The Social Impact
An alternative to discord, twitter, doom scrolling, and the social media of today
Uphold Core Values
Enable a new kind of social networking
Elevate Reliable Stakeholders
Aping in with high spirits and refreshingly witty repartee
Firestarter for better or for worse, always up-front
Attention getting personality, yet focused on matters of substance
Willing to burn it down to build it back right
Meticulous and detail oriented with anxious overtones
Can’t stop, won’t stop entrepreneur who is always innovating and creating
Determination, self-improvement, financial success
TEAM TEAM TEAM, TEAM TEAM TEAM
HYYP is the result of social impact, innovation, entrepreneurship, and art visionaries who are committed to changing the internet as we know it today. Our obligation is to use this collective benefit not just for our community benefit, but for social impact work.
HYYP is a diverse, invite-only community with members from all over the world and from every walk of life. We’re built around one shared obsession: social impact. We bring together absolute gems of human beings in order to take collective action and grow this unique environment. We’re here to show that technology can support personal growth and collective impact.
Our unique approach is highly dependent on members demonstrating RELIABILITY; almost everyone is capable of this key trait, but it can get a little rusty in today’s overcommitted, sometimes flaky online environment.
Our members are also: friendly, compassionate, cooperative, and committed to long term thinking.Our goal is to lead a shift towards a higher standard for transparency, trust, mutual support, well-being and self-regulation in fields like Web3, marketing, charity, entrepreneurship, and other fields.
We think it’s about time that both technology and your fellow members are aligned around personal growth and collective action - and our aim is to provide the infrastructure that makes this possible. Having 10,000 followers on instagram is cool, having an endless feed on tiktok is engaging, having a bunch of connections on linked in feels opportune. HYYP features action. HYYP has already proven that having just a few dozen really collaborative, reliable people aligned around action can be more impactful than having millions of followers primarily aligned around scrolling. Now, as we grow, we are beginning to imagine what it will look like to have thousands of action-oriented members in our community and not just the hundreds we have today.
The HYYP App will be one of the first Social Impact Social Networks built for like-valued individuals - featuring lots of the communication and community features you’ve come to expect from a mobile first app - with innovative features that allow for collaboration, personal growth, and collective action.
Revolutions are tough business. In order to have one that is constructive rather than destructive, the revolution must come from within each person. That is why the collective is dedicated to several ongoing initiatives aimed at each person and at the collective:
personal development, mutual education, conflict resolution, restorative justice, social and professional networking, emotional and spiritual wellbeing, and social impact. The collective seeks to empower and train the change-agents who will beneficially impact their local communities and the online/Web3 ecosystem.
We consider social impact a muscle - and like any other muscle - you must exercise it regularly to keep it in shape. There are 3 main early personal projects that we ask each member to keep track of for themselves - and that we hold regular group conversations regarding:
Impact with your hands, offline: the habit of showing up regularly in your offline community
Impact of any amount with your wallet: the habit of regularly scheduled generosity even if <$0.50/month
Effective altruism: dialing up your personal contributions and charitable contributions with an eye to efficacy.
Our first HYYP community is centered around leaders in innovation and tech who have an obsession with social impact. In the future, we want to build out other communities - a network of networks. Each themed community will have a focus (leaders in marketing, college visionaries, leaders in effective altruism, social impact investors, personal growth experts, etc) and will also select for social impact interest or abilities.
One thing that is special about our approach is that early growth of each community/network is invite-only and each community/network has dedicated recruitment, project management, and community organizing personnel.
