  • The rise of the decentralized industry

    It seems as if the capital systems that fund the current way of doing business reward quantity over quality, profit over shared prosperity, and hype over sustainable growth.

Despite the well-intended efforts, it has been difficult to measure the social impact of sustainable initiatives and ventures.
