Create a venture

You need to be a network AFFILIATE (individual, organization, community) in order to create VENTURES. If not, join

Brows  VENTURES first, if you find one that fits your needs join it rather than creating a new one. All VENTURES are open to participation, they should not compete for similar outcomes.

If you still want to create a new VENTURE open the help document. Need more help, announce your intention on Discord and ask for someone to assist you.

Nature of VENTURES

More about ventures on the OVN wiki.

VENTURES can be: 

They are: 

All resources created in the OVN environment are shared among all VENTURES. 

VENTURES that generate tangible benefits must contribute to the OVN's infrastructure (physical and virtual) maintenance and development (see the 5% rule). 

A VENTURE is a context for a set of activities that produce resources and benefits. We can also see it as a locus of activity where AGENTS, animated by a shared goal, use resources in processes/events to produce other resources

VENTURES can have sub-VENTURES. Any VENTURE can be forked, two or more VENTURES can be remixed.

VENTURES have objectives/goals/mission, have deliverables, have a set of incentives related to the benefits that result from the resources that are created, have governance.

VENTURES have at least one CUSTODIAN and can have one or more EXCHANGE FIRMS.
