FOR THOSE WHO DARE TO DREAM BIG.
You can think of a pool as your personal board of advisors — your self-selected "PayPal Mafia" — where you all have a stake in each others' success. Members come together and commit a small portion of their income (above a pre-selected hurdle) to a shared pool. Contributions go into the pool and the funds then get divided up equally each year. So each time one of you wins, all of you win.
A CREW THAT GETS YOU.
Pursuing your dreams can be a lonely path, but with the help of a pool, it doesn’t have to be.
DIVERSIFIED ACCESS TO BIG WINS.
You'll gain a small piece of a diverse set of incredible startups – so each time one of you wins, all of you win.
REAL CHAMPIONS OF YOUR SUCCESS.
Because the group is financially aligned through pooling, they will always be in your corner when you need them.

How does pooling work?
If you earn $600K/year, you will pay into the pool 2% of $100K, or $2,000
If you earn $200K/year, you will not pay anything into the pool that year because your earnings are below the hurdle
If you have a major liquidity event & earn $100M in a year, you will pay $1.99M into the pool (2% of $99.5M) & will retain $98M

WHAT'S WITH THE 🌳?
/pandō/ noun: a grove of aspen trees with a shared underground root system
An individual aspen tree is vulnerable. It sways in the wind and draws water only from its own roots. When aspens grow together, however, their roots fuse into one shared system – distributing vital nutrients to the trees that need them most and forming the single largest living organism in the known world.
This is called a Pando.
So what does this have to do with us? Well, the nature of work is changing, and we face a new challenge. Earnings volatility – and corresponding financial uncertainty – is on the rise as the passion economy grows. Like individual aspens, we’re expected to stand alone in this uncertainty. But we don’t have to.
