• The tribe of impact tech startup leaders

    to go beyond

    phrasal verb


    : to do more than is expected or required

    : leaving every person, place & situation better than you find them

    : to provide more than equal value

    : to give more than you take

  • Are you one of us?

    Impact Tech Startup Leaders have a unique set of challenges.
    Beyond the challenges every entrepreneur & investor has, they an additional level of complication because they choose to think of the social & environmental impact of

    their decisions.

    Exponential change is here.

    What future do you want to help shape?

    Today, more than ever before, humanity is able to shape the future.

    We are close to the inflection points of multiple, critical challenges such as global warming, automation and increasing inequality.

    We can't leave it to the kids...

    What we do NOW matters.

    Imagine if we worked together to solve the world’s biggest challenges.

    Surround yourself with people:

    Who have the same values as you.
    Who want to create a better future for everyone.
    Who believe what you believe.

    Who are building companies to drive positive change.

    Who are givers.
    Who help you achieve your goals.
    Who challenge & inspire you to be greater.

  • Together, we can.

    “I just found my tribe.”

    This is the most powerful and gratifying feedback we receive.
    This is our purpose. Our mission. Our why.
    What gets us out of bed in the morning. What drives us when we’re on the lows of the startup roller coaster (yeah, we know this ride well).
    We are building a tribe of impact startup leaders.
    Leaders who understand that true success is much more than just making money (though, that’s important too), fame or influence.
    True success is being a key part of helping humanity navigate it’s key challenges.

    How we help.

    1. We provide Impact Tech Startup Leaders with a tribe of peers & the best support system to have personal, business and impact success.

    2. We help our members with the 5 key resources: Relationships, Time, Money, Energy & Knowledge.
      You are the average of the 5 people closest to you and it's not what you know but who knows you that matters the most.

    3. We leverage technology that plugs into your existing habits so you don’t have to change what you do, to benefit from, and engage with our tribe.

    4. We design events and retreats following behavioral psychology to help our members connect deeply immediately.

  • Become a member of the tribe

    We have multiple ways for you to Go Beyond.

    Become part of a global community.

    Not just another membership anyone can join, our tribe is only for people who don't just talk about having a positive impact but live it.


    Remote so we don't limit where you can create impact.

    When you're pushing a stone up a hill (being an entrepreneur), it helps to have a whole team to support you.
    We curate each mastermind group to ensure each member is relevant to the others with their expertise and experience.


    Improve the world while you improve yourself.

    Our retreats are a combination of mastermind, impact and fun!

    We work with local impact partners in the beautiful locations of our retreats & spend time learning about what they do & helping them so you know you're giving back while you're growing.


    Get monthly access to relationships around the world & decades of startup leadership experience.

    We can work with you to find the right adviser for your startup from within our tribe or team.

    The benefit of working with us rather than an individual is that you get access to all of our personal relationships combined.

  • How do we define “Impact”?

    We know that impact is a loaded word, widely used and with many definitions.
    This is what we mean when we say it.

    Increasing Global Quality of Life.

    We believe, the long term quality of life is the most important variable.

    Data & science are giving us a clear understanding of what improves life for people, what doesn't and what true costs are (including the social, environmental and natural resource cost).
    We only work with leaders who's companies can show that they improve the Global Quality of Life.

    CEO & Founder

    James has been helping us in the early start-up phase of our organisation, and I have found it hugely useful to bounce ideas or thoughts in our sessions, drawing on James' experience of scaling companies.

    Bryan Talebi

    CEO & Founder

    I've now known Nick well for a few years. I have been to many of his events and he was a valuable part of helping me launch my impact startup.

    He is consistently a professional asset as well as a good friend and introduced me to some of the best impact startup people I know.

    Sam Harris Founder

    James coached me when I was at a difficult stage in my business. He really helped me get clarity on my thoughts. I've also had some real breakthroughs during his events, especially around idea generation and understanding the importance of archetypes.

    Neil Yeoh

    (formerly) Echoing Green

    I've met many impact entrepreneurs and super connectors but Nick is one of the most genuine givers.
    While I was with Echoing Green, we partnered for an event and I was impressed with not just the people he brought in, but the feedback I got from the people who I invited about the quality of the event and the attendees.

  • We're Excited to hear from you!
