We support health-conscious entrepreneurship.

The inspiration behind our three focus areas (health, sustainability, and learning) came from Angus Moloney‘s notebooks. He wrote on the topics about which he was most passionate and knew were important to learn in order to grow and lead a fulfilling life. Amongst those were topics like plant-based nutrition, knowing exactly what you’re consuming, new types of physical activity, consciousness and the brain, mental well-being, and so much more. Here’s some inspiration to get the blood flowing!

Health is a state of complete physical, mental, and social well-being,
and not merely the absence of disease or infirmity.
— World Health Organization

A man may esteem himself happy, when that which is his food, is also his medicine.
