Teampedia aims to become the world's largest collection of resources – group facilitation and training activities, inspirations, links to organizations that offer services, and more – to facilitate team-building, collaboration, and the spirit of community.
- To collaboratively develop, share and archive the world's largest collection of teambuilding resources
- To bring team leaders, team members, consultants, and facilitators together in a vibrant online community where all contributions are valued
- To help prevent team leaders and organizations from "re-inventing the wheel" every time they want to do a teambuilding activity
- To combine the power of teamwork and technology to generate and refine collective knowledge
- To support those working to promote deeper understanding, improve communication, increase enjoyment, build trust, resolve conflicts, and generally create more efficient, fun, effective, creative, harmonious, inclusive, collaborative, and enjoyable teams and communities
- To generate enough revenue for this website to be self-sustaining (including hosting and development costs)
- To respect copyright and intellectual property rights
