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 problems, which are owned but no one, can only be solved through the power of mass collaboration. Because only together, with trust and humble attitude, we can make the real-world changes.

We – people – have power

We – the people – have power, and we are the ones who can embrace the change and move this world forward. Because it is in our power to become this alternative system that will find new approaches to the complex global problems of the 21st century. 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 building this future takes everyone – from startups to governments, from regulators to legal experts, from codes and developers to artists and musicians. In other words, no one is an expert, and anyone can hold a port of the solution in 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 which is doing good for society. Because building this future takes skin as much as it takes the soul in the game. Therefore, we believe in the societal relevance of the future we create as much as we value a strong intrinsic motivation to move this world forward.
