Why we do that?
Glad you ask this question!
We live in challenging times, and
We all want change,
but for us, it is all about
We potentially already have enough ideas to transition towards a more sustainable and fair future, but changing is hard...
...there's hope tho!
We believe that stories can foster the adoption of new behaviours to activate collective change and effectively build a better future.
And we are building an ecosystem where those stories can be created by matching different needs, such as the ones from...
Insanely talented content creators, technologists, architects, designers, gamers, writers, painters, marketing experts, futurists, etc! Who sometimes struggle to find funding, distribution or marketing for their creations.
Ethic brands that understand that companies need a profit, but also for a purpose, and that ultimately, this is the only way to connect with audiences. They need authentic and honest content.
Whose investments in startups that strive to build a better world with their products and services, would highly benefit from more sensitive audiences ready to embrace change. What would happen if a percentage of their investment portfolio was dedicated to relevant content?
