We believe that all businesses should contribute to a positive human future. Our ‘return’ model includes three integrated components: Head, Hip and Heart. ‘Head’ (sharing the benefit of decades of creating solutions), ‘Hip’ (capital), and ‘Heart’ (passion to execute and a desire to make a difference). When these attributes are applied to social enterprise and philanthropic pursuits, we trust the world becomes a better place.
“We make a living by what we get; we make a life by what we give.”
