OUR STORY

Who we are

ConsciousGrowth is building the first Conscious Entrepreneurship Bank with founder-friendly, non-dilutive lending as its first application. Our vision is to inspire and incentivize Conscious Entrepreneurship via next-generation Financial products and services.

We currently support founders with 10k - 1m in founder-friendly funding - all without asking for equity, board seats, personal guarantees or warrants. We thereby enable them to stay more in control of their business and to focus on what matters most to them: building a great company.

What we believe

 

Given the convergence of the environmental and socio-economic crisis, we believe that businesses and our economy at large will need to transform towards higher responsibility, sustainability and impact to survive and thrive in the coming decades. With ConsciousGrowth we want to catalyze and accelerate this movement towards Conscious Entrepreneurship by offering next-generation Banking and Finance products, helping entrepreneurs to align their businesses with their values.
 

With founder-friendly financings as our first application, we empower entrepreneurs to be more in control of their company - and by extension, to be more autonomous and independent as business owners. While our funding decisions are primarily based on financial data - we connect to Sales, Marketing and Bank Accounts via API - we also take sustainability and impact factors into account.

Our Team

ConsciousGrowth has been built by a team of talented professionals from leading technology and investment companies including Rocket Internet, Credit Agricole, Deutsche Bank, and Goldman Sachs.
