A budding entrepreneur wanted to create an investment company focused on Africa with a triple-bottom line.

We helped him define and shape the vision, as well as the values and behaviours he wanted to stand for and demonstrate.

Wanting to ensure he could translate his vision into practice, we tested the principles he had laid out against target investments. This proved to be the bigger challenge since some of the opportunities presented were not in alignment with what he espoused. Of course, he was happy to justify it with the return they would bring.

Using the values, behaviours and desired return he had set for himself, we challenged his thinking and guided him in exploring alternatives. We mapped out the framework that would enable him to navigate future forks in the road and improve his decision making.
