Peter Drucker defined entrepreneurship as a “manifesto of dissent.” By that he meant that the entrepreneur stewards a sacred trust to make things better, no matter his domain of practice or his chosen sphere of influence. It’s in their spiritual DNA. They are born (and made) to innovate; born (and made) to serve people in unprecedented ways. They find a way. We believe that a world without the entrepreneurial spirit is an impoverished world. So, we made it our mission to help global entrepreneurs inspire a better world.
FOUNDER & MANAGING DIRECTOR
Company founder Jim Van Eerden has always had a passion for combining business and mission, for the intersection between entrepreneurial enterprise and cause. His unique experiences, including start-up roles for Global 2000 and fast-growth early stage companies, has earned Jim a reputation as one of the nation’s leading “blended value” strategists. His partners and colleagues and staff all share the vision to help global entrepreneurs inspire a better world.™
Helixx protagonists also share a belief in the idea that People Matter – and that each person is made with a spiritual equivalent of their natural DNA that gives them gifts to share with the world. A part of our work is the high calling of helping people to know that truth, and to live in light of that reality.
Jim and his wife Rachel seek to live this mission in their personal lives, too. As parents of 11 children, they enjoy hosting “entrepreneurial and missional co-conspirators” at their homestead, called Magnalia, in North Carolina as a part of the experience of their co-venturing model.
