Build Trust Through Transparency:
We strive to build a trusting, equitable and supportive relationship between us and our partners that fosters professional and personal growth for both. We aim to be transparent in our motives so our partners can hold us accountable to our vision.
Promote Diverse Thought and Experiences:
We believe that diversity in thought, background, and experience are required to advance these goals. We strive to promote this value through how we identify new teammates, how we support each other as a team, and how we identify partners we work with.
Transform Community & Economic Development:
We believe in the need to think creatively about how to build more equitable and inclusive economies. By building technology and software that directly empowers community organizers, leaders, developers, business owners, and community residents, we increase agency around community & economic development within communities. We ultimately want our tools to strengthen and support equitable and inclusive economic growth.
