What We Believe

We must cultivate new ideas of what it means to be successful and develop new ways of knowing and honoring ourselves, the natural world, and all the people in our communities. Then, and only then, can we move beyond less bad, and do the good work that is truly needed.

What We Do

We are reimagining traditional business education by prioritizing compassion, wisdom, and ethical integrity, instead of growth, competition, and profit maximization. We aim to develop the whole person behind each enterprise, and help them take actions that honor all the people and places they impact.

Hudson Valley Program

Our primary initiative is cultivating communities of business leaders living and working in and around the Hudson River Watershed. Through the program, we offer tools, practices, support, and community for these leaders to develop and implement projects that aim to have net positive benefit on the people and places of the region.
