Renewable Automation Index
The Index Fund supporting the Renewable Automation technologies that help build abundance sustainably, is the CSQ Research RAI list of companies
30 Years ago, companies like Cisco, Microsoft, Oracle, and others started a wave of technology that landed a world of information in the palm of our hands. This next 30-year wave will be given to those companies that can automate a spectacular sustainable society globally

Aristotle called the American Dream a “Good Life” 2500-years ago. A Meaningful Life, he explained, was one spent in worthwhile projects that build a sustainable society; with communities that had all the basic needs of a Good Life like abundant food, shelter, education, opportunity, transportation, prosperity and security.
The Worthwhile Ventures Fund finances sixteen EconomyTech companies. EconomyTech companies are Advanced Industries that build a Right Plan in Business, Engineering, Finance, and Economics which automate communities and economies sustainably. Our selected EconomyTech companies target 70% of a GDP’s commodity marketplace, build 300 hi-tech jobs – plus contract staff, and share resources across all 16+ companies (PLCs) as needed to reduce a typical Robotics Company Return-on-Investment (ROI) – from a typical 5-year time-frame, down to just 20-months.
Individual Worthwhile Ventures Companies create flexible Private Equity offerings with 20% annual average sustainable gains and a 20-month ROI (by our Realistic Plan – which is based on solid 20-30%-profit operating revenues and a Smart Revenue Ramp-up SRR Risk Mitigation Strategy). Cheque size per PLC is $7.5 to $20 million for SEED or Round-A investment, but a public primary investor was sought initially for reasons explained below. The milestone of >$20M EBITDA is reached in early Year-2 and Maximum Cumulative Cash flow is not required to exceed $66M.
$112M in Series-B Up-Rounds are anticipated within two years predicated on the successful close of $225M (10% ownership); $300M in share-value gains is our Year-3-to-5 Series-D up-round estimate at which time a valuation of Worthwhile PLCs should total approximately $3.7 billion. These estimates assume that none of our most successful hi-tech companies will reach IPO (Initial Public Offerings) before Year-5, however, this might be a pessimistic estimate as the Robotic and Autonomous Delivery Private Equity and IPO marketplaces are trending and our strategic Patents and IP may attract public interest.
Normal capitalization planning permits us to miss cash-flow targets almost four-times without impacting our 20% annual Gains estimates. It should also be noted that i) our management team have a track record that doesn’t miss targets in $2 billion annual technology delivery organizations over 20-years; and ii) none of our industry sectors have failed to produce multi-billion-dollar valuation-companies. If any one of Worthwhile Venture Fund’s sixteen companies reach a two-billion-dollar capitalization within five years, our 20% annual gains estimate multiplies 3-times.
Alan Turing’s 1943 Universal Machine began a 70-year era of automation that is as promising as it has been disruptive. G7 Governments appear universally uncertain about how to support citizens through a steady barrage of job-losses at the same time that the benefits of computer automation are undeniable.
Strategic Planning discussions often conclude that if we do not “shoot where the duck will fly”, and develop self-sustaining automation today, then we will find ourselves purchasing automated imports from China, Germany, and others within five years – and we see this already today.
No other country will spend more for our lower-quality exports – until the failing of our exports have a devastating, destabilizing economic impact similar to the USSR’s 1986 Economic Collapse for this same reason. In a global monetary system, countries must be self-sufficient and they must also monetize their economy by creating export wealth. Failing both risks economic collapse.
To solve these critical problems, CSQ Research – our guiding Think-Tank, compared the production, debt and trade stats of 180 countries and found that 72% are in a collapse-trending today (a “collapse-trending” indicates debt and trade deficits). Analyzing the policies and economies of the other 28% of “Advancing” nations, is a study in sustainable, empirically proven-successful policy – scientifically speaking. Here is what we learned.
Countries with high ExCaps very rarely have economies in a collapse trending – and people live well. The Netherlands’ ExCap is $33,600, Canada is $13,300, and the US is $5,100. The US and Canada are Collapse-trending; Holland is Advancing. When corrected to Holland’s ExCap levels, Canadians would earn $630 billion in new exports annually – that’s a 250% increase in today’s exports. The U.S. side-steps $8 trillion annually by this calculation, and the U.K. loses $1.5 trillion. China’s Economy is Advancing with low ExCap, but their brilliant, Herculean 30-year plan to lift 1.3 billion people out of the stone-age, still showcases a standard-of-living for the average citizen that would be a steep step-backward for G7 nations; low-ExCap, low-opportunity, plus high-inequity was the pervasive economy of a 1000-year medieval dark-age. (Find the stats that we used at http://csq1.org/forums/topic/middle-class-for-power-49-percent-for-prosperity/ and http://csq1.org/forums/topic/the-business-case-for-guaranteed-incomes/).
The discussion casts into sharp relief the very high cost of inequity-levels that prevent a highly productive population. For Canada, $630 billion in new country-wide export revenues makes a compelling Business Case for the 1/10th smaller-cost social supports, and automations that support a Good Life, at a fraction of the cost, and new export wealth while we sleep.
With community automations in basic needs of food, housing, energy, basic goods, Citizens are self-sufficient; they can live good lives that will be little disrupted by economic ups and downs. Automating communities reduces the need for Import spending, it creates exports that citizens can sell, and this approach also enables incomes to be sustained away from overcrowded cities and housing-bubbles; this prevents inflation, which protects pension values, while reducing inequity; and this strengthens democracy’s sustainably too.
Without these automations, and supporting policies, Canada’s Economy is not self-sufficient, so it will need more Imports as it struggles to sell its exports in an increasingly higher-quality, lower-cost international marketplace. As Trade Deficits and Collapse-trendings accelerate, we have few options.
Worthwhile PLCs build these automated Export Economic Injectors, and cost-of-living & import-reducing Community Automations specifically. Our Automated Exports, similar to Germany-owned VW, build robots (automated assembly lines) that build robots (autonomous cars, autonomous lumber farms, etc.) that create high-quality exports and new wealth (http://www.zerohedge.com/news/2015-09-22/why-volkswagen-systematically-important-germany-and-europe).
Our automations adhere to #WPProjects’ list of the 250 technologies needed to create automated communities (see http://csq1.org/world-peace-transition-projects-faq/) and Transition Economics’ TEMature Policy (http://csq1.org/transition-economics-maturity-model/#TEMat); a list of the Economic Policy Injectors consistently employed by “Advancing” nations. Together, this is a Strategic Right Plan (another term of Aristotle’s) for reliably advancing economies, incomes, and spending-power – while we sleep.
Worthwhile Industries build self-sufficient communities profitably with a sustainable approach that mitigates risk by targeting revenue in low-barrier-to-entry very-large markets. Automation is not about denying someone income, or their dream job of delivering flowers, social supports prevent lives spent twisting light-bulbs into assembly-line refrigerators that would otherwise be building productive exports; it’s about restoring poetry, music, arts, culinary arts, life-sciences research, imagery, exploration, discovery, and restoring humanity and freedoms to our society. Ask a 20-year truck driver “Are you ready for a change?“ Eight times of ten, you are going to hear “Yes”.
Strategic Public Investment in interconnected Renewable Automations is a shift in thinking as beneficial as was Henry Ford’s assembly line. It’s a shift that supports worthwhile and profitable industry at the same time that it also harvests the trillions of dollars in economic prosperity left on the table when our technology Investments do not inter-operate to support a Good Life. When Investment Markets prosper at the same time that national Debt, Deficits, Unemployment, Incomes and Trade Deficits are corrected, only then can they be considered sustainable – and worthwhile.
