Kolektivo enables local communities to create and manage their own regenerative economy to fuel prosperity
The Kolektivo Framework combines the latest digital innovations to create a framework that blends a native token, a community currency, local governance and impact measurement tools into one to create local impact economies.
The framework explicitly aims to empower local communities to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. While this framework focuses on a first pilot in Curaçao, it aims to scale to larger communities.
Kolektivo funds and supports projects that create a positive, and sustainable impact within our communities. We have defined six impact areas intersecting the UN’s Sustainable Development Goals, keeping in mind Curaçao’s unique challenges and characteristics.
All Kolektivo Grants are reviewed in a transparant process where community members vote in a Blockchain application to determine if Grants are accepted or not.

Since 2019 Kolektivo has been supporting local development projects through the CuraDAO grants. Over $10.000 in resources have been distributed to 12 projects.
The seeds and foundation of Kolektivo have been created in the Caribbean island of Curaçao.
For over 3 years, citizens of Curaçao have researched and piloted decentralized tools to reshape their island. So far, over 20 projects, ranging from tokenized food forest to governance research, have been facilitated.
