We Help Startups Make Systemic Impact
by Focusing on the Whole Business Model, the Parts, and their Relationships
The world is changing and it’s changing fast.
Business as usual is struggling to adapt because it is too heavily
invested in all sorts of unsustainable resources, structures and practices.
Startups are the seeds of a new world.
That’s why there is an incredible opportunity for startups to succeed with
systemic principles for sustainability embedded at their core.
“If we continue to look at the land and the world around us just in terms of dollars and cents, we are going to destroy the very things that make that land so precious to us — the very things that keep us alive and healthy.”
David Suzuki, Environmental Activist
There’s a huge gap in the startup eco-system.
Current tools, frameworks or development programmes are simple not enough, because they
do not include social and environmental sustainability from a systemic perspective.
And that’s why millions of startups around the globe keep failing. Of course failing is fine,
but only when you learn from it, adjust and keep moving in the right direction.
So that’s why we started to develop our own tool.

Modern era problems are complex in nature, so is the sustainability challenge. Thus, the linear logic used to create our current situation cannot solve our modern day problems.
The current economic system has placed enormous pressure on the planet while catering to the needs of only about a quarter of the people on it, but over the next decade twice that number will become consumers and producers.
Traditional approaches to business will collapse, and companies will have to develop innovative solutions. That will happen only when executives recognize a simple truth: Sustainability = Innovation.
