If you need assistance in implementing a new Local, Complementary, Community, Digital, Barter, Cryptographic or Sharing Economy Currency System, or questions about improving an existing complementary currency system, of any type, anywhere in the world, you have come to the right place.
I’m Stephen, your first point of contact. The resources I provide as well as my personal assistance will help you to design and implement or improve your system.
Although I have more than 20 years experience in a wide variety of areas, from concept to design, implementation, research, troubleshooting, I may also refer you to, or work together with someone to ensure a successful outcome.
Please start by sending me an email to [stephen at complementarycurrency.org] which outlines your interest in starting a new system, so that I can get a general idea of what you would like to do, and help find your way to the information and support that you need.
My consulting assistance is according to a sliding scale of USD $25 per hour for self-financed startups, USD $50 per hour for funded startups and USD $75 per hour for established organizations.
If you wish to start a new complementary currency system, we ask you to download and fill out a brief Community Assessment form, to give us as much information about you, your group, and your community as possible. We would also like to know what type of system you are thinking of starting, and this Guide to Starting a New Complementary Currency System is very helpful.
It would be very beneficial if you were also to fill out the more detailed Situation Assessment as well, to give us a very clear idea about your proposed program. You may also want to consider doing a Community Economic Mapping project.
If you need assistance with improving an existing Local Currency System, we ask you to send us a detailed description and analysis of your system. This should include the Community Assessment form and Situation Assesment form, as well as your own analysis of the community and what program you would like to implement. Also, see the Methods for Assessing the Operations of a Complementary Currency System.
We will begin!
