After a number of iterations and refinements of our approach, Unexus has developed a web platform that will transform the way collective intelligence is organised and lead the rise of the semantic web. We are now looking to raise a round of seed capital to execute our mission of building the web’s infrastructure for collective intelligence.
At its core, the platform harnesses the power of collaboration to turn goals into realities and make tangible improvements in people’s lives. Goal oriented behaviour is innate in human beings, and Unexus is unique as a social media company by helping our users realise goals that are meaningful to them.
“Everyone has his own specific vocation or mission in life; everyone must carry out a concrete assignment that demands fulfillment. Therein he cannot be replaced, nor can his life be repeated, thus, everyone’s task is unique as his specific opportunity to implement it.”
- Viktor E. Frankl, Man’s Search for Meaning
Our new approach to social media not only helps people discover and define goals that are important to them; it also gives people the opportunity to contribute to other people’s goals in a meaningful way. Unexus harnesses the key trends of information overload and crowdsourcing on the web to provide solutions to our greatest challenges as individuals and as a society.
The current Unexus prototype was built using the cutting edge and widely used open source technologies, Nooku and Joomla. Johan Janssens, founder of Nooku and co-founder of Joomla, is working with Unexus’ founders, Justin Brown and Mark Bakacs, to create the next generation of the platform. Ultimately, we are doing much more than creating a social media company with the meaningful mission of promoting collaborative problem solving. Our team members are motivated by the mission of leading the rise of the semantic web by building the web’s digital infrastructure for collective intelligence. Unexus has the team and the capability to execute a revolutionary new approach to social media.
During the past 18 months we have benefited from the support of the UK Trade and Investment’s prestigious Global Entrepreneur Programme and the European Commission’s Directorate-General of Education and Culture. We also worked with a highly motivated and talented team assembled by the Erasmus Mundus Association and the Oceans Network, as well as a loyal group of early adopters helping us test many of our early assumptions about how to build the web’s next major social media company. The widespread support received at such an early stage of development has demonstrated that now is the time to execute the mission of Unexus.
We’ve come a long way through self funding Unexus’ prototype and developing our transformational approach to social media. But our audacious mission cannot be carried out alone. We’re now looking to take the execution of our mission to the next stage by raising a round of seed capital funding.
