We are missionaries. We see a gap between businesses with Catholic values ending up seeking personal righteousness instead of bearing fruits of evangelization through spirituality. Our team comes from both startup and corporate backgrounds with a track record of workspace evangelization.
We incubate aspiring and idea-stage Catholic founders who want to build a startup that would advance their divine calling while evangelizing workers. We serve priests, nuns, and lay people in all industries, from Agriculture, Catholic Products, to Artificial Intelligence. We are a small team comprised of diverse backgrounds in various industries. Our strength is in laser deep reflection of all actions taken to be the best approach we can think of to love Christ with all our being without compromise, this resonate to bring others to Christ effectively without much friction. Our advantage comes from our network of successful Christians and Church institutions who have responded to His missionary calling. We are looking for Christ-centered independent thinkers who are not afraid to challenge the status quo and reject societal norms, while still being obedient to God & His Church.
Employees are attracted to learn about Catholicism when Catholic professionals strive to embody a living and joyful testimony of Christ. We are influencing startup founders through our own Christ-centered environment.
Here are a few incidents that happened to our team members in their workspace: A non-Christian New Yorker asked one of us to pray for her dying uncle, the two went to an empty stairway and recited a short prayer, she then claimed seeing two rays of light, blue and red, and talked about Christianity openly since then. A fallen-away Catholic French manager asked our team member why he remained Catholic despite his sharp mind, the boss later regained part of his faith and celebrated the election of Pope Francis. A Turkish atheist requested one of our team at a company free lunch, if God exists, to please pray for his sick infant and ended up being thankful for it. A Macedonian in a big tech firm who didn't want to talk about faith-related topics asked for a church recommendation to explore Catholicism at a company lunch. An Asian Buddhist employee asked one of us to teach her how to pray the rosary.
Many Catholic communities and programs tend to serve those within their affinity and don’t have close access to non-Christians. During the business incubation process, these founders will learn how to build a Christ-centered corporate culture and a HR framework that allows Catholic Employee-Resource-Groups (ERG). Through these ERGs, your bishops, religious, priests, and lay communities in the diocese will gain a close access to their employees, both Christians and non-Christians, without reducing the conversation to mere universal values while maintaining respectful religious freedom. Non-Christian employees have better opportunities to find fullness in life. Catholic employees will find spiritual nourishment at work. Guest speakers are also proven to be helpful. In 2017, a bishop of Los Angeles gave a talk at Facebook HQ. In 2019, a Carmelite nun gave a talk on contemplation at Google HQ. The event was full of Catholics, non-Catholic Christians, Muslims, Atheists, and other faiths. Catholic programs and lay communities are also the best resources to prepare and remind the faithful of their missionary calling. We help our portfolio companies setup an ERG and connect them with Catholic communities when the time is right. Without a proper ERG, the execution is often inconsistent, unorganized, clashing with important work, violating confidentiality, and suppressing other faiths.
This venture was initiated to advance the cause of Catholicer movement.
