Challenge

The world and all of us in it are facing urgent challenges.

Our models to take them on are not sufficient, and businesses are struggling with conditions and demands in rapid and constant change. There is a cry for practical ways of taking on the overwhelming number of urgent issues – a holistic perspective that acknowledges the interconnectedness and complexity of sustainability, and drives action.

We are all interconnected

The Inter Business Initiative was created to challenge the current structures and ways of viewing business.

We are a knowledge lab, an ongoing collision of thought – developing a framework towards holistic value creation where businesses can act as change agents toward a truly sustainable world.


Welcome to join the conversation

Thinkers and doers from all over the world and from a multitude of fields contribute to exploring Inter Business. We facilitate think tanks, seminars, discussions, collision of thoughts both live and on-line to forge a path towards a world in which humanity thrives as business thrives.

Join the tribe of explorers of future business as a co-creator of Inter Business.

Great, talk to you soon!
