Why would you join SENSORICA?
SENSORICA is a space where individual creativity and production capacity intersects with the market know-how and resources of classical organizations. It is also an ideal platform for classical organizations to engage in the new economy.
Our global economy is in transition. Corporations are looking for new models and new economic agents seeking an access to resources. We are practically still dependent on the classical channels of value distribution. However, small companies are plugged into the old economy and have access to the mainstream value flow. Commons-based peer production is gradually emerging, but is formally incompatible with the structure of the old economy and its associated value flow systems. For example, our experience has clearly demonstrated that it is still virtually impossible to access seed funding for an open enterprise, based on open innovation and marketing open hardware. SENSORICA offers an ideal space for classical institutions and new economic agents to exchange value and co-create during this transitionary period. It constitutes a means of connecting, establishing alignment, and harmonious flow Further, reducing friction between disparate vessels during the metamorphosis from the old to the new economy.
As an individual
- Dignity: The SENSORICA value accounting system ensures that the individual retains ownership of his/her creation(s), unlike in a corporation where ownership of what is created is assigned to the corporation in exchange for a salary.
- Flexibility: The SENSORICA value accounting system allows the individual to work WHEN and as much as he/she wants to. Rewards are proportional to the value created.
- Contribution: SENSORICA provides the individual with an opportunity to materialize his/her ideas and contribute towards societal improvements by aggregating his/her capacity with that of others to successfully deliver a project.
- Empowerment: Within SENSORICA you are free to take initiative and to implement your projects.
- Ethics: SENSORICA is almost by definition ethical and operates in an environment of openness and transparency.
- Revenue: The structure of SENSORICA is NON-HIERARCHICAL and thus, all contributions are rewarded and ALL revenues are redistributed to members in proportion to their contribution. Absolutely nothing goes to Wall Street.
As a small company
- Access to know-how: SENSORICA represents an important pool of know-how in optical fiber sensing and its various applications.
- R&D: There is no requirement for up-front payment for R&D.
- Equipment: SENSORICA's internal currency allows contributors valuable access to expensive equipment.
- Collaboration: SENSORICA provides a conducive environment for collaboration.
- Risk: SENSORICA members are only rewarded once value created within the organisation is exchanged in the market. Thus, the risk of an R&D project that is executed within SENSORICA not reaching the market is shared by all SENSORICA members who participate in this project.
- Finance: Being part of an ecosystem, where risk is distributed and success is shared between collaborators, makes the financing of a business easier.
- Network: Exposure to all SENSORICA members, partners, and even clients, which include skilled individuals, research labs and small companies.
SENSORICA is a very harsh environment for thieves and freeriders. That is because of the role reputation plays within this collaborative space, and because of our contribution-based revenue system.
