Seeking: Entrpreneurs/participants for rural rent-free work-trade incubator
Organization: Virtuous Cycle Investing
Location: Rural Nova Scotia
We are in a time of transition. Our working hypothesis is that a major component of this transition will be a change from growth-dependent economics to zero-growth or cyclical economics. The goal of Virtuous Cycle Investment is to identify and invest in tools and strategies that will remain valuable after this transition runs its course.
By creating alternatives for smart capital and talent, we hope to provide a low-friction vehicle for preserving the gains made in the industrial age as the chaotic transition to the next one takes place. Our current approach is to provide mentorship, workspace, a legal framework and co-investment opportunities to partners who believe they have a project that would align with these goals. Our current areas of research are in land transformation, self-organization and machine learning, but we are interested in all proposals.
Our innovation is a 'rural incubator' model. By pairing entrepreneurial people with rural landowners who need help with upkeep and transformation, several synergies can be accomplished. The entrepreneurial partner gets a large, rent-free space to work, free of many of the distractions common in a more cramped urban environment. By doing a few hours of manual labour each day in exchange, regular light exercise is assured and the partner is able to 'reset' between long periods of deep work. This keeps up health and prevents the 'burnout' common among trailblazers.
