Our story

We started in 2017 with the mission to explore what makes communities thrive. We were curious to understand how technology, particulary social media and the platform economy, change the way we connect with each other. We created co—matter as a vehicle to (1) research these topics together with a global network of experts and (2) apply the insights we gained to work with organisations that aim to engage their audiences in new, exciting ways.

We’ve worked with innovation labs like SPACE10 and Samsung Next to create grant programs, conferences and reports, launched a festival and think tank in Copenhagen, collaborated with The Conference and IAM Weekend to bring people together, developed creator strategies for global brands like Native Instruments, Capture One and The Hoxton, launched programs to accommodate thousands of climate activists in Glasgow during COP26, brought underground jazz to a global audience during the pandemic and published reports predicting the next era of the social web.

Today we focus on the emergent effects of technology on culture; particularly the ways in which the internet changes how we create, publish, distribute and sustain knowledge and creativity. Our mission is to help shape a future that enables us to live in harmony with our natural and technological environment.

What we do

We create solutions at the intersection of communities, technology and culture to help organisations connect with their audience.

Who we are

We are a network of editors, strategists, designers, technologists and researchers with a combined 10,000+ years experience building brands around highly engaged communities.
