Join the Bento Society

Welcome. You’ve come to the right place.

The Bento Society is a community of people who have turned off life’s autopilot. People called by a purpose. People learning to lead and thrive in a new world.

We practice making decisions that balance the near and long-term and the needs of the people around us. We learn from others who are going through challenges similar to and different from our own. We challenge ourselves to imagine and work towards a better future. And we do it together as members of The Bento Society.

“It’s a safe space for you to connect, reflect and be thoughtful in a way that I have never experienced before. It’s magical.”

“It literally changed my life. I feel like now I have a focus beyond the present. It makes me think beyond today and see life from another perspective.”

“If you are looking to connect and exchange perspectives with a community of individuals who are curious, empathetic, and open-minded, then this is the place for you.”

Gain a compass to a changing world through the Ideaspace, a publication going deep into technology, values, data science, long-term thinking, and related topics through essays, research, and interviews. There are also special events with experiments and explorations of emerging projects and ideas.

Support R&D for a better future through Bento Society grants we give each quarter to projects and organizations aligned with our mission. The first of these will be announced in early 2021.

Peace and love,
