WHAT IS REAL?
Real.org is a social enterprise of interrelated commercial and non-profit organizations working together for optimal social impact with dynamic equity sharing.
OUR MISSION
The nature of being human in the context of an increasingly technological ecology is one of the most important inquiries of our time. How do we build systems that make us more, not less, human? How can we use technology to accelerate meaning in our real lives? How do we put AI at the service of the creative leader, artisans, the editor or the auteur? REAL has been asking these hard questions for almost 20 years. Our mission is to change the nature of the systems that nudge, automate and increasingly control our lives — one project at a time.
WHY MEANING? WHY REAL?
