• Ergodicity 101 Course

    Introduction to Financing Systemic Transformation for the Regenerative, Net positive and Circular Economy.

     

    How are we like a fly trying to get through a closed window? All we need to do is see the handle clearly, and pull (not push harder) the window open.
    This 4-week course will delve into a powerful, and counter-intuitive, way of constructing a regenerative economy. Ergodic investment and entrepreneurship. Participants will explore the real dynamics of capital growth, the impact of unpredictables, and how the bigger the unpredictability in the world, the more effective ergodic investment strategies become.
    Ergodic investing and business building is the ground breaking new approach we need now.
    Led by the authors of the book Ergodic Investor & Entrepreneur, Graham Boyd and Jack Reardon.

  • The Ergodic Investor & Entrepreneur

    Nature needs unpredictability to power natural capital regeneration. Start using this power now in your business.


    There is a far better way to invest and run businesses in times of rapid change. In fact, the more VUCA the business context is, the more an ergodic strategy outperforms conventional investment theses.

    Ergodic design is a little-known driver of the success of nature, and even companies like Apple, Unilever, or the Japanese Keiretsu. You can start using it in your investments or startups now. It is a must to get circular, net positive, regenerative etc. business to thrive.

     The underlying issue that we solve: the true dynamics of business are different to the underlying assumptions hidden in today's investment and business theories.

    At Evolutesix, we have identified this issue and developed a solution that you can implement.

    To stepchange your investment or business performance, watch this video, read the book, and attend this 101 course. If you're already familiar with ergodicity and would like to dive deeper and put it into practice on your endeavour; then join the Ergodicity Masterclass!

    Most thoughtful observers understand the capital formation process of our economy is broken. Few understand how the flawed statistics lying at the foundation of “high finance” has led us astray. Perhaps only Boyd and Reardon can illuminate how ergodic thinking shines a light on the path to a prosperous future by aligning our finance with the complexity of how all living systems actually work: in dynamic balance, collaboratively.

    We often tend to polarize our societal choices as either/or, the market or the state, competition or cooperation between businesses. What is lacking is the third level of integration: the practice and institution of the commons. This book reflects the return of this theme in business thinking, and is a highly necessary preparation for a world in existential risk.

     

    Michel Bauwens

    If sustainable, net positive business is the right path (for business and society), why is it difficult? Why doesn’t it happen naturally, and what stands in the way? To answer that core question, Graham and Jack lay out a flaw they see in how businesses and investments are managed. A more optimal path is possible, but requires a new understanding of the dynamics of capital in

    business, they say, and show how to invest and build for both net positive and profitability in ways that seem impossible today.

     

    Andrew Winston; sustainability thought leader and best-selling author (with Paul Polman) of Net Positive

    Business must become a true collaborative citizen delivering on society's needs today. To do so business needs to recognise the inherent nonlinearity and path-dependance of all living systems, including business itself. Graham and Jack's work on non-ergodicity in business is an important contributing voice. Their ergodic investment strategy allows unpredicatbility to become an integral part of business strategy.

    This book is amazing, because it gives a new perspective on business plans:

    bringing luck, unpredictables, and black Swans under one strategy, showing how we can win with randomness by pooling, planning, and diversifying at all levels! All investors and entrepreneurs need to apprehend, digest,

    and understand. This book is a seed that will blossom with examples to

    further convince all.

    We need to fundamentally rethink our investment paradigms, if capital markets are to play a more important role in financing transformative solutions to the world’s biggest challenges. This book provides fresh insights about

    how capital providers across all asset classes can better leverage unpredictability and make use of new business opportunities in systemic investing.

    Harness the unpredictable. This statement jumped out at me immediately when I first skimmed through the book. How could this not be one of the most important strengths for business in today’s polycrisis world, yet all focus on risk management is to attempt the impossible—make it all predictable. And then the surprises hit! While the book debunks competitive economics, its misperceptions and mathematically illogical assumptions, it’s first and foremost a plea for diversified and collaborative businesses. It’s adding a resilience message on how to prepare the transition to a regenerative and distributive economy. This book fixes false assumptions, and I’ll add one of my own: the idea that we can still avoid collapse. We are already in collapse, and no-one can know exactly what additional and potentially exponential unpredictabilities that will bring. Showing us how to harness these for resilience makes this book extra relevant today.

  • Ergodicity 101 program modules

    The program is structured in a 1 x weekly 2 hour workshop session on Tuesdays, for 4 weeks. The workshops are composed of insightful presentations, engaging discussion and immersive breakout group sessions. Through interactive discussions and case studies, learners will gain a good understanding of how interconnected companies, holistic capitals, and alternative investment strategies can lead us towards a regenerative future.
