Innovative in spite of mental illness: We believe in you!

Thinkers are by no means less courageous than doers

We believe that you have the ability to create your own very personal freedom. Freedom from mental constriction as well as freedom from economic constraints. But do not worry! We do not believe you have to do it all on your own.

At the beginning of freedom there is always an idea and the courage to express this idea. Ideas like:

  • “All people are equal.”
  • “All people have creative potential.”
  • “I do not feel bad because I’m a bad person, but because I have a mental illness. And this disease may even be treatable.”

Such personally and socially groundbreaking ideas are not a sufficient guarantee that the subsequent process will be successful. However, they are a necessary ingredient – in addition to stamina and competent support in the execution.

They just need the right partners

Stamina on the other hand is what many sufferers of mental illness already need to keep up their motivation and work hard towards their recovery, despite occasional relapses. At the same time, they are often world champions at being exponential. In other words, at producing highly creative solutions in sometimes very short windows of relatively unencumbered being, the fruits of which nurture them over periods of paralysis.

We want to help them reap those fruits. For themselves and for the the sake of society. After all, those who have proven that they have the courage to be mindful and reinvent themselves can certainly contribute to reinventing a people-oriented technology and society.
