KNOWPIA builds on the importance, lessons, and successes of other online sources of knowledge and adds to that by offering, not only a knowledge repository, but a related blog environment, Q&A space, and community discussion space. The key to sustaining KNOWPIA is the company’s model of sharing profits with all of its contributors. As a California Benefit Corporation, KNOWPIA also supports social causes by allocating 20% of net profits to benefit selected positive social impact organisations. The internet will reach 3.5 billion users in 2018. KNOWPIA enables that community to create and share knowledge.
