In our opinion, perfect financial transparency is a requirement with what we're trying to accomplish We commit that the entirety of our bookkeeping be completely transparent, in real time, online. This will take us a little time to complete. Please feel comfortable holding us accountable to this.
Being "open source" means that we welcome members of the community in the development of this organization. We will hold scheduled organization meetings live with public interaction, as part of our transparency as well as getting feed back from our users. Members of the community are encouraged to bring X Inc projects to their area, and when you have new ideas and strategies submit them for peer review and possible integration into the brand.

A Lab Team is a regional branch that comes together to build a better brand of capitalism in their area
We provide the tools, training, and environment for Humanitarian Entrepreneurs to excell and focus on their projects.
By joining together under a shared brand, each project, each entrepreneur is able to connect with a much larger audience. Instead of each project needing to establish its reputation in the market independently, our businesses can benefit from launching under a known and trusted name.
Besides the obvious correlation to building community, access to important tools. Offices, Meeting Rooms, High Speed Internet, Information Technology, Projectors, Computers, Design Software, Storage, Inventory Management....to name a few are all important and less expensive this way. A shared workspace also allows our tenured humanitarian entrepreneurs to provide intimate and hands on guidance.
Our entrepreneurs will receive training in many disciplines including accounting/bookkeeping, marketing, priority & time management, sales, communication, etc. Our incubator will incorporate both inside and outside training. As members of our team become proficient in new arenas they will be responsible to offer training to the rest of the team in that area. Also, we will have outside professionals come in to train our team - as well as consult on specific projects.
Maybe the most difficult aspect of starting a business is the balancing act between excelling at the core competency of your business and all the the support tasks that are necessary to run the business. Our incubator comes with a suite of small business development and support services. This means that the Humanitarian Entrepreneur can focus on the main service/product while our team helps with the bookkeeping, web development, payment processing, I.T. services. This will help our new projects take off both fast and strong..
What do start-ups need more than anything.....? Capital! As humanitarian entrepreneurs meet our standards in the arenas of commitment, personal development, business acumen, they can submit their business plan to our board for analysis and, upon approval, receive captial to help launch the next X Inc venture.
Who wants to do something crazy, like be a humanitarian entrepreneur alone? Not us! Our incubator provides the human element that is so necessary to staying committed, connected, and motivated to accomplish our mission. And on a practical note, each humanitarian entrepreneur brings a new and unique perspective and set of tools that we all need. Group brainstorming and collaborative sessions will be a regular activity at the incubator.
We see our incubator and brand being a great fit for educational and spiritual institutions. Universities and Colleges are currently clamoring for ways to offer entrepreneurship and social entrepreneurship courses and degrees. The problem they face is that the classroom and typical coursework is not the ideal setting and way to train entrepreneurs. By partnering with our incubator, a education based organization can offer exactly what their students need through their own institution - better for the students, better for the school. There are also many spiritual institutions that are seeking to venture into the economic realm for nonprofit purposes. Because all our shareholders are nonprofit organizations, our incubator provides a great partner with no conflict of interest.
Eventually, we see everything above evolving into an academy that attracts, inspires, trains, empowers, and releases humanitarian entrepreneurs to change the world
