We at Almende Investments believe that ICT is most valuable when it is used to offer people the opportunity to organize their activities for themselves. Thus we have brought together several companies which are orientated around the concept of self-organization. All these companies use ICT – for instance agent technology or self-learning software – to aid people in organizing their own networks, and thus their own lives.
