Products

Cohere

Cohere is a member-owned network of coliving communities designed to foster co-creation of impact innovations.
Cohere provides spaces that empower innovators to create regenerative solutions that enable a new way of living. If people do not have a means to offer their genius towards a unified vision, they will lose faith in themselves, the world, and the possibility of fulfilling their purpose. By providing access to abundant resources, supportive community and a collaborative environment, we empower innovators to birth a new collective reality.

Immersive Impact Incubators (I3s)

See “co:lab” below.

co:lab

Co:labs are monthlong immersive impact incubators that are designed to assemble a group of highly-curated thought leaders with the intention of solving a predefined problem with actionable solutions.
We created co:labs to curate the changemakers and rebels who are committed to shaping the future. Unless humanity unites towards a collective vision, our planet will no longer support thriving life. By providing incubation spaces for audacious innovations to be birthed, we create the conditions to reimagine and rebuild the way we live, work and thrive together.

Member Portal

In its current iteration, the member portal refers to our white-labeled Circle platform that serves as the virtual meeting place for Cohere members. The functions of this platform include: social feeds, direct messaging, group chat, events, knowledgebase, resources, media, affiliate marketplace (non-native), and paywalling. Over time, this portal will integrate proposals, voting, treasury, etc., centralizing the functionality of the DAO into a unified platform.

OpenIP

An opensource framework, similar to Creative Commons, that allows intellectual property to be licensed in whole or part, as specified by the IP holder, who could elect to receive tokenized compensation.

Media Hub

Hank and bRoBoT (don’t) save the world!

Resource Library

A database and composite of all the information and innovation created within the ecosystem. All bioregional DAOs and their physical counter-parts develop methods and best practices that are uploaded to the resource library and can be used by any member at any time for educational, research, or training material.

Tech Hub

The physical representation will be a full service maker space paired with experts in various fields to innovate on revolutionary new technologies. These innovations can be immediately implemented in the decentralized network for prototyping and localized testing. Feedback and iterations can be directed through the OpenIP and Resource Library to further enhance the new technology or adjust it for specific conditions.

Apprenticeship Program

This is a decentralized training program tied to ‘Gaia Game’ and allows people to get real world experience in various skills. The training completed in the apprenticeship program will be recorded on the blockchain through the member’s unique NFT and will represent the specific, qualified skills the member has developed in the system.

Nodes

Ilian

The multi-cultural, borderless nation-state of which we are all global citizens.

Bright Bridge Network (BBN)

Bright Bridge is a research and development company focused on systemic solutions that transition humanity from individual ownership to collective stewardship. If people continue to compete for finite resources, our planet will no longer support thriving life. By providing the economic incentive to live in right relations with the earth, we create a more equitable world that is in service to all life, while leaving a legacy that ripples across generations to come.

Sharespace

for impact innovations.

Nascent

An early-stage accelerator and fund for impact innovations.

Cofunder

An equity-based crowdfunding platform that leverages the equitable economic model developed by BBN to provide investors of all socioeconomic status a means to support projects and organizations that are aligned with their values and objectives. This would serve as a community fundraising vehicle for Doable projects.

Torus

Similar to a DAF, Torus is a Member-Directed Fund that creates a toroidal flow of resources through the use of the Rolling SAFE, security tokens, collective ownership and integrated revenue streams. Investment enters the Torus in exchange for security tokens from the specific organization using the torus. Invested capital goes towards producing revenue streams of which some profits are directed back into the Torus. Security token holders can exchange their security tokens based on the current market value for the liquidity held by Torus from the profits generated. The Torus can sell more security tokens for additional investment or use the profits to buy already existing security tokens in the marketplace. The sale of the security tokens leads to a further increase in capital allowing for continuous development of revenue streams and repeating the cycle of exchange over again.

Legacy Forest

With a commitment to the reclamation and remediation of degraded lands, provides a regenerative solution to the ecological impact of our current burial practices. Our regenerative burial model honors the cycle of life by uniting our remains with the earth and planting a tree as a memorial, leaving a legacy to benefit many generations to come.

Keepsake

Keepsake, a compliment to Legacy Forest, leaves a living imprint after our passing. Utilizing the latest in augmented reality, voice mimicry and holographic technology, our likeness can live on in perpetuity and tell our story long after we’re gone. It also serves as a digital repository that becomes accessible using a shared key and confirmation of death records for next of kin to access digital records and sensitive information.

Gaia Game

A multi-dimensional immersive experience that trains members in skills supportive for a new way of living. Communities will need everything from builders and architects, to first-aid care and wellness practitioners, to welders and permaculturalists. Many of these skills are not commonplace amongst people that desire to live in a Game B system. In order to source the necessary skillsets, talents and mastery we can offer training to members through a variety of skill trees. Each tree is developed and managed by resident experts and masters of that field. An hybrid online/irl educational platform will host all the available skills and educational material to support it. The Gaia Game will pair with the apprenticeship program to give trainees real world, hands-on experience developing that skill. This platform will be paired with VR/AR and Multiplayer engine so people can interact with other players virtually. The VR/AR will be in real time expression of the physical locations contained by the decentralized global network.
