A Few Words From The Founder

Welcome to Atheist Startups! Let me first give you a quick introduction of myself, the man spearheading this project. My name is Tashu and I have been working globally in the IT industry for more than 25 years. Presently, I head CyberMust Ltd, a London based Startup Builder.

I conceptualised Atheist startups in 2016, the year I finally succeeded in taming my prolonged and cruel, type -2 bipolar disorder. After taming this cruel monster, I created a new road-map for myself and steered both my personal & professional life into a new and more fulfilling direction. Atheist Startups is one of the most important projects of my new road-map.

My Views on Entrepreneurship & Startups

In my opinion, startup revolution and the emerging Sharing Economy is giving rise to a new form of socialist revolution that seeks to democratise wealth creation and distribution. It is creating economic opportunities for the masses like never before.

My Views on Atheism’s Definition

I believe that the dictionary definition of Atheism; “Disbelief or lack of belief in the existence of God or gods”; is too narrow for our times. It should be redefined, putting the main emphasis on ‘rationalism’, which actually is the foundation of atheism.

Atheist Startups Mission & Vision

Atheist startups is a non-profit organisation with a mission to create a global Atheist Startup Ecosystem and promote entrepreneurship as a means of democratisation of wealth creation and distribution.

Goals & Activities: Outlines

  • Community Portal: Developing & maintaining the community portal www.AtheistStartups.com  that’s feature-rich, user-friendly and scalable.  The portal is a hybrid between Angel List & Linkedin. This portal is the heart of the project. The main goal of this portal is to act as a hub and catalyst to create a global startup ecosystem, especially for the non-theists. Some of the main features of the portal are
    • Members Directory: Categorised and searchable Member Directory ( Entrepreneurs, Investors, Job Seekers, Service Providers etc.)
    • Organisations Directory: Members can create & list any number of organisations ( Startups, Incubators, VC Firms etc.) . Organisation can invite members to join it
    • Social Interaction: Members can interact with each other ( Friends, Chat, Forum, Collaboration etc.)
    • Job Portal: Organisations can pot their jobs that gets listed in a searchable job list. Members/Job seekers can search and apply to the jobs.
    • Social Marketplace: Members can barter, sell and buy relevant services and products in a transparent Social Marketplace.
  • Community Programmes: Developing and implementing global as well as region-specific community benefit programmes that help young atheist aspiring entrepreneurs join the startup movement. A few of the planned programmes are:
    • Online Incubator:  Extending complete support to aspiring atheist entrepreneurs who do not have access to startup support for whatever reasons ( Geographical location, lack of fund). It may run 3 to 6 months online incubation programmes.
    • Online Micro Startups: Popularising and promoting Online Micro startups among aspiring entrepreneurs. These are the startups that can be launched with a pre-seed fund of $25,000 max and that can be managed by a team of 4-5 remote entrepreneurs/workers operating from their homes.
    • Pre-seed & Seed Funding:  Providing initial funding to those aspiring atheist entrepreneurs who do not have easy access to funds.
    • Sharing Economy Startups: Encouraging entrepreneurs to give preference to starting Sharing Economy Startups that further creates small home business opportunities for the masses.

Legal & Organisational Structure

Legal Structure: I’m in the process of registering Atheist Startups as non-profit CIC (Community Interest Company) in London. CIC is a special type of limited company that was introduced by the UK government in 2005 to form non-profit social enterprises.

Organisational Structure: Following is the proposed organisational structure
