Anoox was formed back in 2004 by a group of Internet visionaries who have been involved with the Internet since its very beginning in 1996, who realized that too much of the incredible value that the Internet can generate was and is going to the Wall Street based Big Businesses and the Billionaire class, rather than to Small Businesses and the "regular People" on Main Street. And that the only way to right this imbalance would be through a non-profit Social network & Search engine.
A Social Search Network that would put People over Profits ("POP")
and Share prices on Wall Street. This task has proven to be a Herculean one to put it mildly, since whereas our Wall Street peers get Billions and Billions from Wall Street, we get Zero from Wall Street and instead are dependent on Volunteers, Donations and sale of Advertising. But we somehow pulled through and that is why Anoox is the only one of its kind
It is a privilege to share our story and manifesto with you, and the values that have guided us since our founding and are guiding us to go forward.
We hope that many other businesses will follow suit and like us put Social and Environmental causes above Profits and Share prices on Wall Street.
We truly believe that the world would be a better place if more businesses were driven by meaningful causes rather than driven by maximizing profits and share prices.
These facts have become crystal clear with the incredible disruption to the business & life due to CoronaVirus
, where many small businesses will suffer, even go out of business, because they have no access to low cost Advertising
, and no access to Capital. Whereas the 0.1% Wall Street connected businesses will be able to access 100s of Millions of Dollars even Billions of Dollars, samples of which you can see here
, to dominate even more markets, to have even more of the immense value that the Internet can generate going to the Wall Street based Businesses. A most unfair markets
, that we can try to address by coming together via non-profit Search engine & Social network Collectives, of which Anoox is still the ONLY one 10+ Years and counting, and supporting one another
, as a result of which we can be Richer based on our Collective support of one another - Get Involved
