A waypoint inspired by several recent conversations. The list is work in progress. Last update: October 13th 2015, by Noemi.
Edgeryders LBG was established in May 2013 to serve the Edgeryders community. This would happen by selling consultancy services that involve the community in various ways. In return, community members would get paid opportunities to do meaningful work (by being hired to contribute to those same consultancy services); additionally, the company committed to keeping this platform online and organise the yearly Living On The Edge conferences.
ER LBG’s mode of operations was originally outlined here (2013) and later specified here (2014). The following is a list of recent acts in which the company attempted to reshare opportunities with the community.
