Why we're here
We believe that accelerating the impact economy will power new economic growth and help solve the world’s most important social and environmental challenges.
In 2018, we looked across the global impact landscape and saw the world’s most important social and environmental systems, such as education, healthcare, energy and environmental sustainability, being forced to make critical decisions and complex trade-offs without sufficiently dedicated, trusted or global market intelligence.
The stakes have never been higher, nor the opportunity greater. Governments, academia, firms and investors around the world need relevant, trusted and globally connected data and insights to inform decisions and actions that will shape the future of humanity. We saw a need for a different kind of technology to power decisions that matter, and we knew it would take a different kind of company to build it.
That’s why we founded HolonIQ.
Holon (philosophy). ὅλον. An evolving and self organizing system. Where each part is simultaneously whole and part of something bigger.
We first wrote these four values when we started HolonIQ. Not for marketing purposes, but to describe how we aspired every day to operate and to list the behaviors we thought it would take to build the world’s smartest source of global impact intelligence.
Interested in everything around us and how to make it better.
We work together always.
We approach even hard situations with a smile.
Constantly pushing the boundaries of what has been done before.
We are a global team, based in New York with offices in London and Sydney and team members around the world from Colombia to Sri Lanka and beyond. More than 50% of our team are women and more than 50% are from non-white backgrounds. We speak (and cook) Chinese, English, French, German, Indian, Italian, Korean, Japanese, Portuguese, Sinhalese and Spanish. Our Co-CEOs, Maria Spies and Patrick Brothers, are the co-founders and their respective family offices are our sole investors.
With Hubs in New York, London and Sydney and team members and partners on every continent, HolonIQ focuses on leveraging our analytics capabilities to generate insights and solve complex strategic problems for impact leaders around the world. From Analysts, Engineers and hard core Data Science folks, to the Customer Success, Insights, Marketing and Events teams, HolonIQ is focused on building a supportive, adaptive, creative and high performing culture, laser-focused on our mission to be the smartest source of market intelligence on the global impact economy.
