To change something, build a new model

To overcome the environmental and social challenges we are facing as humanity, we know it is imperative to unite hands, minds and hearts to support the development of new ways of living on the planet - with courage, respect and willingness to understand and implement structural changes in our cultural and economic models. 

Engaged to contribute in this purpose, Value Flow, Seeds for Sustainability, I4F and SEEDS join efforts to co-found and host a cooperative initiative along with several partners, designed to foster the evolution of an new entrepreneurship movement, guided by principles of an inclusive and life-oriented economy, "glocal" (global + local), regenerative and distributive.

Legacy 
Entrepreneurship

Legacy is relating past, present and future. It refers to the potential elements of a long-term Unique Value Creation, and to the way we integrate it in a systemic perspective: self, place, community.  The tangible and intangible heritage from our place and ancestors is part of our unique presence today. Our actions in the present defines the legacy we will leave for future generations. It is to design business that make real sense.

Network
Investment

We believe the power of a network goes beyond its capacity of sharing information, wisdom and knowledge. A network of entrepreneurs, projects, businesses and community has potencial to provide wider, longer, fairer and more consistent return on investments. We match demands and also promote synergies and joint capacities to generate and share value in multiple forms of capital.

Rigorous Science & Measurements

Trust is a key and precious value. The processess need to be anchored in transparency, scientific rigor, data analysis and measurements. Curious Inquiry & Sensemaking; Living Systems: Nature as our greater teacher; Future Cartographies with the awareness that “the map is not the territory" and models are not the reality.

Cognitive & Nervous
System Technology

Bridging ancient wisdom and modern knowledge. Digital technology combined with human qualities to allow us design social & economic interactions. We focus three areas: Artificial Intelligence at the service of Collaboration; Internet of Things + Human Sensing; Web 3.0: DiFi as a new way of Sharing Value, Responsibility, and Decision-making (governance).
