The 90's Ape Club team is excited to introduce their collection of characters inspired from the 90's which have been designed by award winning Artist Keivo, who was named Young Cannes Lions Global 2021 Winner in Digital Art.
The 90's was a magical time – the birth of the internet created the innovation of the website and email with the rise of CompuServe, Prodigy, AOL and more.
For the ﬁrst time, people could make friends around the globe in a much more meaningful and connected way – not through pen pal letters or the digital equivalent of bulletin boards, but instead through chat rooms and GeoCities and TriPod – searches still had to be done through HotBot or AltaVista and your brand new 28.8 baud model on your brand new Intel Pentium machine running Windows 95 was Rad and L33T.
For many of us, culture and music reached a pinnacle – MTV was still playing music videos. You probably still listen to the music from that age - 2Pac and Biggie, WuTang and Big L – you remember Ja Rule and DMX, Brittany and No Doubt – Nirvana and Soundgarden and STP and when you hear Jock Jamz you're instantly transported back to a grade school or high school sports game – or maybe Mariah Carey's “Hero” comes on the radio and you remember your ﬁrst slow dances at the 8th grade mixer or maybe just remember watching Dennis Rodman and Michael Jordan go HAM on the court – or the bright neon scrunchies and Hot Topic studded belts or chain wallets on JNCO pants that sagged so low they deﬁed the physics being taught in your high school classroom.
Sound familiar? You might just be a 90s kid – or maybe you wish you were. The 90s Ape Club was created as a place for 90s kids (both in age and spirit) to come together for the next big rise of the internet: into the Metaverse.
Their goal is to rekindle that nostalgia and control our own destiny in the Metaverse with multicultural collaboration, 90s themed parties around the globe, and building an impassioned vision of the future. They want to make sure that this important era is preserved on the blockchain forever – and you can be part of it.
The collection contains 5,555 apes generated by Artiﬁcial Intelligence. The ﬁrst 1,000 were minted in the OG mint and boast special Genesis traits, making them extremely rare.
What was the mint price for Genesis Apes? 0.055 ETH
What will be the mint price for presale and public sale? Presale: 0.06 ETH Public sale: 0.08 ETH
Whitelisted members can mint up to 3 Apes per wallet during presale.
Any Apes that are not minted by whitelist members will be available in the public mint. During this mint, users will be able to purchase up to 10 Apes per wallet.
Being a 90's Ape Club holder oﬀers a number of impressive utilities as shown below:
The team has proposed 2 NFT conferences and meetups in 2022 exclusively for holders. One of these meet-ups will be held in early August in Slovenia while the other will be held in North America with the exact location TBA. Holders will also attend special online NFT conferences for members that can't attend the IRL conferences. The goal is to share experiences and knowledge with the members as well as educate them about topics such as mental health and security in the NFT space, as well as the future of the metaverse.
The team are currently developing their exclusive P2E game which is set in an alternative 1991 Hollywood called ‘Apewood'. You will assume the role of your NFT hero on a revenge rampage against the underworld. It will be inspired by some of GameBoys classics back in the 90's. Teasers of the game will be being released to the community in the near future. The game is set to be released in Q4. Alpha The team will also oﬀer holders an alpha channel where they will have up-to-date information about existing and upcoming projects, exclusive whitelist opportunities, alpha alerts, special giveaways, and a host of other valuable information and beneﬁts.

Lynda Gratton, Professor of Management Practice at London Business School and founder of HSM Advisory comments "We are pleased to be working with our partner Fujitsu to conduct this very important study. Through a series of interviews and focus group sessions conducted as input to this report, we gained new insights into how companies and managers are responding to the shift to hybrid work."
Hiroki Hiramatsu, CHRO at Fujitsu Limited comments, "With our successful 'Work Life Shift' initiative, Fujitsu has demonstrated its global leadership in the development and execution of new work styles that empower employees to realize their purpose, as well as the company's. As we strive to make hybrid working a reality, we remain focused on building autonomy and mutual trust between employees and the company. This report reflects our hope that the efforts of Fujitsu and HSM Advisory will contribute to the wellbeing and creativity of organizations and serve as a model for other organizations exploring new ways of working."
Moving forward, HSM Advisory and Fujitsu will continue to research, demonstrate, and implement hybrid working models that improve employee wellbeing and bring together diverse talent to drive innovation in the workplace and beyond.
A paradigm shift in the ways we work
The onset of the COVID-19 pandemic has served as a catalyst for change, challenging our most basic assumptions about how, when, and where we work. In response, many organizations have shifted to hybrid working, as employees grapple with the challenges of collaborating effectively across differences in both time and place. At the same time, with many employees enjoying greater autonomy, some organizations have leveraged the freedoms and flexibility offered by hybrid working models as a way to stand out amidst an increasingly competitive global labor market.
Designing new ways of working that drive both performance and wellbeing now represents a key concern for organizations looking to attract and retain top talent.
Survey Report Summary
HSM Advisory and Fujitsu began a joint study in August 2021 to gain better insight into these themes. In this joint study, Fujitsu and HSM Advisory surveyed how leaders, employees, and organizations are responding to the challenges and opportunities of hybrid work. Adopting a cross-organizational, global approach, we have developed a Sustainable High Performance model to support organizations in the redesign of work.
Through this research, we hope to share best practice and insights into redesigning work.
The research, undertaken in partnership with HSM Advisory from August to November 2021, consisted of interviews with 9 Fujitsu Leaders and 46 Fujitsu employees, and 4 Fujitsu Client leaders. This was followed by a survey, shared broadly through Fujitsu and HSM networks, which gathered data about the experiences of an additional 200 people. Further insights were derived from 8 leaders from HSM advisory partnerships.
Notes to editors: Fujitsu introduced its own "Work Life Shift" initiative in July 2020 to redefine working styles for thousands of its employees. As employees worked from home, Fujitsu aimed to ensure that their experience was empowering, productive and creative, with the goal of boosting innovation and delivering new value to customers.

Approximately 126,000 Fujitsu people support customers in more than 100 countries. We use our experience and the power of ICT to shape the future of society with our customers.
