Our mission is to initiate systemic change in communities that results in a more inclusive and creative economy by demonstrating financial return and social impact are not mutually exclusive. We do this by deploying a one-pocket approach as a private operating foundation.

We believe true inclusion involves seeing all people (of diverse identities and backgrounds) as valuable and that each person offers unique contributions to our communities and economies.

The economy represents not just an engine for industry, but an opportunity to demonstrate the inalienable dignity of all people. A system that prioritizes people will be more inclusive and creative.

    As individuals, presence is essential to drive empathy, creativity, and balance.

  • We Value Growth & Humility:

    As a team, we view growth as a mindset required to reach our lofty goals and humility as a grounding force.

  • Try New Things

    We strive to think critically and never settle for the safest or most traditional approach. We aren't scared to try something new. Failure is okay.

  • We Value Creativity:

    As a company, we value creativity because creative is what we are meant to be and it is integral to human flourishing.


  • We Value Storytelling:

    We believe storytelling is a powerful way to spark change, pass on ideas, and build empathy.

  • We Value Human Dignity:

    Every decision we make is focused on cultivating the worth and honor of every person.

  • Default to Impact:

    As a team, we take risks not for personal reward but to see change and movement.
