We create open-source software to help implement Mutual Credit practices…

but we also provide essential support tailored to each group’s unique needs.

We are not a software subscription program. We partner closely with each project we work with. We bolster stable governance of the system and ensure its proper legality and best practices. We commit to collaboration, never extracting wealth from a community’s trade. Our fees are marginal, designed to simply cover our software and support services.

Our Approach

1. Audit

We work to understand the group we are partnering with--its context, its needs, and its stakeholders.

2. Design

Along with the group, we design the tools and governance structures that will help them put Mutual Credit into action.

3. Implementation

We help the initial adoption stages run smoothly, clarifying the structures and processes as needed.

4. Provisioning

We continue iterating our services according to the development of each group’s needs.

5. Research

We observe stages, needs, and trends to develop best practices and share them.

6. Networking

Established networks can partner with each other to diversify their services and achieve critical mass.

We work primarily with small businesses, social enterprise networks, municipals and accountants

But we are delighted to hear from anyone interested in mutual credit!
