About Us

Why, How, and What We Do

Why

Our mission is to provide simple tools for people to self-organize and share resources. Our goal is to do this planet-wide, and end human-made scarcity through building a commons of access!

How

Sharing Space is a revolutionary new kind of cooperative. We're also Open Source and use Creative Commons.

We founded Sharing Space after many years of exploring the fundamentals for how to create the most ethical company possible. We hope people look at our our official bylaws and business model and follow in these footsteps… To give all a stake in the value they create for a commons.

We modified the FairShares Bylaws (with their help!) to become the first United States company (and first online company in the World) to include ALL stakeholder groups in voting and dividend profit sharing. This is a BIG milestone in how to ethically structure a company!

 

We also have licensed our code on AGPL v3 and most of our intellectual property under a Creative Commons Attribution-NonCommercial-NoDerivatives 4.0 International License. Contact us with questions. Creative Commons License
