As sustainability becomes increasingly central to core strategy, business, companies, governments and non-profits alike are recognizing the need for more collaborative approaches to challenges that impact the bottom line; be it financial, social or environmental.
“If you want to go fast go alone, but if you want to go far, go together.” Unknown
Bringing these players together to collaborate on a challenge leads to solutions that offer greater reach, scope and scale, however unconventional opportunities require novel business models, and the creation of new and non-traditional cross-sector partnerships. They require facilitated ‘multiple value’ conversations based on each partner’s unique tradable assets, and they require shepherding to ensure they come to fruition.
The Cazneau Group is building a fundamentally different type of company: one that provides a platform for solving complex sustainability challenges through design thinking, an interdisciplinary perspective, a belief in the power of entrepreneurship, and a commitment to the common good.
With a focus on delivering solutions for real opportunities, the Cazneau Group has the expertise and networks to create real, sustainable and profitable solutions for sustainability. We believe that working with a diverse client base allows for a cross fertilization of ideas through which we can serve all of our clients more effectively.
Founded in 1999, Origo, Inc. was conceived as an online global social capital marketplace, but soon shifted focus to customized consulting and partnership brokerage. Our early consulting had a social enterprise focus, and our search for greater scale and impact inevitably led us to the door of the corporate sector. In early 2010, the Cazneau Group made a strategic investment in Origo, integrating Origo services into the Cazneau Colab Platform.
