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. Claiming their birthrights
With advisors, mentors, teachers, and colleagues, Bob Becker turned the moral idea of Humaginarium into a startup. A fellowship formed in 2017. In 2018 we began a formal customer discovery process. We’re about to engineer products and raise capital.
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. The body is what you are, not what you have. No one needs to remain clueless about themselves. We’re here to help.
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

“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 ourselves.

Humaginarium is bootstrapping until it receives seed funding from angel investors and grant makers. As a pre money startup we use Mike Moyer's Slicing Pie to track individual contributions of time and money. Our transparent "grunt fund" converts to equity or cash when Humaginarium LLC morphs into a C corp.
Our virtual office is Google G Suite for Business. Our physical meeting space is the Polsky Exchange incubator on the South Side of Chicago. We prefer Skype for online meetings.
