mike-swiftHey there. My name is Mike and I’m an information explorer and solutions finder.

I created Value Pivot to explore the world of sharing platforms, product service systems, virtualization, cradle to cradle design, and industrial ecology.

While navigating the world of circular economies and benefit corporations I aim to inspire a new generation of startup founders to implement innovative business models, product designs, and technologies that decouple growth from the consumption of finite resources.

Why startups? Startups are agile, innovative and can scale to have the maximum positive impact on people and planet.

By harnessing innovative business models, new product designs, and breakthrough technologies startups can redefine value creation to take into consideration externalized costs, natural capital, and the needs of people and communities.
