This is a group for people that are interested in meeting up to work cooperatively towards creating a startup incubator or "startup mastermind" with strategic alliances. I had created a similar meetup a year ago, but never pushed it forward full force. 

Think... a collaborative environment filled with like-minded individuals who dream of a more equal world where people live their lives with more of a purpose and sense of belonging. Instead of going down the traditional path of creating a business for the purpose of a large exit, go into business with the vision of creating a larger middle class that is part of a cooperative enterprise, offering employees more ownership and rejecting venture capital.

This will then be a path to building a slice of the internet that is more of a digital utopia, promoting education, peace and innovation.

This alliance doesn't need to be limited to technologists, I see it as the intersection of technology, humanity, art, science. It is very idealistic in thought, but the goal behind the initial meetups will be to devise and discuss a step-by-step, yet fluid roadmap that can drive us towards a common vision. Constantly iterating and executing. People that are interested in designing new paradigm shifting business models or contributing to the cause in one way or another —  If this sounds like something that excites you, please join up.
