Traidmark.org is a FREE business structure that enables you to gain from hard work (performance pay) while adding value to any enterprise by funding innovation and running your enterprise as a Not For Profit or For Profit organisation that invests any surplus funds (or 100% net profit in the case of the for profit organisatioin). enterprise + philanthropy + coop = http://www.Traidmark.org = institutional innovation for gov org nfp or capitalism

Every organisation, company and government could be run more effectively as a Charity AND benefit the owners shareholders or taxpayers

Every company, organisation, government agency or sole trader can enhance what they do and save lives just by registering as a charity so that all their net profits are then spent on new innovation that benefits everyone and charitable causes. Founders, employees, partners and investors all gain from the large added goodwill that is gained that translates into profits that then are used to fund innovation that saves lives. The founders and shareholders can even more money from the enterprise as they gain by getting large performance pay packages that are greater than their original personal profit as the company is making larger profits from the extra goodwill it gains.

For example. A sole trader changes their status to a charity and donates net profit to new innovative charitable work. They then gain large amounts of goodwill from this and so get more and more work enabling them to get rich on performance pay WHILE saving lives with the extra funds that they raise which are then spent on innovative sustainable charitable work. http://www.whymandesign.posterous.com has more details. http://www.WEBiversity.org has more video’s

Here is a screenshot from talking to Mamading Ceesay and also Bjoern Lasse Hermann from SuperCoolSChool about TRAIDmark and how it can help any existing or startup company and chairty.

Traidmark.org = YOUR WORK + Institutional Innovation + Philanthropy

Traidmark.org = Not / For Profit + Institutional Innovation + Philanthropy (generating goodwill which enhances success and make everyone richer with performance pay)

This is a FREE way for any organisation to get instant goodwill and create Institutional Innovation so you gain more success and can help more people.

Get RICHER and do good for FREE! Sounds too good to be true but it is true. The hard part is to give away 100% net profit (which sounds counter intuitive but is the genius part when you get over the egoic greed of wanting to own the profit). When you give away 100% net profit your organisation essentially becomes a charity fundraising organisation so the enhanced goodwill you get will create so much success that you will get more back in performance pay from working in your organisation. So you can get richer by giving away your wealth! The cooperative have been doing this for generations but they did not invest all the funds in innovative charitable activity and that is the second stroke of genius. By investing the funds in INNOVATIVE charitable activity your funds can solve problems in the most efficient way once and for all enabling you to go on and work on new exciting solutions to other problems. If you dont know how to find innovative solutions ask us @whymandesign @FREEtraid

All you have to do is pledge to donate 100% net profit into new Innovative ways to solve human problems and you will gain

Enhanced Goodwill – leading to customer/client/supplier/employee/customer loyalty and enhanced productivity which makes you more successfull and is an added USP you can use against your competition which allows everyone in your company to get richer through enhanced performance pay.

Save lives – You can save lives by using your net profit to innovatively create ways to solve human health/education… problems.

Funds are therefore continually iinvested in new charitable projects that benefit everyone creating an infinitely scaling cycle of success.

Your could say…

Traidmark.org = COOP where funds are donated to INNOVATIVE charitable use rather than given to members

Traidmark.org =  SHAREHOLDER owned company where dividends are donated to INNOVATIVE charitable use rather than given to shareholders

Traidmark.org =  CHARITY where funds are donated to INNOVATIVE charitable use rather than given to the same old charitable use

Traidmark.org =  GOVERNMENT where funds are donated to INNOVATIVE charitable use rather than given to the same old government.

How to enhance ANY organisation or startup so you become more successfull for FREE

How to enhance ANY organisation or startup so you become more successfull for FREE &

A. Help everyone collaborate together on charity work,
B. Save lives by donating NET profit (after R&D costs),
C. Gain lots of new customers & suppliers & volunteers who want to help,
D. Gain more goodwill so you get a cumulative mass enhancing your organisations success
E. get personally richer through performance pay by giving away ownership of the organization/company to the world!

http://www.Traidmark.org FREE Business Structure EVERYONE can use = YOUR WORK + 100% Net Profit Philanthropy (spent on INNOVATIVE NOT FOR PROFIT WORK to help/save lives)

It sounds impossible but has been proven to work by cooperatives for ooo’s of years…

http://www.TRAIDmark.org explains the full benefits where you agree to pledge to donate surplus funds you generate into NEW INNOVATIVE charitable work which attracts customers so you gain more success and get rich with performance pay WHILE saving lives by donating funds raised to NEW INNOVATIVE charitable work (that you can create if you want to).
The more you give the more you get. http://www.TRAIDmark.org

You could say that the TRAIDmark.org business structure is halfway between a Charity and a Company where you get the BEST OF BOTH WORLDS with caring compassion for everyone AND the Innovation that enables you to help everyone efficiently.

1. INVESTORS
Investors can invest in startups and gain by being paid performance pay as a member of the team without owning the startup. This means that they can donate funds into new startups (which can save them funds in tax too!) and get paid performance pay for their work enhancing it. This means that the startup will forever be run in the best interest of the customer AND can fund innovations that benefit everyone.

2. ENTREPRENEURS
Anyone can set up their own enterprise at almost now cost using the web as a bootstrapped startup so can use this free business structure to help then succeed while also charitably helping others.
3.CUSTOMERS / EMPLOYEES / SUPPLIERS
Customers & Employees can demand that this happens to any company organisation or government department as it is in the best interests for everyone. The best way to do this is to contact the owner / Board members directly by contacting them on the phone/twitter.

4. BANKRUPT / RECEIVERS / ADMINISTRATORS
Any organisation or company that closes down can be saved by doing this. Either the assets can be taken away to pay off debts and the rest of the organisation can be donated to a charity OR the whole organisation can be turned into a Not For Profit Charity (which has positive tax savings). This will instantly SAVE JOBS in the organisation and give it a goodwill boost that will enable it to be saved from bankruptcy (like a phoenix).

Cooperatives have been successfully growing fro many years such as http://www.co-operativebank.co.uk & http://www.co-operative.coop & they can be enhanced by using the TRAIDmark.org model to spend the funds they generate on Innovative new charitable work.

Here are a few organisations already doing this (many donate 1-50% but that is often just a token gesture where as 100% helps save/improve many more lives:)…

The more you #give the more you #get using #innovation @TRAIDmark #os #nfp #charity #cic #gov #ted

http://www.TRAIDmark.org explains how easy and counter intuitive it is to donate all your net profit to INNOVATIVE charitable work and get richer than if you were to selfishly clasp on to as much of the tiny profit you would generate without using this selfless business structure. If you register as a charity there are also may other advantages and benefits that will contribute to your success and therefore your performance pay. The irony is that people who do not use this are making themselves miss out. As it is free there is only one reason which is ignorance/awareness so  please tell anyone you know so they do not miss out.

The premise is this. As we are all standing on the shoulders of giants by using the wheel, fire, tools to name just a few of our ancestors gifts to us… we are obliged to pass on what we create to future generations by NOT claiming ownership of them but instead working on projects  that are run ‘for the people’ such as not for profits and charities. The hidden benefits of doing this can only fully be discovered by trying it. For instance when you create this people often find your work and offer to help in unexpected ways that help you personally and professionally.

There are two groups, The have’s and the have nots. Those that have wisdom know that selflessly helping others is key. Those that do not have wisdom think that selfishness is key. Both benefit and can collaborate using Traidmark.org

We would like to help anyone wanting to help others. For instance  can
we help you using the http://www.TRAIDmark.org business model (where you
get rich with performance pay and you gain from added goodwill created
by donating funds to charity?) This is essentially a cooperative or Not
for Profit but where any surplus funds are invested in NEW Innovative
Not for Profit activity that solves different social problems innovatively.

It solves several issues.
A. It invests any wealth generated into more Innovation creating
Institutional Innovation
B. It stops organisations getting large (large organisations become
inefficient)
C. It stops anyone running any organisation from getting corrupted by
power/wealth as all organisations are small and efficient.
D. It rewards success (through the application of Innovation) in a
clever way that encourages selfless hard work by enabling the successful
people who use the business model to go on an invent then develop new
innovations so they create the freedom co continually make new ways to
help others. It also rewards hard work with performance pay so anyone
motivated by greed can still get rich (without owning the organisation).
Traidmark.org was created to help people like you make the largest impact with your donations. The key is for you to donate to INNOVATIVE new charitable work that is more efficient than traditional charitable work. This is ideally charitable work that solve the cause of a problem in a sustainable way rather than pick up the pieces. Often this can be done by creatively inventing solutions.

Traidmark.org = FREE Goodwill + Innovation + Freedom to help others

We would like to give you a FREE way you can beat your competition while improving your work which is called the http://www.TRAIDmark.org business model (where you get rich with performance pay and you gain from added goodwill created by donating funds to charity?) This is essentially a Cooperative or Not for Profit but where any surplus funds are invested in NEW Innovative Not for Profit activity that solves different social problems innovatively.

Traidmark.org enables everyone to gain from hard work (performance pay) while adding value to any enterprise by funding innovation and running your enterprise as a Not For Profit or For Profit organisation that invests any surplus funds (or 100% net profit in the case of the for profit organization).So you gain popularity, volunteers, donations, collaborations and importantly goodwill by pledging to donate up to 100% net profit (or all surplus funds after R&D) BEFORE you become successful which in turn increases your chances of becoming successful.

Imagine if Warren Buffett or Bill GatesLi Ka-shingGeorge Soros Howard Hughes (or any of the other philanthropists that are listed below http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_philanthropists) had pledged to donate their riches before they earned them. How much more funds could they have created using the added goodwill they would have cumulatively created over the years (not to mention the good work that they could have done to solve problems earlier if the money had been used as soon as it had been created). 1. This is a great way to enhance philanthropy by funding creativity and rewarding philanthropists and 2. importantly it means that everyone can become a philanthropist no matter what they earn. We can all be Microphilanthropists and gain greater success so we benefit personally too. One clear example is that Microfinance organisations can use this model to enhance the way they innovate.

It is that simple. All that you or anyone has to do is agree to donate all surplus funds to innovative charitable work (which you can set up and create so you are not giving money away but rather spending it on amazing new charitable projects you create).

This importantly increases creativity and inventions by creating institutional innovation by forcing any organisation to invest suplus funds into new innovative ways to solve problems. This is especially useful for governments and charities or philanthropic or training funds that have to be spend by certain dates every year as the funds can be saved by wise investments then used to fund pioneering innovation that will be able to efficiently solve problems through creative blue sky activities that build on and improve existing activities in an even more effective way.

This is how it works.
The organisation invests surplus profit in NEW Innovative enterprise (which helps make that organisation continually evolve because of this structure) which creates better services through institutional innovation. Everyone who works hard can still get financially rewarded through performance pay but there is a goodwill boost as everyone knows the organisation is solving human problems in the most efficient way possible by using innovation.

This adds significant customer loyalty and enables hard work to be rewarded through pay while investing in innovative solutions to social problems.

Anyone can implement the Traidmark business model. This is because any surplus created can be invested in innovative social enterprise which makes it a lot easier to ‘do good’.

So Traidmark is promoting the benefits of creating and running Not for profits that importantly invest any surplus cash in NEW innovative social enterprise not for profits. This enables good work to continually evolve and fund even more innovative work that is more efficient.

FREE Institutional Innovation structure that benefits everyone

FREE Institutional Innovation structure that benefits everyone.

Business structures to benefits everyone by creating institutional innovation that will make any organisation innovative more and therefore create better services that then help improve everyone’s lives.

Explanation of the benefits from the simple act of donating net profit.

An organisation is trading normally today (or is in difficulty or not making a profit)

The organisation makes the simple change of structure by formally agreeing to donate 100% net profit (after wages/tax/R&D) into innovation and innovative brand new charitable work.

This enables the organisation to get a goodwill value boost overnight which increases the value of the company.

Customers an suppliers and competitors then look on the organisation as a partner rather than a competitor and so will do extra things to help the company grow (loyalty, voluntary, complimentary).

Employees work harder knowing that any extra funds will be used for charitable work (and everyone in the organisation including the founders AND investers can get rich by getting performance pay as they work hard to make the organisation as success).

So everyone wins. The Investers and founder and politicans all win as they get increased productivity and get rich through performance pay and they get to become philanthropists and benefit from getting goodwill (and feeling great about the philanthropic organisation they created) before they get rich (rather than after they are rich which is the way the old philanthropic model works).

So this Traidmark.org business structure builds on the  proven soccess of the Cooperative model where by surplus funds are given out but IMPORTANTLY funnels those funds so they can be used to create innovation that cost effectively can help everyone (aiming to fund future innovations as revolutionary as the wheel / bicycle…)

The ideal situation would be to have an innovative product funded and marketed successfully, with all profits used to fund science for humanity ventures. This would achieve productivety in the richer Nations and funding would follow, the trick is getting the development funds in the first instance.
Taking this forward would need a secret millionaire to kickstart it, but alas there are very few willing to donate…Unless you are one reading this? In case you ask, an innovative product could be found in the patent office files there are plenty which may never see the light of day due to lack of initial development funding.

Pravesh and Allan

Thanks for the great information:)

We are working on a self funding cafe format that anyone can set up (with a basic cover site at ) http://openspacecafe.ning.com

Also check out http://www.traidmark.org which explains the benefit of donating net profit to fund future innovation:)

It would be great if it was possible to anyone to set up an enterprise though science 4 humanity too:)

Hi Ed

Great idea and something I’ve always been interested in. I did a quick poll of a group I was talking to ages ago to gage public reaction to a company that charged a little more (few %) that the competition but donated more/all profit to charity or supported community projects etc. I was disappointed when most said they wouldn’t support an organisation like that – they would prefer to donate, rather than be charge more etc. That was only a small test group, but I would think that if a product is good quality and roughly priced at market value then people will support it. I have helped design products so would be interested in helping.

I was interested in starting a software organisation staffed by volunteers to code software similar to OpenOffice and other common main stream applications. I like what the Natural History Museum are doing at the moment with simple science kits. I even bought a scale model of the ear for my research!

I was impressed by Kiva ( www.kiva.org ) that help people provde short term loans to people in developing countries. This highlights peoples desire to help as there are not enough entrepreneurs to meet the demand from lenders!

Hi Richard

What you are doing sounds great. Check out brightone.org as they would be good partners. I also would love to work with other tech volunteers to solve social problems innovatively and cheeply then generate income that can be used to fund even more innovation which is the aim of the Traidmark.org business structure. The aim is to have cheeper products (through innovation) that also donate 100% net profit to charity so the consumer gets cheeper goods and also knows where the profits are going:)
