About Pendo

After a year of exploration into areas such as complementary currencies and hundreds of sharing economies we decided to develop our own Social Exchange Platform. As simple as the idea started out, the complex it got during the following months. Many friends provided new insights and constructive feedback along the way. All are mentioned below by name and we are indebted for their patient, enthusiasm and support.


Pendo facilitates social capital in a cooperative economy. It does so by providing a financial instrument that empowers individuals and communities to exchange their talents and wealth.


Pendo believes in this world where meaningful work creates real value for the benefit of everyone.
