Circulating, Capital, Data, and Knowledge between People, Places, and Systems

Today's Realities

We are undergoing big shifts within our views on how local economies have worked and will work in the future; requiring struggle across our economic, natural, political, and cultural systems. This is an exciting time to develop new ways for our communities to thrive as we move from industrial age operating structures into a knowledge economy organized around creating relational systems that realize layers of dynamic returns, generating livelihoods for our present and future generations.

 

About

IPN is a systems-focused, community revenue building company that aligns and develops digital tools, co-creative methods, and innovative financing models designed to attract community and social impact investors.

We are composed of two operating entities:

FuelingMain.com, a municipality/county-focused project funding management platform for implementing public goods projects that deliver meaningful benefits and,

Invested Public Initiatives, a development strategy firm that helps communities build capacity by identifying and implementing projects phased to activate short-, mid-, and long-term productive value designed around local returns.

We seek to model our initiatives, offerings, and pot offerings to perform these value-actions:

  • Catalyzing, citizen, business, and organizational agency
  • Generating new revenue streams
  • Strengthening existing local capital resource capabilities
  • Circulating wider community access
  • Grounding production and reproduction of system project initiatives
  • Deploying initiative performance data and offering information
  • Expanding local "invested public" knowledge

Our Approach to Building Community Revenues

Our platform and processes directly engage community stakeholders, align and bundle project capital, and supply data and knowledge to our clients.

We offer four municipality/county client pathways:

  1. Do-it-yourself: Invested Public Funding (IPF™). Clients can either use the FuelingMain.com platform process to guide them through a series of self-generated worksheets or work with FuelingMain project development consultants to generate funding initiatives and offerings for their projects(s).

  2. Deepen the effects: Invested Public Systems (IPS™). Co-create a contextualized process for generating and implementing appropriate projects within the IPN™ strategic systems framework that furthers the above value-actions.

  3. Activate strategic growth: Invested Public/Private Partnership (IPP3™). Start by working with us to realize better outcomes in your public/private partnership relationships designed to build revenue streams for the city/county, circulate more capital locally, and keep you involved in actively directing the future of your community.

  4. Insert next-level innovation: Invested Public Data (IPD™). Combine the FuelingMain.com platform initiative, offering, and post offering data with the IPF™/ IPS™/ IPP3™ processes and strategies to generate new fonts of knowledge that can be used to create new sources of revenue and drive layers of value to enhance return to local actors.

Partner with us

We have spent three years designing and developing a systemic, innovative community-based revenue building company to direct trillions of dollars in new investable capital to sustaining foundational public goods projects that are critical to generating growth, health, and wealth.

We are presently partnering with a number of cities, counties, states, and foundations to generate and implement the first series of projects in order to create a productivity enhancing project funding system that meets the needs of our diverse communities.

Why now?

  • The list of desired but deferred public projects that underpin local sustainability, infrastructure effectiveness, and social connections is growing

  • ESG/Impact investment community seeks new deal flow that builds citizen and entity interest and access to projects that offer layers of local returns

  • An increasing number of communities are facing limited tax capacity and rising costs

  • Vast amounts of investor capital seek investments with direct relationships to their livelihood, can diversify their portfolios, and strengthen foundational systems

  • New regulations allow and have expanded the ability of non-accredited and accredited investors to invest in privately organized projects

  • Present and upcoming generations seek a more relational form of capitalism that supports “skin-in-the-game” investment opportunities aligned to their livelihoods and local future

  • The 2008 financial collapse coupled with the growing costs and urgency of climate change, and recent COVID economic impacts are pushing the limits of traditional public finance tools based on taxes and bonds.  This current state of affairs requires an alternative public good projects funding model
