Growing a collaborative, mission-driven ecosystem.

We support a thriving ecosystem of partners and ventures to address systemic challenges at scale. 

We know that no organization, on its own, can address the challenges we collectively face. Through building new ventures, taking part in key networks, growing communities, and joining forces with partners, we aim to play a committed but humble role in transforming our economic system.

VENTURES

We build new ventures that address major gaps in the transition to a healthy, restorative economy.

Part of our mission is ensuring we scale up ideas that can have systemic impact. Next to the analytical work of our consulting and institute branches, we produce new technologies and business models that can address key societal gaps. As they become mature, we develop them into their own organizations so they can scale and thrive with a logic and team fits their context.
