Please provide examples of any previous entrepreneurial initiatives you have pioneered.
We are the first publisher in Poland releasing engineering books about natural building, complementing national and technical libraries. We were first organisation in the country who organised big, successful crowd-funding campaign for a festival, and probably the one which did it successfully three times. There are at least 4 major spin-of organisations that emerged from our activities - national society for natural building osbn.pl, fabrication laboratory fablablodz.org, mieszadlo foundation mieszadlo.waw.pl, social natural building company Witalizacja. We pioneered natural architecture services in Poland since 2012 and practical education by organising workshops in construction sites in Build & Play project in 2014 which resulted in two building being built by amateurs. We also organise online education by connecting large audience (500 - 2000 people online) with uniquely skilled people.
At this moment we are one of the very few NGO's in Poland that are self-funding and not using national or EU grants.
Beyond your existing team, who else are you working with to achieve your objectives, eg partners, advisors, mentors?
I'm connecting with leading experts from around the world in the fields of regenerative design. Publishing their books is part of this work which creates also a great opportunity to focus attention of such a person on polish context. We have relationships with european organisation for straw bale building, Ukrainian network of hackers for energy democratisation (Energy Torrent), permaculture farms like Ridgedale in Sweden and companies around the Europe like Straw Works from UK as well as open hardware technology organisations like Open Source Ecology from US.
