The Battle for Beautiful Business is on.

Fixing capitalism. Creating elegant operating systems for our companies that allow them to be effective, not just efficient. Celebrating humans as anti-machines in an age of machines. Enjoying moments of connection, beauty, and wonder that make “our shared humanity” not just a cliché but something so real that we can touch it.
