As featured on…



Our story as a collective begins with our migration to a new land, and establishing our roots in the community. The Migration track explores this phenomenon and how we integrate ourselves in our new environment.


Next up, we establish our eminence as a group of seasoned and well-informed professionals helping grow some of the largest and influential companies in the local landscape. We are well-represented across a cross-section of industries, experience levels and segments.


After developing our knowledge and experience skillset through working in positions across the local job market, we establish our own businesses, offering jobs, stability and community service as a key tenet of our drive along with commercial prowess.


And finally, we seek to shape and influence the national discourse, policy-making and direction to ease the transition for future generations, ensuring that our voices are equally heard and ideologies reflected in the local environment.
