The Collective

Radical /Activist Entrepreneurship = Economic Transformation

Meet the Collective Members!

Every collective member has been deeply engaged in advancing radical entrepreneurship, ecosystem development and social change for at least a decade. We have 200+ years of lived experience between us. We have taken different paths towards the top of the same mountain which means we have very diverse perspectives and viewpoints that underpin our work. We have worked together and collaborated on a number of entrepreneurship ecosystem and  support transformation projects over the years.

As a collective, everyone here is an independent practitioner. This is a non-hierarchical, distributed benefit organization.

Caretaking and administration duties are assigned. But leadership is shared.

Membership in this collective is by invitation only. If you are interested, please let us know by contacting us.
