Our Organizing Principles

VALUEx is inspired by three principal sources, which determine the following three bedrock principles.

1. Berkshire Hathaway, Wesco, Warren Buffett, Charlie Munger, Ben Graham et al.

A place where like minded individuals can develop their worldly wisdom, learn to be better investors, and become better people in the process.*

2. Wikipedia / Linux / Firefox and the Open Source revolution

The endeavor is not for profit. Leadership comes from the group of individuals who are in the best position to contribute and who can best understand and develop the mission and the goals.

3. Chris Anderson / TED / Ideas worth Sharing

Content and speakers are selected using the same principle applied at TED, where the most successful talks are delivered by inspiring speakers in an inspiring way. A strict time format ensures that the speakers deliver their most valuable ideas promptly. The focus is on “Ideas worth sharing”, rather than pitching products / companies / one’s own services.

* VALUEx has been in large part inspired by the Colbeh dinners – organized for a certain period in New York by Shai Dardashti at Colbeh restaurant*
