For the government, down in the gutter and out in the streets is their last mile; for us, it's our first.

What is 214 Alpha?

We provide a novel solution for community impact organizations to secure a lucrative stream of recurring revenue that roots them in their community.

What kinds of community impact organizations? Cooperatives, non-profits, churches, mutual aid networks, grassroots activists, and neighborhood groups.

Within our model, a motivated community impact organization might expect to break-even financially by nine months, and double their initial investment in a year through the introduction of a community-centric marketplace app.

What makes our app unique?

  1. Haggle b4 you buy in 1:1 chat between buyer and seller

  2. Community keeps transaction fees that normally go to eBay, Amazon, Poshmart, Etsy, etc

  3. Community votes on how these fees are reinvested back into the community

  4. No advertising allowed

  5. The only way to promote is through earned reputation

  6. Your community keeps your data

  7. We're a private-label app vendor (our customers publish the app under their name)

The 214 ALpha app

The seven things that make our marketplace (self-governance) app unique.

Example customer

Pursuance will be an app that enables individuals to organize in the pursuit of shared goals.

Individuals can form or join a “pursuance” to work toward a common goal.

Pursuances combine secure task management and discussion features, allowing newcomers to quickly get up to speed and enabling productive team-wide collaboration. Will include high-trust reporting of news and events, etc.

The strategic vision is to have an open-source platform, but Pursuance is beginning with 214 Alpha under the governance maxim "whomever mints the coin writes the rules."

Using 214 Alpha's platform, each Pursuance becomes financially self-sustainable, so they can become self-governing while ensuring their community is fed and housed.

As this system grows, 214 Alpha will work with Pursuance to launch and sustain an open source community to support the platform as it evolves.
