For the past nine years, at Edgeryders, we have been discussing some of the biggest issues facing society. It all started in 2011 when our co-founders were researching how to solve youth unemployment for a Council of Europe project.

We built an open online platform and hundreds of people shared how they were responding to the aftermath of the 2008 financial crisis. We needed a way to process all this information, so developed a methodology and some software to help us see what all of these conversations were telling us.

Since then, we have brought thousands of people from all walks of life to the Edgeryders platform to find solutions to today’s most pressing issues - from how we can provide healthcare for everyone to ways we can help fight the climate catastrophe.

An organisation that was born in a crisis, today the world is facing another unprecedented time and Edgeryders wants to help individuals and organisations navigate this new territory. Covid has dramatically impacted our lives and has changed the way that we will work forever.

While we believe that working remotely has a huge amount of benefits, we think that when done badly, it can be detrimental to individuals and organisations. Long-standing challenges that predate the current pandemic will continue to cause organisations loss of time, money and energy into the future if not remedied.

We are leveraging the 6000 people of our Edgeryders community, many of whom - including us - have huge experience of working in and organising distributed teams, to help.

Over the coming months we are drawing on 26 years of experience for a book so that leaders can build the right culture and mindset to successfully run a distributed organisation.

We are also creating a living step-by-step extensive manual on how teams can adapt to this new way of work. We are also producing a high quality online course or MOOC, to provide organisations and individuals with the necessary skill set required to implement a remote model successfully.

It won’t be an easy feat; we are launching a crowdfunding campaign to turn our vision into a reality and we need your help.

We need to cover the cost of writing, editing, designing, developing lesson plans, filming, illustrating and paying expert instructors.

If like us, you think more clarity and learning is needed surrounding distributed and remote work, then support our efforts by donating to our crowdfunding page here.

Step by step you will be able to take the wellbeing of yourself, your team and your organisation into your own hands, no matter where those hands might be localised.
