Humaginarium comes from a lifelong vision of ordinary people doing extraordinary things. Honoring their bodies with love and respect. Taking control of their health and happiness. Saying no to denial, fear, anger, depression. Becoming strong and decisive.
Inspired by a family member and helped by advisors, mentors, coaches, and colleagues, Bob Becker turned his vision into a startup. A fellowship formed in 2017. In 2018 we began a formal customer discovery process.
We get asked: consumers or patients, body or mind, behavior or knowledge, medicine or science, entertainment or education, learning or therapy? We reply: Humaginarium is a dichotomy killer. A body is who you are, not what you have. No one needs to remain clueless about it. Wellness is not that difficult.
Fellowship is more than teamwork. It's vision, values, trust, style, respect, and synergy wherein the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Humaginarium is a Fellowship. Dave Walker is a software engineer and program manager of video games. Ramiro Atristain is a financier and banker. Alan Klevens is a marketer of biotech. Bob Becker is an ideologist and instructional systems designer. Together they have a century of business and professional experience.
“You can trust us to stick to you through thick and thin — to the bitter end. And you can trust us to keep any secret of yours — closer than you keep it yourself. But you cannot trust us to let you face trouble alone, and go off without a word. We are your friends.” So said Merry Brandybuck to Frodo Baggins; and so say we to customers, investors, collaborators. and each other.
Humaginarium is a tech startup incorporated 2016 as a limited liability company in the State of Illinois. The founders are in Illinois, Georgia, and Pennsylvania; advisors around the US.
Humaginarium is bootstrapping until it receives seed funding. As a pre money startup we use the Slicing Pie method to track contributions of time and money. Our transparent "grunt fund" will convert to equity or cash when Humaginarium LLC morphs into a C corp, probably in 2019.
Our virtual office is Google G Suite for Business. Our physical meeting space is the Polsky Exchange incubator on the South Side of Chicago. In time we will employ collaborators but will not lease commercial space until 2020.
