The Western world is in the midst of a global megatrend. Major companies are staking their role in solving global challenges: from health and wellness to housing, climate change to social inclusion.

Here in Australia, companies are measuring and understanding their social impact in order to develop products and services that do good and sell well, work more collaboratively with suppliers and other stakeholders, and attract the best and most engaged people. Non profits and government are moving quickly to embrace the new opportunity of working together with shared purpose.

This new era of shared value means greater commitment and often greater investment in return for sustainable and scalable growth. And it needs new tools, models and thinking to achieve its potential for business and society.

We uncover and create opportunities for social innovation and business growth. Using social research and human centred design to understand and define needs, we develop business strategies, initiatives, services and campaigns that create measurable social impact and financial returns.

With deep knowledge of the sectors we work and invest in, we find new solutions to entrenched and emerging social problems that intersect with market and economic opportunities.

We partner with diverse organisations – separately and in dynamic partnerships – to understand and reach people, innovate products or services, improve access and efficiency, and scale returns.
