"The reasonable man adapts himself to the world, the unreasonable one persists in trying to adapt the world to himself. Therefore all progress depends on the unreasonable man.”
George Bernard Shaw


Better business, better world

We live in a rapidly changing and uncertain, complex and ambiguous world. We urgently need new innovative solutions for complex, social challenges in the field of climate and environment, employment, health care and economic development, education and social cohesion. Solutions that are going to make a real difference and have results on a large scale. 

With Mindt we create new business models, with the primary objective of delivering social impact.

Not philanthropy or charity or naive idealism, we are here to do business. With hardcore data, facts and measurable instruments.

We started Mindt to answer two questions: how do we bring back true value to peoples lives and the lives of those around them? And how do we use companies to achieve it?

If we want to create real value for people and not only for companies and their stakeholders, we need to figure out the new business rules and create the culture to do good.

So, in 2025 we want to have built at least 50 companies all of which have social impact. In addition, there will be a community of passionate, creative and innovative entrepreneurs who give guidance to entrepreneurship by using social impact as a main business driver. We want to build and inspire organizations in all areas to make the world a more beautiful and better place.

People at the center
We focus on higher empathy and discover the softer, people-centric aspects of the contexts we design for. We take a holistic approach to improving the life of people and their surroundings by uncovering latent needs, behaviours and desires, and act upon them.

Beginners mind
An expert may think he/she knows a subject deeply, yet be blinded to new possibilities by his or her preconceived ideas. In contrast, a beginner may see with fresh, unbiased eyes. We cultivate the ability to meet life without holding on to preconceived ideas, interpretations or judgements.

Enjoy the journey
Not only the destination. We believe that when venturing the unknown, celebrating milestones and little successes along the way is very important. Even when the end result might be years ahead.

Greatness is possible
Achieving greatness is hard. Nobody said it was easy. But when humans bring out their best, we strongly believe that extraordinary things will happen. It’s a matter of choice. We can all make a difference by using the power of humanity and creativity to build a positive and sustainable world.
