Creating significant impact on social challenges requires ambitious projects with strong teams. We build them.

 

Our Vision

The best way to tackle social and economic challenges is through sustainable social enterprise. We believe it’s possible to both make money and solve a social challenge. This requires stronger teams which integrate business and entrepreneurial skills earlier in their development.

Our Promise

First, we build Social entreprises. then, …

For social entrepreneurs

We run our own incubation/acceleration programs for early stage social entrepreneurs. We focus on the person first, their idea second.

For incubators & corporates

We build and coach innovation & acceleration programs as well as coaching to participants in finance, marketing, business development, governance, leadership and more.

For impact investors, funds & philanthropists

Through working deeply with entrepreneurs, we validate the team and their project in terms of business model, team dynamics, governance, financing and social impact.

 
 
 

Our innovation

We provide entrepreneurial teams as opposed to engaging as individual experts and most importantly, we invest in people first, projects second. We assess coachability, leadership, authenticity, collaborative skills, openness and not just market potential, business plans and financial projections. We use a dynamic equity model where time and other contributions to social start-ups are rewarded with equity inspired by slicingpie.com.
