Our Values

Maximize impact

We prioritize projects that will benefit large numbers of socially or economically disadvantaged youth, women, refugees, or other marginalized groups

 

Maintain affordability

We rigorously test our assumptions to prove the affordability and long-term sustainability of each project design before moving forward with any client.  Affordability for all parties is essential.

 

Achieve fair returns

We exclusively work with parties that understand the concept of a fair risk-adjusted return, which ensures all parties feel that they are being treated equally. 

 

Be accountable

We use independent, third party auditing firms early-on in due-diligence to verify projections and affordability metrics to ensure a project remains on track with project cost estimates.

 

Be transparent

We share the major assumptions involved in project design specifications to help clients understand the opportunities and risks of implementation.

 

Collaborate

We work closely with our partners to achieve the goals and outcomes that will genuinely support their mission.  There is no them and us.

 

Have patience

Take a long-term view of success, don't seek quick  gains.  These projects aren’t easy.  Respect that all parties need the time to build trust and a level of comfort with each other.
