The General Forum (GF) is the lifeblood of our Smartup, serving as the public square where all owners exercise their ownership rights and obligations. It is the only group where all Smartup members convene, and it provides a space for discussion, suggestions, criticism, voting, and organization through the process of deliberation. Essentially, it is the public space for all members to oversee the activities taking place within the Workplace and to discuss them. The GF is also where you can measure the viability of your community, as it is one of the parameters that can indicate the health of a Smartup. A Smartup thrives on the level of people’s willingness to commit to the responsibilities that come with being an owner of a Smartup.
