About Faiā

Faiā is a remote-first consultancy specializing in the building, training & advising of blockchain-based communities. The name (Faiā) is Samoan for "to span a divide" (like a bridge).

Since 2013, our founder George Siosi Samuels has been combining his 10+ years of experience with technology and community management across multiple industries including co-working, fintech, and blockchain.

In 2018, he started Faiabrand Pte Ltd ("Faiā") with the hypothesis that 'community' would become increasingly important in the success of all future blockchain-based projects.

Fast-forward to the 2020s, and it certainly seems to hold true with news such as Facebook rebranding to Meta, the meteoric rise of NFT communities, and even the popularity of DAOs.

Below you’ll learn: who we help, what we do, our mission & vision, and team members.

Who we help

We work with growth-to-mature stage companies, who are typically community-driven, with $1m+ in earnings or raised capital.

Our ideal clients usually have a minimum staff of 20+ and a strong desire to better organize, professionalize, or transition to Web3/blockchain.

We only work with owners or professionals who understand the importance of culture. They typically have everything necessary for building sustainable communities but typically lack:

  1. Technical Web3 knowledge
  2. Organizational structures
  3. Time

We are members of the following organizations to help increase blockchain knowledge and innovation:

We also have exclusive access to a plethora of blockchain patents via IPwe.

What do we do

We bridge gaps between communities and blockchain technology. We do this in two ways, our consulting services and accelerators.

Our aim is to maximize knowledge, results, and confidence while minimizing risk, costs, unwanted behaviors, and inefficiencies.

Our 3 key services are:

  1. Community Strategy
  2. Community Management
  3. Community Operations

We offer additional services outside of the above areas for select clients only.

Our vision & mission

We believe that blockchain-based communities are the future.

These communities will push what's possible for Web3 and the "metaverse." They will be ephemeral, token-gated, or extremely micro. We believe this will become the norm between 2030-2040.

Our mission is to educate, train and advise the next generation of blockchain-based community builders through our 5C's:

  1. Code
  2. Culture
  3. Content
  4. Community
  5. Collaboration

Our team

We’re a fully-remote, cross-functional team:

... and various other sub-contractors we pull in on demand.
