Change the world

As followers of Jesus, we believe we're called to be a part of God's redemptive movement.

We also believe startups can create incredible impact both socially and culturally.

We strive to merge these ideas, creating startups that are in line with this redemptive movement that makes the world more as God intended it to be.
