Additional Information


  • We believe every individual has the power to make a difference.
  • We exist for one single purpose:

So that more and more people discover their own power to make good things happen.

Omidyar Network, a mission-based investment group committed to fostering individual self-empowerment on a global scale, created the tools found on in order to support its internal work of making investments. After several months of staff using the workspaces, discussions and feedback system, Omidyar Network decided to make these same tools available to anyone on the internet who agrees to follow the three ground rules of the community:

  • We are all here because we believe in making the world a better place.
  • We believe in treating each other with respect.
  • We believe everyone has something to contribute.

On July 2, 2004, the community of was born.

While Omidyar Network staff continue to use the tools to do their internal investment work, it's completely up to the members of the community to decide what to do with the tools in pursuit of their own interests.
