Final Girl Press

Structure

We’re all about challenging norms and assumptions, and a prevalent pair of these in the western, capitalistic world are:

  1. Non-profits are nice & friendly but lack financial strength
  2. For-profits tend to become evil and terrible as they accumulate financial strength

Final Girl Press aims to be a for-profit, private entity that operates with the heart of a non-profit. We’d like our contributors and employees to enjoy the benefits that a private company can offer, while making sure the way we earn, report and distribute cash and profits is extremely transparent.

The Eyeball System

As an early stage project, with contributors who are all part-time, we have precious little funds. Therefore, we’re using a thematically adapted version of Mike Moyer’s Slicing Pie system to compensate all current and future contributors in sweat equity… which we call “Eyeballs.”

Have a look at the one-page explainer doc here.
