The HAT Foundation Group
A members-led, multidisciplinary advocacy group bringing about the future of the digital economy, working together to change the way we all use the Internet. Join us.
The HAT Foundation Group has established an open Innovation Ecosystem to support both early-stage and mature organisations as they work to champion the personal data economy by building business services and technology on the HAT. Partner Organisations joining the Innovation Ecosystem are able to enjoy technical and commercial support from HCF and HATDeX as members of the HAT Community, and can benefit from one another through community events and briefings. Once launched and certified, apps and services built through HAT Innovation on the HAT join the Live Ecosystem as components within the overall data exchange.
To help developers, entrepreneurs and SMEs take full advantage of this platform, the HAT Foundation Group will establish HAT Accelerator Labs to act as incubators for start-ups and SMEs wanting to build new Apps and services for a better Internet. HAT Developers do not necessarily need to join the Innovation Ecosystem - they are at liberty to develop Apps and services without support from the HAT Foundation Group based upon the publicly-available open-source assets if they choose - but the community exists to support these new technologies.
