Our mission

Our mission is to put ambitious entrepreneurs who are tackling the world’s hardest social and environmental challenges on the road to becoming the businesses of the future. We believe in business as the greatest force for good as by prioritizing positively impacting people’s lives and the environment, they prosper financially.

It’ll take more than 4 months for an impact venture to reach its full potential, but if we start to accelerate the impact of these businesses today, we might just stand a chance of accelerating the rate at which we address some of the world’s most pressing challenges.
