Openworld Institute (Mark Frazier)

2006: Explorers Foundation invested $2,500 in Openworld Institute.

We are a transnational social venture formed to help grassroots initiatives and global good causes become self-funding. Openworld catalyzes formation of free zones and free institutions – actual as well as virtual – in new ways that build assets for civil society initiatives.
Around the world, concerns over state failures are rising.

As information flows more freely, governments are finding people less inclined to accept inefficient or predatory public sectors. The visible successes of open economies are putting pressure on lagging localities, regions, and nations to change.

Openworld Institute has been formed to move world-class free market reforms into practical free and open source software solutions for all levels of government. A special emphasis is given to offering these solutions for demonstrations that bring new jobs, investments, and revenues to impoverished regions.

The Institute has a range of initiatives, in support of the Openworld "virtual catalysts" strategy, to encourage transforming changes in business climates in ways that produce lasting gains for all.

We look forward to your ideas and engagement in offering best-in-class eGovernment solutions to create free and prosperous societies!
