Free private cities are in an early phase. The potential is enormous. Entrepreneurial competition could lead to breakthrough innovations in the basic infrastructure of living together. The likelihood of such innovation is not certain, but it is high, because so far every industry opened to competition that was previously monopolized has shown it. This industry is also the largest of all, accounting for 30% of world GDP, three times the size of the healthcare or energy industries. Ninety percent of the suppliers make losses, although highly monopolized: Five percent control 80% of the market.
At this early stage, investments are risky, especially if they have a short-term horizon. For long-term investors, however, it could become another opportunity of the century, much like Bitcoin, because it too involves a potential revolution in the “software” of human interaction.
The Free Private Cities Foundation, based in Switzerland, is committed to strict neutrality and integrity. We cannot broker or recommend investments. However, we can offer the following to interested investors:
- New projects and project ideas are created almost daily in our industry. For strategic investors with six-figure sums or more, we share our insider knowledge of the industry free of charge, establish contacts and provide up-to-date market assessments. This represents an honorary academic engagement for the benefit of the development of this market and, of course, not investment advice or investment promotion. Feel free to contact us confidentially with more details on your budget, preferences and intentions.
- Very long-term investment can be a form of philanthropy: The investor is not interested in short-term returns, but in being personally involved in and advancing a potentially revolutionary development. The long-term return lies in the pioneering role in newly created markets and the resulting entrepreneurial opportunities, one’s own lessons and insider knowledge, contacts and positioning of a brand (as a long-term advertising strategy). To such pioneers we offer the possibilities of a philanthropic commitment (with tax deductibility of donations) or a long-term sponsoring partnership for projects (as advertising for a company or brand). We have worked out a concept for a first project, which could lay an efficient foundation for further development of the market with minimal capital requirements. Feel free to contact us confidentially with more details on your budget, preferences and intentions.
