After 20 years, it’s clear that it’s time to “Elevate the Way Business does Business”. “We’ve created a lot of incremental change over the years – saving large buyers millions in IT costs and helping them reinvest it innovation; replacing salesmanship with data-driven decisions, and drastically reducing the cost, time, and risk of IT across the board while providing visibility into CSR / ESG across the supply chain.

However,  the state of the world demands a more transformational approach. So we are launching several new initiatives, focused on social impact in society,  under the brand Syzygy Impact, while also investing and advising transformational and impact-focused companies with the potential to change the world:

    • Aligning  the incentives in the organization with that impact personality to ensure that doing good is everyone’s job
    • Matchmaking with the right partners who believe in the same things you do and will do the right thing without being forced
  • Syzygy Advance – bringing strategic planning skills and the trust that only time can buy, to the most innovative & impact-focused startups, through:
    • Audit of the core claims to ensure transparency & honesty
