We have hit a milestone in 2020 by surpassing over 100 brands with many of those brands evolving into independent businesses.
Our current investment portfolio is predominantly comprised of businesses and brands that focus on human potential. This includes education & training, personal, professional, and organizational development businesses and brands. The portfolio reflects our founder's commitment to make a positive difference and the best way to accomplish this is uplifting people personally and professionally, to empower people to improve their lives.
As we grew, we broaden our vision to include experiential businesses and brands. Just like education, experiences shape an individual's life. Our intention is to provide experiences that positively impact lives. We continued to expand our vision and included a third component, exposure. Exposing people especially young people to new things, places and ideas can be a game-changer in their destiny.
We bring the same commitment level to leading organizations and thier leadership to raise performance. This was an obvious strategic decision being that our founder has spent years as a business and technology consultant to corporations of all sizes from start-ups to Fortune 500. This was pivotal as it unified our personal and professional endeavors which fueled an explosion of creativity that led to further growth.
Our businesses and brands are collectively branded under the I M Possible Mall (I M) name.
We arrived at another pivotal point when we clarified our mission to include people, purpose, and profits. This unification furthered our growth and inpsired us to further expand our mission to include the planet. As a result, we launched, our non-profit I M University (I M U) to focus on social, economic, and environmental sustainability initiatives. I M U intensified our commitment to making a positive difference.
Our goal is to position TWG to begin investing in external ventures that support our mission.
It has been stated that the two most powerful words in every language are "I AM". Maybe being led to name our parent brand, I M was not coincidental.
Our aim is to be a socially and environmentally responsible investment firm. We remain committed to impact investing.
We do this by a governance framework that encompasses social, education, environmental, economic, and experiential strategies
and initiatives that we refer to as our SEE Framework for Collective Success.
Our non-profit entity, I M University (I M U) is responsible for establishing SEE targets, metrics and overall governance to ensure our businesses and brands remain socially, economically, and environmentally conscious.
We understand that we and our entities are part of a larger ecosystem that includes our employees, clients/customers, partners, vendors, communities, and the environment. We are committed to doing our best to improve the well-being of all our stakeholders while mitigating negative impacts. This is a continuous process of learning how to balance profit, purpose and stakeholder needs. We may not achieve perfection in our quest to be a values-driven enterprise but we are committed to improvement and progress.
Our financial objective is to make a profit so our ideas are evaluated to assess their marketability over a specified period of time. The idea has to meet a set of metrics to determine the feasiblity of being a brand or an independent business.
Once an idea is transformed into a business or brand, it is assessed and modeled to meet the SEE standards set
by I M University (I M U) which is responsible for our human and environmental sustainability governance.
Our companies and brands are established on principles of equity, quality, and a valued experience for all of our stakeholders.
We believe in the inherent power of diversity in all forms including thoughts and experiences.
