FNDR is a platform that enables local communities, towns and cities to compete as united commercial clusters, making it easier for local residents to satisfy all their needs locally, rather than from the other side of the world. Technologically enabled use of local resources for commercial purposes means that more local jobs are preserved, less CO2 is emitted on transport and airmail, and money flows remain local, as opposed to flowing to tax-dodging behemoths that are more powerful than most governments. The FNDR platforms enables communities to take back power and enhances their ability to shape what happens to them.

Purpose

Purpose: To change the ‘plumbing’ of capitalism pertaining to local commerce. When it becomes easier to get everything you need locally, rather than from the other side of the world, areas become revitalised, more local jobs are both preserved and created, less CO2 is emitted on both transport and airmail, and money flows stay in the areas where they are generated. It is FNDR’s mission to spread our platform to as many local areas as possible, to chime with the 15-Minute City concept. London, Paris and Melbourne have already signalled their intention of developing the 15-Minute City, and FNDR wants to be the commercial platform of choice that enables this.

In short, a technologically enabled optimisation of local resources, to the benefit of the people who live in those areas.

Metrics & Targets

At least 50 cities to thrive through technologically enabled Localism by 2025. Localism is defined as the drive towards getting most of one’s needs satisfied locally, rather than on the other side of the world.
