Where Business is

a Force for Good

This moment in history has disrupted ‘business as usual’. It is a great opportunity to press reboot and build companies that truly create a better future – for all of humanity, not just the few.

Message From Our Founder

Support Through the Crisis

For too many years, companies and ‘leaders’ have paid lip service to sustainability and building companies with purpose. The reality is there is a stark difference between what companies say and what companies do. The current crisis is highlighting weaknesses in our current practices, but also highlighting what is possible when we all come together. It is this mindset, creativity, leadership and collaboration we need to harness going forward. We are here to help you through this crisis, so get in touch if you need help. In the meantime, stay safe, stay well, stay home – all significant steps in being a force for good.

Impact & Sustainability

Sustainability is not a nice to have but a must-have. We apply ESG principles, GRI standards and our own researched methodology, AMANI when evaluating prospective companies. We look for consistency between what a company says, what a company does and their ability to deliver. This includes: sound financials, proper leadership, fair practices, and impact across the full value chain, people and society.

Where Founders become Leaders

Being a founder is one thing, but being a CEO and the leader of a growing business is another. We love the founders we work with and help them become great CEOs (or develop the humility and smarts to know when it’s time to step aside).

Our Circle

We work with a variety of partners, including family offices, investors, family businesses, accelerators and startups. An ecosystem of partners facing disruption or succession, and want to use that opportunity to align their companies and investments with their values, setting themselves up to thrive in the long run.

Strategic Thinking

We help them think through future trends, impact on business and society, resulting opportunities and the right ones to focus on. We develop specific strategies to best tackle those opportunities. Solutions have included innovation challenges, joint ventures with startups and reorienting leadership teams.

Stellar Teams

Our strength is building stellar teams – not just people in the company, but the stakeholder ecosystem – the people and partners needed to deliver. We map and align the strategic interests and values of  the various parties, as well as their level of appetite and commitment. It’s not just about people – it’s about the right people.
