Loomio emerged from the need for a scalable way to make inclusive group decisions during the Occupy movement in 2011.
They experienced the transformative potential of collaborative decision-making, as well as its severe limitations: if people have to be in the same place at the same time to participate, it can never scale.
They set out to build a solution to this problem: using the Internet to give people an easy way to make good decisions together, wherever they are.
It’s called Loomio, like a loom for weaving diverse perspectives together.
Now more than 75,000 people have made more than 25,000 decisions on Loomio and has been the catalyst for social change worldwide.
