Founder

Social networks aimed to make us more social, connected and happy in fact did more damage than good. However the right way to build a community is not yet forgotten. We have the solution!

WE ARE LOOKING FOR TALENT

The Start

Making first steps in a startup offers a unique possibility to be at the source of all major decisions, at the top of setting up the culture and business processes, at the most direct and intense communication with the visionary founders.

The Team

We are the founders: Anastasia, Olga and Konstantin. We lived and worked in Russia, Belarus, Netherlands, US, Spain, China, Indonesia and Japan, acquired international degrees and professional experience and travelled in many other countries. This opened up our eyes to different cultures and traditions in societies, and had a profound influence on our mentality. Now we all came to a conclusion that relating to other people authentically and personally is the key to happiness and fulfillment.

The Vision

But what is our vision? Ultimately, behind the 1000 steps of our startup journey, there is a goal to preserve the values that we humans were cultivating for ages. The values of creating a small community, sized by the Dunbar’s number of 150 maximum, where people personally know each other, where emotions are real and connected to the lives of others and not to some polished photos or words of strangers on social media. 

Our human biochemistry supports this community building behaviour, rewarding us with oxytocin and endorphins for every real life connection. And punishes us with cortisol and adrenaline when we distance from each other and experience loneliness.

Digitalisation of human connection has happened, there is no way back, but just as with the environmental change we have to wake up to it, stop denying the decremental effects of detachment on our health, and find a way to live as a real life community, adopting the fruits of digital revolution as smart tools which would help us progress human civilisation further and flourish on our beautiful planet, living in harmony with each other and other life forms.
