The Archetype Group provides a service to investors and philanthropists interested in supporting culture-changing businesses, connecting them with mission-driven entrepreneurs and projects that have been pre-vetted for both viability and cultural impact.
All investors strive to put their financial resources into worthwhile ventures, most of which they hope will provide at least financial returns, and some of which may have a social dimension. The Social Doctrine of the Catholic Church takes this further, and identifies four areas of of Returns On Investment (ROI), also known as Pillars of Wealth Creation, designed to provide a financial ROI consistent with standard financial returns in the investment world, as well as providing an expanded 4X ROI to its investors.
Eternal legacy. What price can be attributed to one human soul when talents are truly put at the service of building up God's Kingdom? One soul touched by a project designed in integrity is equal to an eternity of rewards and has no earthly comparison. When the internal corporate culture of these Entrepreneurs and their missions foster the living out of a values-filled life - even sacramental life, where teams have Catholic members - and the freedom to be faithful at all times, these Entrepreneurs advance the cause of Christ's Kingdom in unprecedented ways.
Successful investments produce profitable businesses and growth through the Archetype Group. The great moral test of any business is achieving financial success without trampling the human person, particularly the poorest or most vulnerable.
Financial success is a measure and proof of viability and success for all involved, and the just reward for work well done. It is also the wealth that generates more wealth. At Archetype, the financial return is not the inordinate pursuit of money, rather it is the currency of the Divine mandate of Christian thriving, stewarding and multiplying goodness and supply on the earth, building the Kingdom, and the submission of our talents to the heavenly Father, for His blessing. We co-labor with God and await what He blesses, and it is always with abundance.
Works are designed to sustain lives.
We believe in the principle of solidarity and subsidiarity, localized development of relationships, the institution of the family and community, preferential treatment of the poor, outreach to individuals and families, especially those in need, building a true solidarity. Each project undertaken by Entrepreneurs, Investors and Archetype must support the institutions of family and community, with preferential treatment to those in need, generating flourishing and economy for as many as possible.
Is each team member thriving and growing in his or her calling, the proper use and development of talents, and in fulfilling contribution with matching reward, all for God's glory?
Each economy exists to serve the humans within it, not vice versa, and this is only accomplished when businesses protect and dignify each human person.
The Holy Spirit works in the heart and mind of the entrepreneur. Our mission involves a person-centric focus in mentoring, developing and launching each entrepreneur into his or her own sphere of influence and market segment, maximizing human talent and individual fulfillment, following the law of subsidiarity with the goal of creating healthy, powerful, autonomous companies.
