    Humanity 2.0 is an ideas company that will move u to a new global system that will better suit the needs of humanity

    We’re looking for investment to get us going - see below for details

    • Our general plan

      • Build a host of services to revolutionize IT and the Internet, generating large profits in the process, and sharing them with all that invest / get involved (next 5-10 years)
      • Use the money from profits and selling shares to implement a new global socio-economic system that is self-sufficient, and can better suits the needs of humanity at large (next 30-50 years)
      • When implemented, we will be able to provide free shelter, food, education, healthcare etc. to all that need it, and fix the world’s major problems like clean energy and climate change, and much more (after 30-50 years)
    • A major step towards implementing The Venus Project

      The Venus Project is a project that has been around for a long time that has the ideals of a world essentially without national governments and that is money-free (like the Star Trek world essentially).

      This may well happen, but would not happen for some time, and is not likely in this century at least. However, what we will are going to do is to set up a transitional system, which can support the whole of humanity in a much fairer way.

      Moreover it will be flexible, and would allow the full idealistic system of The Venus Project to be implemented gradually over time - but it will be for future generations to decide about this.

    • Right now we’re looking for investment

      It’s perfectly possible for us to get going with little upfront investment, however we will be much more able to get going quicker with a relatively modest initial investment.

      Please read more about what we’re doing, and if you feel passionate about it and/or agree with us that it’s a wise investment, there are details below about how you can help us get started with our mission to change the world.

      This could be your opportunity to make the best investment of your life, and help make history in the process!
    • We’re looking to generate $10M from crowd investment :

      • We’re in the process of securing $10m investment in total in this first phase
      • We want it to come from the people, rather than from rich investment companies / business angels
      • Investors can invest as much or as little as they want (anything from $10 upwards)
    • How the shares will be distributed between those who invest :

      • The $10M will be distributed into 1% of the shares of the company
      • Those investing earlier get more shares for their money (so investing now is your best idea)
      • This would give the company an estimated value right now of $1B
      • This might sound high, but given the scope of what we’re doing, it should still appeal as a very wise invesment to many (see below)
    • Our general plan over the next 50 years :

      1. The primary investment will be used to develop Tagt, and initially we will re-invest most of the profits back into the business, to give it the best chance of success
      2. Some of the profits will be used to lend money to entrepreneurs through the micro-finance portal Kiva.org, so we can start to help people straightaway
      3. When we are generating healthy profits, some of the profits will also be paid as dividends back to our investors - as a thank you for their faith in us
      4. When we feel it is appropriate, and after having consulted with experts from all over the world about the finite details of the new global economy, we will open the private economy, so we can start to change the global socio-economic model
      5. When these first two projects are successful, generating high profits and expanding rapidly (after around 5-7 years we’re guessing), we will launch an IPO of Humanity 2.0 on the stock market (obviously share owners would then be able to sell their shares should they want to)
      6. Anticipating that the share price will increase, we will wait until an appropriate time before selling any of our shares
      7. When we believe it is a good time, we will start to sell some of our shares in a controlled, orderly way (so as not to massively devalue the share price), to start to build the HuG businesses
      8. Over many years we will develop a huge range of HuG businesses, starting with those that are easiest / cheapest to set up, and moving on to the more costly investments as the business grows
      9. As profits increase to significant levels, we will start to invest in social-development projects
      10. After the new socio-economic model really takes off, and proves itself to work well, we will start to lobby governments to lift the final restrictions of the new model (this is likely to take several decades)
      11. We anticipate that around the middle of the century we will be able to truely start to work on the list of tasks for the ISDG
    • What we think the value of the company will be worth at different points in the future :

      Obviously nothing is certain, but these are our estimates based on other companies :

      • 5-7 years - it will have the biggest IPO in history ($100M+)
      • 10-12 years - it will be worth at least $500B (this is no more than companies like Google or Facebook)
      • 15-20 years - it will be the richest company in the world, worth well over $1T (easily possible, given the range of businesses we will be setting up)
    • Other benefits of investing, besides money :

      • You will be helping your community (because some of the profits will go back into your community)
      • You will be helping us change the world, making it a better place for everyone (including yourselves and your children)
      • You will be helping to ensure the continuity of our species
    • Further things you should do before making a decision about investing :

      • Visit all our project websites
      • Read through the details of our key ideas
    • all-encompassing commandline tool

    • programming framework

    • IT tools stack

    • open-source website

    • answer engine

    • P2P alternative to WWW

    • new payment method

    • new global socio-economic model

    • A new way of programming paradigm, method and framework

      and an improved, fairer alternative to the WWW

      We are in the early stages of implementing our strategy to revolutionize the world of IT, firstly by creating a whole new paradigm, method and framework for programming

      • and then to use it to create a next-generation, peer-to-peer, collectively-managed, fully-integrated, semantic, multi-directional, socially-oriented alternative to the world-wide-web.
    • 100% integrated and customizable

      On top of this we will create tools to do anything in IT you can do now (and way more) - but in a 100% integrated and customizable way. Everything will be designed so that it is our IT systems that adapt to our needs and wants, rather than the other way round.

      Eventually, you’ll be able to control every part of any business (planning, purchasing, design, manufacturing, marketing, selling, managing, accounting…) all within one integrated system, not to mention anything in your personal life.

    • Focus on quality content and not ads

      The network itself will generally not have ugly / inappropriate / irritating ads, and global profits will be shared with those who create quality / popular content, not those who have vast numbers of ads on their pages / sites.
      Many forms of AI will be integrated into the system (especially those related to understanding / interpretation, as oppose, but very early on we shall push for pushing putting restrictions on AI for everyone -

As profits increase to significant levels, we will start to invest in social-development projects\n1. After the new socio-economic model really takes off, and proves itself to work well, we will start to lobby governments to lift the final restrictions of the new model (this is likely to take several decades)\n1.
