About Enlightened Capitalism

Enlightened Capitalism is a platform that applies to businesses the wisdom and insights from various spiritual, philosophical, cultural, literary traditions and also from individual experiences of experts in the field, in order to combine sound business practices with external success and internal fulfillment.

Open and free of any dogma or sectarian beliefs, Enlightened Capitalism is not designed to be a religious platform. It merely seeks to redefine the art of business by adapting diverse models in order to enable businesses reach their goals and maximize their profits.

Enlightened Capitalism

  • invites every individual in our capitalistic society to question and evaluate their current methodologies,
  • encourages them to weed out whatever hurts business and violates social ethics, and
  • challenges them to apply new paradigms to transform businesses and community life.

Enlightened Capitalism is neither a platform to preach ethics or morality, nor does it seek to engage with specific social issues, governmental policies, or comparative studies of spiritual, philosophical and cultural traditions.
