What we do

We are passionate believers in the power of the Noosphere — or how humans can fundamentally change the world around them through a combination of knowledge and technology.

Our initiatives

We have created a number of initiatives to help promote and curate the Noosphere, including partnerships with technology faculties at leading universities in Ukraine. We believe that by creating close connections between employees of tech companies, communities, and academia and leveraging this collective knowledge with robust technology platforms, we will synergistically contribute to the Noosphere.
