I wanted to help make the world a better place. While being concerned about making the right choices, I was guided by your expertise that you keep at the forefront of everything you do. All this in confidence, with great discretion and with the mentoring of a demanding team. I also liked the idea of connecting our energies and means with other families.

Foundations & Venture Philanthropy
Management of Foundations :
Project Selection and Monitoring:
We identify, analyse and recommend high-quality projects which offer innovative and relevant solutions in their respective sectors. Once the projects are selected, we accompany them and strengthen their capacities to achieve a sustainable impact.
Management of the foundation:
We ensure a dynamic management of the foundation through the organization of board meetings and field trips. Similarly, we ensure internal and external communication, the involvement of family members (including the next generations) or employees, and skills patronage.
We have a deep understanding of the different thematic domains in order to guarantee a relevant selection of the most promising solutions.
We define the intended impact, help to co-develop a Theory of Change, and assess the potential of the supported projects and foundations to contribute to lasting changes.
We organize the governance of the foundation and the meetings, as well as the ad hoc administrative and financial follow-up.
We provide strategic consulting to current foundations.
Creation and structuring of a foundation:
We work on defining the objectives, on creating the legal structure, on identifying an ambitious impact strategy, and on setting up an efficient governance.
Strategic and thematic consulting:
Our missions vary from client to client. We are working on family and employee engagement, partnership building (i.e. collective impact), as well as sourcing and evaluating the impact of the projects.
We provide training and workshops to families and family offices who wish to discover the world of philanthropy and venture philanthropy.
Sustainability, CSR and Impact Strategy
We assist in the definition of the company’s societal mission, the involvement of all stakeholders, and in the implementation of the necessary activities to reach those objectives.
We organize the critical analysis of the Environmental, Social and Governance criteria of a company and we establish recommendations for improvement.
We help organizations to obtain B-Corp certification.
Evaluating impact makes it possible to adapt one’s strategy over the years. We help foundations and investment funds to implement their Theory of Change. This tool guides them to adapt their impact strategy and increase the relevance of their actions.
We offer our clients a wide range of training in line with our expertise.
