echo is operated as Social Business and combines a non-profit philosophy of an NGO with powerful business models of a corporation.
"Powerful" doesn't merely mean working cost-covering. It also means helping people and organisations to provide their projects and actions with the necessary funds. echo supports the financing of these actions through cost-neutral fundraising and user-driven, democractic redistribution of its surpluses from different scalable business models.
After successful exit of potential conventional investors, all surplusses will be transferred back to facilitate projects and actions of the echo community. This is what we call "Your-Profit" business philosophy.
