The pursuit of truth drives our vision and our mission. It drives the way we work on both a macro and micro level.
On a macro level, a core truth that drives us is that we, as humans, yearn for justice. Poverty is one of the greatest man-made injustices. We seek knowledge to better understand, challenge and process this and other core truths. We challenge the status quo if the status quo goes against the truth we believe. Fairness is of the essence.
On a micro, operational level, it means that we believe and practice radical transparency. We are highly self-aware of our strengths and our weaknesses. We are data-driven, measuring what is measurable while being cognisant of its limitations. We believe in fostering an environment of respectful disagreement.
We are compassionately honest.
We work hard and we work smart. We are obsessed with long-term productivity and constantly strive towards optimal decision-making.
We believe in innovation that drives outcomes, and not in innovation just for the sake of innovation. So, in that, we are outcome-focused as an entity while embracing our mistakes as stepping stones towards progress – we aim to foster psychological safety coupled with accountability. Outcomes matter, and processes also matter.
We believe in calculated risk-taking with a focus on long-term gratification.
We strive for excellence, we are constantly learning and we don’t give up easily.
We believe that we can create positive change. We trust and give people the benefit of the doubt because we believe most humans are decent.
We find joy in the work we do while addressing the seriousness of the goal we strive to achieve. We are not limited by norms.
We believe optimism is a “can-do” mentality based in reality, not blind faith.
There is always room for hope.
