We are a 100% independent think tank and campaign lab from Berlin. Our mission: prototyping the future of society.
We believe that a digitized society works better with a universal basic income. As hands-on visionaries we explore a basic income society practically - one basic income at a time.
Can it be financed? We want to find out by starting the first self-financed basic income community with 100+ people.
How can social movements efficiently get organized digitally? What is the digital future of (direct) democracy?
Could we share money? We're finding out by building a platform which lets people share their bank accounts.
At Mein Grundeinkommen we run the first crowdfunded basic income experiment. So far we have crowdfunded and raffled out more than 120 basic incomes, which is 1,5 million Euros. From Berlin, Germany, we are now taking our experiment to the international stage. In light of current technological disruptions we want to know what the tech world thinks about basic income – and start a conversation.
You can use Paypal, Bitcoin or, if you are attending #websummit in Lisbon, you can come to our stand at the Beta startup exhibition space. There we can also process donations by card or in cash.

When you tweet about #BasicIncomeChallenge you will automatically receive a raffle code. You can check it here by entering your twitter handle:
No, every human can take part. It’s an unconditional basic income.
Every participant receives a unique raffle code. We will hold the raffle on Thursday, November 9th at MEO Arena, Lisbon and use our wheel of furtune to determine the winning code. The raffle will be shown and recorded via a livestream. We will share the link shortly before the raffle on this website and our Twitter account @meinbge.
We will contact you directly via Twitter. Also: we will live stream the raffle and publish a recording of it.
In case we can’t raise a full basic income until Thursday, November 9th, 2017 we will use the money which has been donated in another way to advance the idea of basic income.
You can contact us via email at firstname.lastname@example.org, Twitter @meinbge and subscribe to our newsletter or join our mailing list.
Organisations that tweet about #BasicIncomeChallenge will automatically participate in our raffle. If they win we will let them decide who to give the basic income to.
