INVITE MAX BORDERS TO SPEAK

Welcome to Social Evolution.

We are creating the mutual aid societies of the future.

Mission

To liberate people and solve social problems through innovation.

Vision

A society of self-organizing mutual aid. We believe community can’t be designed from the top down.

What kind of person thinks it’s okay not to vote? Or thinks it’s okay simply to opt out of systems they don’t like? What kind of person thinks we should use technology to erode society’s outmoded institutions?
Well, our kind of person

The Social Singualrity

Futurist Max Borders shows that humanity is already building systems that will “underthrow” great centers of power.

READ THE BOOK

Distributed Income Support Cooperatives

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.
