Create More Bankable Projects that will have a 10X Impact on Citizens' Lives

“The BuildCoin Foundation is itself an exponential organization and is bringing disruptive technology to the infrastructure industry. Their mission and vision are perfectly aligned with ours," said Salim Ismail, Chairman of the ExO Foundation.

The BuildCoin™ Foundation and the ExO Foundation, today announced a strategic partnership to leverage their combined disruptive technologies and methodologies to bring new thinking, innovation and creativity to the way public infrastructure projects are originated and executed.

The BuildCoin Foundation funds and executes critical feasibility studies necessary for creating “shovel ready” bankable infrastructure projects. Under the current system many important projects are stuck in financial and political limbo. The ExO Foundation, and its related entity, Fastrack Institute, have methodologies, tools and structures for creating exponential solutions for projects and institutional problems. Today’s announcement combines their expertise to create new “exponential projects” that quickly and efficiently move critical public infrastructure efforts from origination to completion.

Together, BuildCoin Foundation, ExO Foundation and Fastrack Institute will:

  • Use Fastrack methodologies developed by ExO Foundation and Fastrack Institute to engage project stakeholders to imagine and define the best possible solutions for maximum impact
  • Use the BuildCoin blockchain ecosystem to create a transparent process for selecting, funding and running these projects
  • Execute the strategic projects that create a 10X impact on peoples’ lives compared to alternative approaches

To fund projects, BuildCoin Foundation has created an endowment vehicle that allows entities to grant money to the foundation for kick-starting origination efforts for projects with an altruistic purpose. As these are executed, money used for origination is replenished, along with a ‘reward.’ This creates an exponential endowment: the more projects originated, the more the fund grows to originate even more strategic projects.

The ExO Foundation and Fastrack Institute Sprint methodology is then applied to engage project stakeholders in a process that defines the most impactful solutions. This results in the best possible outcome for the project in the least amount of time, and at a significant cost savings.

“We’re thrilled to be partnering with the ExO Foundation and Fastrack Institute. Successfully executing pre-development work and feasibility studies is key to creating bankable projects. The ExO Foundation’s transformative approach will help governments and private organizations look at infrastructure projects in a whole new way,” said John Cronin, President of the BuildCoin Foundation. “Together we’ll make sure the right questions are being asked before a solution is decided upon. With our blockchain ecosystem and the ExO Foundation’s proven methodologies we can unlock infrastructure projects around the globe and implement cost effective, innovative and sustainable solutions”

“The BuildCoin Foundation is itself an exponential organization and is bringing disruptive technology to the infrastructure industry. Their mission and vision are perfectly aligned with ours, said Salim Ismail, Chairman of the ExO Foundation. “We’re excited to combine our Fastrack Sprints with the BuildCoin ecosystem to bring about transformational change to the infrastructure industry and deliver vital infrastructure to communities around the world.”

The first projects for the combined BuildCoin, ExO, and Fastrack entity being considered include the State of Sao Paulo Smart Cities project, and projects in Puerto Rico.
