We work with entrepreneurs who need a sounding board to test uncertain and possibly game-changing (or possibly lousy) ideas in a judgment-free space. Entrepreneurs who need to have that “one conversation” to realign strategy and reset priorities. Entrepreneurs who need a friend in the foxhole who can provide just-in-time wisdom, perspective, knowledge, and networks to help them get out of their own way and get moving faster.
We work with investors who understand that those who have the great ideas are not necessarily the team skilled to build the company. Investors who want to protect their portfolio by augmenting the leadership skills and the strategic vision of their CEOs and boards. Investors who need to fix this thing or that thing that they see standing in the way of their CEOs, and who know that the diagnosis and treatment are sometimes better messaged through a trusted third party.
We work with philanthropists deeply committed to a vision of a better world and philanthropists who are just starting out. By engaging their hearts in possibility and their brains in strategy, we help donors maximize effectiveness with gifts large and small, either as single impactful gifts or over a lifetime of smarter giving. We do the leg work, presenting options and making the right introductions so that no time or money is wasted, ensuring that donor money is invested in only the most innovative solutions to intractable social problems.
And we ask them incisively, but empathically. We’re tenacious about pushing through the noise to get real answers that move the work forward.
We are also expert at quickly determining holes in the talent landscape of the c-suite, the board, or the kitchen cabinet.
We curate diverse, global networks that generate value and spark innovation.
