials" want to start a business ( article ). Few of us will try, and even fewer will succeed.
... just so you don't have to work 40hrs for someone else. Being an entrepreneur wasn't easy either. Long hours, no pay, and an 80% failure rate even after you find investors and raise that magic money.
People who want a simple, free and sustainable lifestyle. People who want to learn, share and work with small teams they trust to build successful ideas that generate passive income.
We share and split fixed costs (space, domains, trademarks, legal, etc.) whenever possible.
Being "fractional" doesn't mean being equal. You contribute the time and finances you can offer.
Teams have diverse skills and perspectives. Independent, critical thinking is highly valued.
It's all about small teams of pepople aligned around the same values and objectives.
We strive to find the next, best, right idea using open, transparent and scientific methods.
Everyone is an entrepreneur, a contributor, part of a team. This is not an overseas labour force.
Collectively, we look to build on the best team > idea < market fits to generate real value.
Trust makes or breaks a team, so we use tools and processes to help build and maintain it.
Simple, visual, systems and design thinking tools are being developed to make work easier.
