The world is more connected than ever, but there’s a disconnect in solving global challenges. 

There are millions of solutions and initiatives, but no infrastructure and no clear overview of them.

 

We are building Acter to enable initiatives and solutions to scale and change the world.

ACTER'S VISION

Enabling anyone to take action towards a world
that works for
everyone.

Today, we’re proud to be partnering with some of the world’s fastest-growing organisations. Helping them empower their teams across the globe to realize their full potential and change the world together.

BOTTOM UP APPROACH

We want to make mass participation easier and add more power to people pushing for change.

Humans are the foundation

In Acter we build digital tools to support humans. Our design is human-centered and
non-addictive. 

 

We base our work on needs not assumptions and spend time with users and their work.

Purpose over profit, always

We do not build Acter to create profit, we create profit to build Acter.​​ Our human values goes before finances and we do not sell user data. We do not advertise. We do not sell business shares.

We are an ecosystem, everything is connected

Global challenges are complex in nature and require a systems approach. Everything is connected and we need each other to transform our world for the better. 

Trust and responsibility

We build trust by being present, consulting each other, taking responsibility. We learn from mistakes and help each other.​

ACTER'S CORE TEAM

Acter is being built by people. Meet our core team.

The team behind Acter, consists of a diverse group of people.
Social entrepreneurs, activists, and professionals, who all is a part of our shared vision. See us here.

Acter is different because it is built to increase activity in the real world, not to keep you hanging around online.
