The end of the status quo - Shelley Kuipers
A small, personal journey towards a larger Better world.
It’s hard to explain, the mission you have in you as an entrepreneur. It’s raw, organic and all-consuming. You honestly believe that you have a purpose to bring to your teammates, to those who you collaborate and partner with, to the general public to, really, anyone who will listen. You take all necessary risks to push your journey forward… and with that comes new allies, new enemies (of course) and new lands to explore. We’ve always said there was a better way, and, finally, we’ve found that here at Better Ventures.
You can read the ‘The end of the status quo’ article in its entirety on the Better website http://weareparticipation.com/the-end-of-the-status-quo/

WE’RE LOOKING FOR PEOPLE WHO CAN SEE OUT TO THE HORIZON — AND BEYOND.
At Better Ventures, we bring participation-based business models to life for some of the world’s biggest (and most loved) brands. It’s an exciting journey — and a humbling one — especially as we participate in the great disruption that is recreating how businesses operate around the world. The changes we’re seeing are driven by matters of commerce, sure, but also the need for human connection in a fragmented world. These things are increasingly inseparable. And while these changes are being accelerated by our increasingly technology-connected lives they are also a product of the failures of outdated methods, business models and assumptions.
