empowr is a partnership between academia and tech entrepreneurs that's attempting to deliver a democratized social media experience where the company is governed by its citizens.
The company's patented platform aims to provide economic opportunities for its citizens and return 97 percent of company revenues to them. empowr achieves this by democratizing the core elements of social media: user interface/design, advertising and marketplace, as well as the company’s governance, leadership and profits.
After seven years of research, development and testing with 100,000 citizens in its ‘closed alpha’ phase, empowr opened up its citizenship to 1,000,000 in September 2015.
