Nerd Initiative Mission & Values

Nerd Initiative

Nerd Initiative a community of creators, assembling for the first time ever to share our content and ideas. We are a platform, a safe space to discuss, debate, and talk about fandom. With so much toxicity online today, we are a place to create without fear, and with a “Good Vibes Only” culture. We actively encourage constructive discussions, ideas, all voices and points of view.

Nerd Initiative is positive, inclusive, relevant, and thought-provoking. These values are at the core of true fandom.

After all, we are just some nerds having fun!
