Your new Home on the Web

Understory is a publishing platform 
built for the next generation of the Web.

Micro-platforms built for Creators, owned by Creators.

EXPLORE OUR DIGITAL GARDEN

Understory gives you a space to tell your story. A space to grow. A space to flourish. A space that you own, that you control, that you cultivate.

In a world of walled gardens, roam free.

We're tired of our data being walled off into third-party siloes. It's time for us to reclaim the power of our data and create a stable home for our identities and content online.

We give every creator the power to build their own websites, communities, and micro-platforms.

No code, just creation.

Find your people

Understory believes that developing our ideas is a never-ending, continuous journey, and who we meet along the way is what matters. We give you the power to build your own spaces online, and find and connect with other people who share your ideas.

You are unique — and your online spaces should be too. Social media boxes us into prescriptive ideas of who we are to make it easier to collect advertising revenue, while exploiting your data and content in the process. We make it easier to express yourself in a way that you design, in a way that you control.

Say goodbye to social networks. Say hello to micro-platforms.

Organize, Together.

Our brains work better together. That's why we're building a content management system that allows you to collaborate and share ideas across communities. No more siloes, no more walls.

Unlock your creative process and build an audience around your ideas by sharing and collaborating with other folks in your space.

Together, we start to see the whole picture

Understory combines the power of lightweight web-publishing with co-operative data ownership made possible by Solid, creating a whole new way to access and build the web that's accessible to everyone regardless of their ability to write code.

Grow Your Mind

Plant the seeds of your ideas, and nurture them over time. We help you connect the dots and unlock the power of building a second digital brain.

Unlike other knowledge management tools, we design products built for the creator brain. Because creators don't think in code.

Own Your Data

We believe everyone should have control over their data. After all, it's what makes us "us" online. Building a space for yourself or your community online shouldn't mean handing over the keys to your identity.

Solid makes this possible.
Find out how.

Link Your Ideas

Humans are social, and our communities are social too. We make it easy to connect across the borders of your communities so that we can all grow towards collective knowledge.

One identity.
Infinite communities.
