IKAR was created as a game-changer and disruptor based on the core realization that the next generation of “successful” businesses would need to shift their thinking, and balance wealth creation with the responsibility to elevate the world.
Our initiative was to solve this problem. Our answer is the HUMICORN.
When Mario Diel founded IKAR he identified and extracted the values needed to make the next generation of world-changing impact companies despite the uncertainty of the COVID-19 Pandemic.
These values are embedded into 7 Pillars of IKAR’s HUMICORN :
The HUMICORN is a start-up company with a certain minimum valuation that uses its business and wealth creation not as the endgame but as the fuel for the real mission of elevating our global society across all continents, geographies, ideologies, and socioeconomic backgrounds.
HUMICORNS must only build on a forged, tested, and mature entrepreneurial spirit and demonstrate the courage to break norms to undertake this global mission.
HUMICORNS have to engage, harness, and transfer the most impactful and influential global leaders, who represent the core facets of society and share a common passion and need to elevate the human condition, into their mission.
HUMICORNS require a matrix and structure that reflects the most important industries of both today and the future and lays a mechanism to create the tremendous wealth and prosperity required to become a world game-changer.
HUMICORNS must use the most sophisticated, proven, and tested financial, leadership, and business tools to drive success. They must use these tools creatively and in a novel way with the courage to not be restricted by their known limitations, biases, and preconceptions.
The HUMICORN must defend its mission and be disciplined in how it chooses its financial partners. This is crucial because its financial partners must share the desire to balance economic returns with social impact, and to embolden the mission−not disrupt it.
A HUMICORN’S enterprise wealth creation must align directly and responsibly with the purpose of global impact and ESG on the scale of changing the world at the same or greater level than the business.
