Frequently Asked Questions

How does this initiative help the environment?

We wish just earning tons of money could really solve the urban chaos we face today in all MegaCities, like traffic, commute, pollution, water scarcity and unaffordable housing. Unfortunately, no amount of money we earn can ever get us or our family the quality of urban life we want and deserve in current mega cities. Joining us and helping us to make HappiCities a reality offers us a hope for a better life.

Who will be responsible to manage the funds collected?

We have open working hours and flexible leave policies. We are a team of self-driven passionate people who are empowered to take bold decisions, own the decisions and drive it to completion. We follow Holacracy model of self-managed organization. Even though we don’t report to a “Manager”, each one of us is accountable to everyone else in the company and to our fellow countrymen. We set our own targets and goals, think Big and bring new Ideas on the table, seek advice from the team, discuss, debate and eventually agree to pursue a path that we believe is right. We believe in equal opportunity for all and hate corruption in all forms (money, sexual or racial).
