Welcome to the Are.na roadmap. Here you can see what we’ve shipped recently, what we’re building next, and how we’re doing as a company.
By sharing this information we aim to demystify the weird and wonderful process of working on a mostly bootstrapped web company. We’re working our hardest to build a space that’s mindful, respectful, and accountable to our thousands of lovely members. We have lots of ideas for how to do a better job, as well as lots of challenges.
This is meant to be as transparent as reasonably possible. If there’s something you don’t see here that you’d like to know, just email email@example.com.
Road to self-sustainability
Are.na’s mission is to build a member-supported community. Since we're accountable to our members instead of advertisers, our incentive is always to build a tool that fosters learning and genuine collaboration. This also means that Are.na’s future relies entirely on community contributions. Here’s how you can help:
Premium members get unlimited private content, additional privacy settings, an invitation to our members’ Slack and more features soon. More about Premium:
Premium members currently contribute $6,027 in monthly recurring revenue.
If you’re already Premium and want to chip in a little extra, or if you simply want to help Are.na make faster progress, you can make a monthly contribution. You’ll receive regular emails from the team, plus a unique piece of Are.na merch.
