SOME GOOD NEWS

WITH HOST JOHN KRASINSKI

5th Element worked with the amazing people at SGN to connect the top-trending, highly-awarded COVID-era YouTube series to purpose-driven brands, like PepsiCo and Starbucks. Watch this clip to better understand the link between purpose and performance.

A FIFTH INDUSTRIAL REVOLUTION

According to Aristotle, the fifth element, distinct from earth, fire, air and water, is exempt from change and decay, and found only in celestial bodies.

5th Element Founding Partner Jim Van Eerden, in an article published by the World Economic Forum and syndicated worldwide, contrasts the focus of the 5th Industrial Revolution in relation to the 4th Industrial Revolution and explains why it matters. And it has something to do with quintessence.

FLOATING IN DARKNESS

Ron Garan, former NASA Astronaut and Co-founder of 5th Element, builds on the success of his first book Orbital Perspective with a powerful new book called Floating In Darkness. Ron’s new book inspires collective action from the perspective of awe and wonder, versus the perspective of fear and divisiveness. Contact us to request a copy of one of Ron’s books, or to schedule his epic multi-media presentation at your next event!

THE SDG CIRCLE COMMUNITY

We believe that relational, cross-silo collaboration is essential to building omniwin partnerships to achieve the UN Sustainable Development Goals. To facilitate that, we created a community of the like-minded, called The SDG Circle.

As a community of brand leaders, institutional donors, impact investors and SDG solution-makers, we participate in some of the world’s most celebrated events relating to socio-economic and environmental impact; and we even help host events all our own. We also work to serve each SDG Circle member with services and experiences personalized to them and their lifework agenda.

In stewarding a client’s wealth, it’s important to know each client’s strategic goals and how they operate, to ensure the ‘right fit, culture add’ individuals are attracted to the firm or to their portfolio companies. P/E firms have exit strategies and processes to increase the value of their portfolio companies. VC’s invest moreso in smaller, minority stakes in startups, where candidates clearly need to know that type of environment. When we work with Family Offices, it’s especially important to understand their investment strategy and goals for maximum financial and social/environmental returns.

Example client-partners include HIG Capital and Sun Capital Partners, Blackstone, Interior Logic Group and a number of prominent Family Offices with which we have designed and implemented global initiatives to advance their chosen impact initiatives.

Example client-partners include Viasat and BioIDC.
