Hello - we’re in week two of this campaign!
It’s been humbling to witness the response from this community so far. We’ve had the pleasure of getting to know a number of new faces this past week and your sincerity, conviction and guidance are received with gratitude. Thank you to all of to those who have contributed to this project and are actively spreading the word.
Here’s a quick breakdown of what’s been going on:
We’ve raised nearly $21k from 250 backers
We have ~ 1,200 people wait-listed for our official beta
We’re releasing a video with Sustainable Human this upcoming week
We just released the first video of our Community Series below! Hear people’s thoughts about social media and why they believe in Junto.
We have a number of exciting partnerships brewing. More details to come as things begin to solidify.
One important reminder is that we are not running any ads. This project is completely grassroots and relies on this community to spread the word. We have 18 exciting more days to reach our goal so please share the link to our Kickstarter and feel free to distribute any of our content on your socials.
We also have sponsorship opportunities for those who are interested! Junto sponsors will have their name and/or logo on the home page of our website for a lifetime. You can read more about this on the tiers of our Kickstarter page.
If you want to connect or have any questions, don’t hesitate to reach out :)
All the best and Happy Lunar New Year,
The Junto Team

Here’s what our team found valuable this week:
When I first read this medium article by Douglas Rushkoff, I was inspired to immediately order his book: Team Human — just to find out that it was not yet published. This week I got an exciting opportunity to see and hear him live at his podcast recording in NYC and buy his book. A man called ‘extreme’ by some, has a heart-felt message: in spite of all the forces that separates us (technologies, markets, and cultural institutions), he believes in our humanity, our ability to thrive through collaboration, and that we come together as ‘Team Human’ to re-balance our society.
We want your feedback.
