Hypha collaborates with communities to build better relationships with technology.
What we do
We propagate community-led stewardship, grow technical capacities, and
deliver concepts and products.
Our expertise spans ideation to infrastructure.
- Decentralized web projects
- Capacity development
- Governance guidance
We build decentralized web protocols (see our Distributed Press initiative) and contribute to distributed ledger and blockchain-based projects. Hypha believes peer-to-peer technologies will transform traditional digital collaboration.
Capacity development is context dependent: we collaborate to understand where you are and where you need to go. If you’re a co-operative or a collective, Hypha has the lived experience and technical expertise to help you flourish.
We’re a co-op, so we know about the intricacies of working in a coordinated and democratic way. Hypha advises on decentralized governance challenges, and helps cultivate community ownership strategies.
A full list of our current projects can be found on our Work page.
Alongside experts in news media, historical preservation, and legal accountability, Hypha members work within Starling Lab for Data Integrity to build truthful digital ecosystems.

Our core values reflect our approach in cultivating respectful and
democratic technology ecologies.
We bring this ethos to every project we undertake.
We embrace diverse perspectives, and approach our work with wonder and openness. We move thoughtfully and joyfully toward the futures we imagine.
We strive to be clear and direct in our communication with each other and those with whom we collaborate. We endeavour to gracefully accept, and act on, feedback when it is given.
We recognize, and work across, differences. We acknowledge the ongoing history of oppression and marginalization in our society and workplaces, and strive for Hypha to be a safe harbour to all.
We choose the projects we work on. We are committed to upholding the financial security of our members and collaborators by fairly valuing the work we do.
We serve our clients, members, neighbours, and the co-operative movement the world over. Hypha embodies the co-operative values and seeks change that strengthens our communities and nurtures our planet.
