Our Mission

Our mission is to catalyze investments in climate innovators through coaching, teaching and developing high-impact founder stories. 


What We Do 
We work with high-potential startup founders to develop their ‘why’ story - an emotionally captivating story that will get investors’ attention, and turn their pitch deck from a mundane investor pitch into an irresistible investment opportunity. 

“Your success raising investment is more than just talking about your business and your technology. 

How you engage investors matters just as much - if you want to make an impact, you have to pay attention to the human side of data.


You have to become a better storyteller.

- Diane Currie Sam, Founder


How We Make a Difference

And that takes money.

"As for Return on Investment, all I can say is WOW!"

I could talk and she translated what I was saying in to an amazing story that I knew was the answer to my problem.

Diane had not only found the way to tell my story, she had also captured the emotion that I felt. I am now more inspired, more confident and I cannot wait to deliver my presentation.

As for the return on investment, all I can say is WOW! I wish I had met Diane before I put in the 80 hours of work on my pitch!
