About

Parliament curates a community of authentic executives, black sheep (entrepreneurs & artists), and best-selling authors that push one another to evolve and find ways to conspire.

Parliament is a platform that removes the bureaucracy, public scrutiny, and financial risk from experimentation at the cutting edge. We help our Members write books, launch initiatives across our community, and drive experiments around new technology. We are a trusted space that allows big thinkers to make little bets.

Rules of Order

The Parliament community lives by and bases decisions on four key values.

Human first

 

Human first.

Everything we do is guided by a fundamental desire to make the world a better place. Members of Parliament are hand-picked to ensure that our community is united by this shared mission.

Have fun

 

Have fun.

We’re serious about our goals, but not about ourselves. Parliament serves as a sandbox in which Members can play with the most cutting-edge technology and ideas, together.

Make Little Bets

 

Make Little Bets.

We don’t believe in less talk (keep the conversation going!) but we definitely believe in more action. We celebrate curiosity by catalyzing experiments and workshops around our Members’ interests and imperatives.

No a$$holes

 

No a$$holes.

We focus on outcomes, not titles. Parliament is about authentic collaboration and fast iteration, which means we don’t have time for egos.
