The purpose driven innovation
and venture studio

We build high growth businesses that fix the dysfunctions of current business models and address societal and planetary needs.

Circular Plays

B2C and B2B business models that can accelerate and enable "circularity" across your ecosystem.

We build circular businesses across all industries. Our focus is on platform business models that can optimise supply chains, create secondary markets, sharing economies, or provide the right data platforms to enable new transactions.

Circular businesses optimise ecosystems through digitising and connecting relevant stakeholders. They include platforms and SaaS tools and are already proving their worth. Our experience in platform business models and circular economy drives us in this direction. 

We work with companies regardless of industry. We believe that every industry and ecosystem has a number of opportunities to build great ventures

We have developed several industry focused programmes as a result of decades of experience in these areas, access to a strong network of experts and investors, and a strong need from the market to innovate
