The Basic Ability System
Every member of the Startupboat earns a Basic Income that is calculated based on the place of residence of a person.
The idea is that you need time to manage vital personal tasks that need to be taken care of so that you can be free to engage in individual projects. Radical self-reliance creates ability and a base of trust within the group.
We ask of Startupboat groups to organize themselves, stay willing to learn and invest time in improving their Basic Abilities in the following aspects of life.
Uplifting Society through Character
Healthcare/ Sports/ Nutrition
Inner Works / Meditation
Value of Failure/ Lifelong Learning
Support Network growth
The Basic Ability Structure enables individuals to become more creative by living a self-reliant, self-structured and self-secure life that is based on a person's belief in their own abilities. It increases productivity of the individual and asks from every person to take informed decisions for him or herself, while also playing an active part in their community.
Of course everyone can and should take part in or initiate as many projects or businesses as she or he wants - as long as the person stays reliable, delivers quality work in time and can identify with the vision and mission of the project. If this is not the case, the person can be voted out by the team.
