INLIGHTEN.IO

A Global Futures Consultancy Exclusively Serving the Venture Capital and Startup Ecosystems
ABOUT

Our 

Mission

Inlighten.io is on a mission to support the venture capital and startup ecosystems in developing a sharper foresight lens and awareness of the futures. We believe arming this industry's leaders and decision makers with foresight is the key to making VC a more sustainable, successful, and responsible asset class.

 

While most futures and foresight consultancies serve Fortune 500 companies, we believe given the extraordinary level of innovation and global impact the startup and VC ecosystems generate every year,

this is the space where foresight consultants, strategists, and researchers can create the most value, and make the most impact.

 

As such, we are focused on providing angels, institutional investors, and select founding teams with advisory consultations, strategy sessions, and data and market intelligence downloads designed to help our clients develop a deep, almost omniscient foresight lens that empowers them to find, fund, and create the next-class of breakout startup companies and unicorns.
