PEOPLE HAVE IRREVERSIBLY MODIFIED THEIR CONSUMPTION HABITS & CHARACTERISTICS.

We are witnessing a collective consciousness shift globally, and the vast majority of businesses and markets are seeking out alternatives to 20th century business logic and the long history of green washing, dishonest marketing strategies and bullshit to meet this emerging customer demand.

The courage to make sense of reality

null

ONLY THOSE WHO CAN UNLEASH THE SOLUTIONS, CREATIVITY AND INNOVATION FOUND IN NEW BUSINESS AND LEADERSHIP MODELS WILL PROSPER.

WHAT IS EVOLUTIONARY INNOVATION?

Fauves focuses on the design and creation of decentralized, semi-decentralized, distributive, transparent and open platforms that return economic value to local and regional communities, promoting independent, diverse, autonomous or semi-autonomous, innovative, transparent and resilient economies.

TAKE A LOOK ON HOW WE HELPED THESE COMPANIES TO TAKE NEW BOLD APPROACHES

The passageway and entry keys to these new markets are insurgent and social innovation, automation, sovereignty over data, flexible use of AI and ML for the benefit of people, and collaborative design.

The successful business practices of this millennium will emerge from a disruption of common sense notions that encompass the design and application of: data, technology, media, innovation, leadership, community, strategy and decision making.

FAUVES HAS BUILT A HOLISTIC APPROACH THAT SUPPORTS THE IMMEDIATE APPLICATION OF THESE NEW PRACTICES

We guide you through six steps to rethink and reconfigure the future. We call this the Fauves Dojo.

01

CHALLENGE

Creativity is the ability to imagine and create things that change reality, not reinforce it.

02

ANALYZE

Common sense practices in our world blunt, control, undermine and commoditize creativity.

03

UNHOOK

Only the outcast, the renegade, the outsider is free enough to tap into creative intelligence and deal effectively with the chaos that is our current reality.

04

DIVE IN

Master creative intelligence, use it to uproot, analyze and shift incoherent common sense practices. Get free.

05

MATERIALIZE

Imagine a set of solutions that do not exist; build a committed plan to bring them into existence.

06

SCALE

Creativity as an act of power; scaling solutions that bring us out of chaos and collapse into a world worthy of the next one thousand generations.
