Our Mission

Be1More prioritizes it's efforts to raise awareness, connect, and further enable grass-roots initiatives based on sustainability and empowerment. Combining humanitarian efforts with entrepreneurial mindsets, Be1More serves as a hub for others to make a social impact.


Why Philosophy: “Teach a man to fish” To inspire the next generation of global thinkers and doers and create an ecosystem in which ideas are made realities and action is taken.


Social entrepreneurs and civic innovators are uniquely positioned to address targeted problem areas in society. However in the current economic and business environment relatively few social organizations have been able to achieve the levels of scale required to truly make an impact and this is mostly due to the lack of structural and financial support and operational capacity needed to achieve expansion, create broad impacts, and realize growth potential. The services that Be1More provides are designed to bridge that gap and act as a functional way to support and generate innovation and produce measurable solutions to social problems.


Our efforts fall into 3 major roles, Culture building, Consulting incubation an incubation (The Lab), and finally content generation (Creative) Within these 3 pillars is where we at Be1More can utilize our skills to the fullest and create the biggest impact within the social sector, it’s where our unique expertise combined with our innovative culture can build the next generation of impact leaders. .
