    Utopia42 believes that positive connections between human beings is one of the greatest joys a person can experience. We want to "hold space" for these kinds of relationships to form in a digital environment. This is something that we as the leaders of Utopia42 have personally experienced and value highly. This is something we are prepared to lead for the potential benefit of humanity as a whole without concern for building wealth. We will re-invest profits back into improving our service so that we may continue to manage to our only metric that matters = Building positive human to human connections online.​

    Utopia42 is not structured into a profit-generating model. Therefore, it is the responsibility of the founders to transition volunteers and consumers into a financially sound operational structure. Preliminary budget numbers suggest that this is possible through careful planning and spreading startup costs out over the course of the first fiscal year. Financial projections are based on a low-cost marketing strategy initially designed to target already active gamers. Financial projections are based on the assumption that 3,000 active users will subscribe to the service on a monthly basis and that each quarter will see substantial amounts of additional subscribing users. Budget items such as employee benefits, payroll costs, payroll taxes, and administrative expenses are amortized over the year, but monthly cash flow projections indicate a deficit which will necessitate cash from outside sources until approximately 6-7,000 additional subscribers are added. ​

    Community participants are interested in creating and maintaining a self-governing organization that promotes public good with transparency and integrity and reinvests its profits in enhancing its services. To this end, Utopia42’s business model and strategic plan will place a heavy emphasis on developing and promoting the internal and external cultural values envisioned in its creation. Participants will be provided with opportunities to be reminded of Utopia 42’s core mission, vision, and values, and will be offered the opportunity to participate in manifesting these within their interactions as a part of the community. ​

    Utopia42  is an online community that provides its consumers with a unique virtual discussion experience unlike any other available. The community caters to online gamers and is based on a dedicated paid group of moderators who maintain the community standards for discussion and uphold the organizational structure. The potential market for this concept includes all aspects of online gaming where voice communications is encouraged and the values and principles of Utopia42. The business concept behind Utopia42 is to encourage community members with an interest in enhancing the community to become moderators by offering a paid wage for moderating. Community members will pay a nominal monthly subscription fee to have access to the superior quality and dedication of the moderated groups. Paid moderators will have guidelines for encouraging community-oriented behavior in the forums and will have the responsibility for maintaining this behavior to the best of their ability. Administrative responsibilities will be small and primarily limited to general management decisions, accounting and budgeting, and facilitating the implementation of the organization’s mission, vision, and values.
