Powering Purpose-driven Innovation

Founder's Story

Hi, We’re Tony and Alex, we founded RampRate in 2000 on the premise of elevating the way business does business. We could take the same connections that allowed us to cut 24% of each IT budget we touched and use them to kick down the barriers for tech innovators. We could take the same business planning rigor that we used to guide Sony, McKinsey, Microsoft or Intel on entering new markets and use it to help impact-driven startups reach their potential.

So that’s what we’re doing today – we find the next unicorns and gatekeepers to impact that will not just earn millions yet better millions of lives. We grok their vision while putting them through bootcamp to be ready for life-changing opportunities. And then we kick down the barriers to their success by connecting them with our Syzygy ecosystem and leveraging the trust we’ve built in the Fortune 1000 over 20 plus years to create opportunities few others can access.

The purpose driven economy is here. And its leaders, in one way or another, will be powered by Syzygy Impact, powered by RampRate.

Our Vision

We build an Ecosystem of impact-preneurs and trailblazers powered by opportunities, resources, innovation and human spirit

Our Core Values & Principles of Engagement

In order to meaningfully live our company values with our clients and in terms of our services and products, we must be agile, efficient, and entrepreneurial. While these are common buzzwords in the startup space, they have distinct meanings here at Syzygy Impact.

We aren’t afraid to say that not every instance of just and sustainable business practices brings immediate benefits. In short, not everything is a “win-win” and sometimes tradeoffs are needed.
