Purpose: Restoring a broken world through business
BraveWave draws inspiration from the longest wave on earth, the pororoca. Once a year during the dry season in Brazil, the earth, moon and sun align such that the pororoca becomes possible. Unlike most waves, it travels up the mighty Amazon River and can reach as far as 500 miles inland upstream.
At BraveWave, we want to shift the tide of market forces. Capitalism is a powerful force that has lifted millions out of poverty, yet it can leave significant collateral damage in its wake. The free market rewards actors that create value as well as those that extract value. It seeks to maximize efficiency at all costs and ultimately creates large imbalances in rewards.
We live in a broken world. Social connectedness has never been stronger and yet social isolation is on the rise. Mass consumerism leaves us discontented with a trail of junk in its wake. Minimum wage employees live below the poverty line to serve us cheap junk food. Many businesses create value, but few target the very brokenness around them. At BraveWave, we model a new business reality through research, consulting and new venture creation.
