Acter is born from lived frustrations. Both Emil and Janne have for years worked in civil organizing with various projects and experienced the immense amount of information to be handled, shared and acted upon. Alongside that comes the number of people to keep involved in a purposeful way with well-coordinated tasks and good organizing. From those experiences Emil initiated a research process in 2019 about what barriers and resources are at play when organizing on global issues.
One thing that was missing was an infrastructure to connect initiatives and people.In 2020 the first prototype was initiated and tested out by among many others Janne who then joined the team. In February 2021 the first beta version was built in our own code and in June 2021 we initiated the onboarding of our very first users. In that time our team grew with so many wonderful people - Damon, Malik, Jude, Virag, Mirek, Javier, Josephine - just to mention some of them.
In 2022 Acter became a registered socio-economic business which is the legal term and registration for our purpose-over-profit and socially responsible company. In July Acter became an open source project.
