Enabling The Economy To Take On Humanity's Biggest Challenges
Allmende is an alliance of forward thinking business leaders, united under the conviction that it is time for the private sector to step up and embrace its responsibility to drive growth & prosperity for all and tackle the biggest socio-economic challenges of our time.
Through awareness, education & creating opportunities we enable fellow entrepreneurs to harness the power of socio-economic transformation, facilitating the evolution into what we call a “Good Business” - businesses with a strong purpose, a humanized brand and steady, innovative and sustainable growth.
Changing The Economic Paradigm To Drive Growth & Prosperity For All
The world is craving for a new socio-economic model. One that works for the many, not the few.
One that treats the only ecosystem we have with respect & dignity. One that leverages our resources and talents for a higher purpose - one beyond shareholder value and the accumulation of wealth.
Allmende sets out to leverage core-principles of newest academic findings, shared experiences of some of the most forward thinking companies and the high potential of a new generation of entrepreneurs to drive growth & prosperity under the umbrella of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals for all.
