We are creating the mutual aid societies of the future.
To liberate people and solve social problems through innovation.
A society of self-organizing mutual aid. We believe community can’t be designed from the top down.

The Social Singualrity
Futurist Max Borders shows that humanity is already building systems that will “underthrow” great centers of power.
Social Evolution is developing a framework called Distributed Income Support Cooperatives or DISCs. This is the core technology and governance platform for mutual aid societies to self-organize and to manage their own resources.We’re building this technology using programmable incentives, which can solve problems traditionally faced by mutual aid organizations. (Read more about DISCs.)
Creating A New Model
We’re challenging corporate insurance, traditional philanthropy, and the bureaucratic welfare state by creating a new model. This model combines state-of-the-art technology with the best in institutional design, governance processes, and commons management.Everything we do will be designed to ensure that DISCs provide maximum benefit for their members. The goal? To move from mutual aid societies to a society of mutual aid. Our impact investment technologies will transform lives through community, collaboration, and care.
