OUR VALUES

Connect, co-create, collaborate

Odyssey is an inspiring and supportive space, which enables everyone to contribute to the solutions to complex global problems. These are shared problems, which are difficult to solve by only one party. Therefore, we need a commonized digital public infrastructure, which everyone can use and build with it.

We – people – have power

At Odyssey, we believe that we – the people – have power to embrace the change and move this world forward. Because it is in our hands to become this alternative system and find new approaches to complex global problems. Together with everyone, who wants to be part of it, we can discover the future by actually building it.

Nobody is an expert, anyone can do it

In this community, we strive for a variety, inclusivity and multi-perspectivism. Because this is a story we can only write together and we need everyone to be part of it. Here, no one is an expert and anyone can hold a part of the solution in their hands!

Be an explorer, not a judge

First and foremost, Odyssey community aims to explore the possibilities with a beginner’s mind. Therefore, we admire willingness to experiment, openness to try (and often fail!), and especially, an intrinsic curiosity to explore, without any prejudgements or assumptions.

Skin and soul in the game

Above all, Odyssey is a business community doing good for society. This community unites those who have ‘soul in the game’ and are truly committed to moving this world forward. As well as it unites those who have ‘skin in the game’ to take risks.
