WE ARE THE ORIGINAL FOUNDERS OF THE VELOCITY NETWORK FOUNDATION
The Velocity Network is governed by a global, collaborative, democratic, nonprofit foundation, with members being diverse labor market stakeholders from HR and Ed tech, nonprofit and multilateral organizations, employers and educational institutions.
All members participate in the democratic governance framework. Participants in the network are all equal, adhering to the same protocols. The network belongs to no one and is run by its members.
The Foundation's role is to: govern the use of the Velocity Network by all involved parties; continuously build the rulebook, a common framework that ensures operational consistency and legal clarity for every transaction; promote global adoption and support among stakeholders and constituents; guide the development of the decentralized protocols; and support research and development of applications and associated services, fostering a community of open-source developers.
