Enterprise here is used in the broad sense: any human undertaking - possibly solopreneurial but more likely revolving around movements, organizations, and institutions.

Enterprise based on Integrated Education, Integrated Design, and focusing on deep missions of solving pressing world issues, humanely.

Such enterprise is fundamentally Distributive, and thus highly scalable for solving The Last Frontier of Economics. It also involves Work-Life Integration.

The essential characteristics of integrated enterprise are:

  1. Check.pngIntegrated agents - the entrepreneurs involved are solopreneurship-capable collaborators - meaning that they can operate either with minimum staff or large teams. Solopreneurs in the integrated enterprise sense are those individuals who can engage in 10x the amount of different roles - effectively and with high efficiency - compared to an average professional. This is achieved by Integrated Education. Rapid learning is the key to a multifaceted skill set. Naturally, high skill set means high value generation, closer to the true potential of any person who chooses not to hyperspecialize. We select for integrated agency 10x over hyperspecialization, and our education programs are designed to transition individuals from their hyperspecialized roles to integrated agency.
  2. Check.pngEnterprise integration - mainly Vertical Integration, Product Ecologies, and Intersectoral Integration. Vertical Integration (supply chain import substution); Horizontal Integration (not so much product consolidation but more about product ecologies in the sense of related and interoperable products); integration of product lines into robust, interoperable product ecosystems via the Construction Set Approach and Product Ecologies; Intersectoral Integration - meaning that an enterprise operates across the sectors of the economy.

In simple terms, this enterprise has Integrated Marketing.


  • For example, the integrated version of the Seed Eco-Home enterprise is designed to include the first, second, third, fourth, and fifth sectors as needed depending on the scale and scope of the enterprise. In such an enterprise, the average builder can perform the work of 10-20 different tradespeople. Such an enterprise is capable of producing their own custom home designs - while producing construction materials from renewable materials and energy, and building its own tools and construction machines as needed. Such an enterprise is also capable of automating its operations at any level and scale via software and robotics. Given that the enterprise is flexible and part of a flexible fabrication paradigm, it can upsize, downsize, and differentiate readily into other enterprises based on a Construction Set Approach to the production facility and to the product line.
