Well, there are none.
We founded this community as an "investor free zone" and we shall keep it that way. We are not waiting for the right moment to sell at a profit, there is no IPO on our agenda and what we earn goes into new international education opportunities. And: there is no third party commercial activity - no advertising and no product placement.
First and foremost we value our members' families and their specific hopes, ambitions and interests. In addition we invest a lot of time and thought into the relations we cultivate around our service - the dialogue with interested journalists, authors, scientists, experts on education and international affairs and many more. And we talk a lot to schools, teachers and pupils.
We firmly believe that there is a lot to be achieved within the many positive aspects of globalization.
And we aim at being a strong and helpful partner for families in search of their international potential(s).
”Education by cooperation” is the currency of our future, this revenue is worth more than any fast ROI an investor might expect to see. We value our unrestricted freedom of being able to think, act and react - both in terms of ethics and as entrepreneurs - as and when and how we think fit. For a true-to-his-salt Global Native this leaves no room for share holder arguments, conflicting interests of advertisers and other interferences.
We are a Community Interest Company.
We grow with our increasing number of members and provide them with first class service and awesome new ideas. The revenue goes to fund the best possible service incl. our programs Shared Mindspace, SchoolPal, basically everything under the ACTION tab and of course into research in cooperation with a number of universities!
For added clarity:
we’re neither a charity nor do we take donations; instead, we encourage participation as a PhilanthroPal from those special contributors who want to give and have no wish (or need) to take back in return. (learn more ...)
The Global Natives idea and mission is to be the
"World's Number One Arena for Families
with a Global Horizon".
