Green business is critical for the sustainable development of our planet. SGS focuses on working with scalable, innovative companies active in internet of things, smartgrid, energy efficiency, water, agriculture, and bioenergy.
We live in an age of continual innovation. There are game-changing advancements occurring in areas as diverse as social media, healthcare, agriculture, and heavy industry. SGS works with select companies that are creating new business models that can scale to global markets.
China’s soft and hard power is growing and that creates risk and opportunity. The Middle Kingdom’s rapid expansion since the Mao era is laying the foundation for its companies to become important participants at the regional and global level. This new generation of Chinese entrepreneurs and state owned companies are expanding to international markets and offer opportunities for inbound and outbound partnerships and investment.
Emerging markets fall in and out of favor but a strong and growing middle class and leapfrogging through innovative business models is now a constant. Whether because of resource constraints, lack of existing infrastructure or different approaches to problem solving, entrepreneurs and researchers in emerging and frontier markets are creating innovative products and business models that are often transferable to the US and other industrialized markets.
Sappin Global Strategies brings together a group of global leaders on each one of its initiatives. Drawing from a deep bench of experts in finance, industry, government, think tanks, academia, and non-profits, we create exceptional partnerships for exceptional companies and projects.
