Initiatives

⚠️ Warning: Initiatives are still being set up, they replace working groups. Expect this space to change. ⚠️

Initiatives are mission-oriented projects that are executed by a self-organising team of 2-4 Hypha members who have the skills and tools to design, build, gather feedback or test, and finalize/release on the project. These include both internal and external-facing projects and tend to be reviewed on a quarterly basis.

Below we have the list of active initiatives as of 2021 Q3 and we keep a full archive of our projects.
