Traceability requires a transformative approach to technology investments and partnerships

Nearly one-third of global food production is wasted while chronic malnutrition effects 800 million people daily. Western countries receive 75% of global food and agriculture investments despite pressing challenges in developing countries.

Building incentives for business when creating policies for climate change

We are advising governments to use climate change policy as an opportunity to help drive private sector activity into innovative solutions. We believe governments should be playing a key role in attracting investments and helping facilitate the overall profitability of solutions.

Creating partnerships and innovation ecosystems with competitors is the only way to drive transformational change

Transformational innovation and disruption across major industries, has very less to do with individuals and specific technological breakthroughs and everything to do with complex systems, partnerships and supply chains aligning together.

What we think: Our philosophy

We believe the conventional approaches to tackling social challenges; through the deployment of NGO’s, governments and philanthropy, have failed to make fast enough progress.

Simultaneously, the conventional narrative has also emphasized a trade-off between social impact and profit, with businesses only making a profit at a social cost. We believe the reverse is true. Business creates wealth when it meets a need at a profit, and the profit ensures infinite scalability for maximum impact and penetration. We believe business holds the key to addressing our biggest problems and we are here to support them.

Our values

We are a global strategy consultancy firm serving pioneers and disruptors to address their most critical challenges.

Understanding the conditions with which successful innovation can flourish is not a simple task.


Our focus is to help organisations embrace change to empower innovation, to make the next iteration infinitely better than what proceeded it.


For us, transparency means being honest with our partners and being able to tell them when we cannot add value. We challenge our partners and expect them to do the same, to discuss and to improving how we work to build value for our partners.


We are committed to performance with integrity. Doing what is right for our partners is at the heart of every decision we make. In doing so, we demonstrate integrity in action, at every level, every day.


Everyday is an education, our team are continually building their skills to ensure that they are prepared to help you execute your organisations changes.
