      This new publication will put a spotlight on inspiring citizens who create initiatives.


      Whereas startups were defined as companies started in a garage with a laptop and ambition to scale globally, citizen initiatives are grassroots activities that grow as a network. Rather than operating as top-down institutions, they feed off the energy of their community and grow organically from the bottom-up.

      By this definition, does Readup qualify at least a little as a citizen initiative 😁 ?
