Our Purpose

Increase the carrying capacity of the Planet.

By 2040, the global population will grow to 9.1 billion, pushing our global annual consumption to 350 billion tonnes of resources, 4 times today's current levels.

The global industrial ecosystem must be re-invented to meet growing demand in a more scalable and sustainable way.

That's why we are committed to the application of new and emerging technology to help industrial clients improve productivity, deliver exponentially more with exponentially less and increase the carrying capacity of the Planet.

Why Rise?

Understand our drivers and why we do what we do

The great industrial re-invention

The global industrial ecosystem must be re-invented to meet global demand in a scalable and more sustainable way.

New and emerging technologies are supporting fundamental changes in the way we live, work, and relate to one another, forcing companies to rethink how they create value and for whom.

This provides nations, governments, companies, organisations, and individuals the opportunity to imagine how we might do exponentially more with exponentially less, and in ways that bring about a fair and equal society.

This is an opportunity as large as has ever been presented in history.

Population growth drives unprecedented demand

This is an opportunity as large as has ever been presented in history.

The global resources trilemma

This unprecedented demand for more must be met with exponentially less and in ways that create a fair and equal society.

Meeting this demand in the same way that we have done in the past will be catastrophic to our environment and to life as we know it. Not meeting it would be worse.

The platform for the great industrial re-invention

Over the next 20 years, our global industrial ecosystem must be reinvented to meet global demand for natural resources in a scalable and sustainable way.

Rise-x is the digital industrial marketplace and utility platform that enables entities to source, procure, manage, and execute work in a single online and secure environment.

Population growth drives unprecedented demand

The population is growing larger, living longer, and getting richer, driving unprecedented demand growth for energy and resources.

Over the next 20 years, the global population will grow to exceed 9.1 billion people, while the urban middle class will grow by an estimated 3 billion people.

This population explosion will drive extraordinary demand for natural resources, pushing our global annual consumption for resources beyond 350 billion tonnes per annum in 2040 (Up from 90 billion tonnes in 2017).

Our Core Values

If something is not good, not interesting, not exponential, not essential or not fun… don’t do it!

Do Good

At rise-x.io we believe that being good to the world is good business. It follows the logic that if there is no planet, then all business is pointless. Good capitalist intent should be rewarded if it is closely aligned to good social intent. We do not pursue profit for the sake of profit. Rather, profits are what allow us to continue to do what we do and focus on exponential solutions to exponential problems.

Be Curious

We encourage our people, and our partners to be curious, to be led by the strong desire to know or to learn something. To this end we encourage our people and our partners to experiment and, in doing so, not to be discouraged by the risk of failure but to embrace it as a pathway to knowing and learning.

Think Exponentially

We encourage our people to spend time on the world’s biggest problems. There is always room for incremental improvement but too much of the worlds talent is focused on incremental challenges. At rise-x.io we want to focus on big problems and use emerging technology to re-imagine industries and business models to allow us to deliver on our mission of increasing the carrying capacity of planet.

Focus on the Essential

Almost everything is noise. There are more opportunities and activities in the world than we have the time and resources to invest in. Many of these opportunities may be good, and even very good, however it is most likely that most are trivial and only a few are vital. We Challenge ourselves and our partners to focus only on the essential opportunities that enable you to deliver exponential impact.

Have Fun

Fun fosters creativity. It frees the imagination, and imagination is the source of every form of human achievement!

Our Expected Behaviours

If something doesn’t feel right or fair it is your responsibility to speak up!

Leadership

At rise-x.io Leadership is not a title, nor a reward. Leadership is about serving the interests of others.  Leadership is an expectation we have of our people and we expect our people to serve the greater good, and in doing so, to be role models for those that look up to them and for those who come after them.

Stewardship

We charge our people to build a lasting legacy. Whether we are developing people, building better organisations, better industries or even a better world our intention is simple. Leave it better off than when you found it.

Fairness

Make judgements free from discrimination. At rise-x.io fairness guides the judgements we make, the things we do and the way in which we interact with our people and our partners. We believe that fair is fun, and that everyone has the right to be treated fairly and with respect. We do not tolerate anything or anyone who undermines that basic right.

Trust

At rise-x.io trust is given and not earned. We give our trust to our people and our partners and we expect the same in return. We can do great things when we work together towards a common cause. We believe relationships based on trust are worth investing in, and we have no tolerance for individuals who break our trust.
