All Good Ventures was launched in 2018 by founders, Rod and Heather Claycomb to offer social enterprise funding, mentoring, and business support to social entrepreneurs all over the world.
However, the genesis of our idea started nearly a decade ago. Listen to our story.
After meeting at university, their entrepreneurial careers began in Denver, Colorado where Rod was employed with a start-up organisation while Heather started her first communications consultancy.
In 1999, Rod was recruited to work in New Zealand and soon thereafter became managing director of a new biotech venture. To this day, his entreprenuerial journey continues through his own company, Quantec.
After moving to New Zealand, Heather held several jobs in PR and marketing. In 2004, she started her own PR agency, HMC Communications.
Both Heather and Rod grew up in strong Christian families and their Christian values are the driving force behind All Good Ventures.
PURPOSE MADE POSSIBLE
What sets All Good Ventures apart is that we are passionate about helping people who want to 'do good' for others through social entrepreneurship.
All Good Ventures foundational Bible verse is:
“For we are God’s handiwork, created in Christ Jesus to do good works, which God prepared in advance for us to do.”
-The Bible, in the book of Ephesians chapter 2:10
If you feel one of the ‘good works’ you're meant to do is to start a business to free a group of people somewhere in the world from some sort of extreme deprivation in their lives, then All Good Ventures wants to make your purpose possible by providing social enterprise funding, mentoring, and business support.And while All Good Ventures was built on our founders' personal Christian values, it's important to note that we are inclusive in all that we do. It's quite simple - if you want to build a sustainable, profitable business that will 'do good' for people, we want to talk.
