Psychedelic Medicine

While the term “psychedelic” might conjure up thoughts of tie-dye, flares, and rock music, psychedelics have come a long way— specifically, from recreational use at raging concerts to carefully monitored research and medical settings where their potential for mental health healing is studied closely. In exciting news for the mental health world in particular, psychedelics are just beginning to make a splash in the prescription drug space.

Human Rights

From climate change to women’s rights to anti-discrimination, human rights issues are more pervasive corporate issues than we might think about as we pour our cereal or brush our teeth in the morning. But, whether we think about them or not, human rights issues exist.

Gold

As kids, we buried “secret treasure” in the backyard. We didn’t know then, let alone care, about the state of the economy or the worth of gold. These days, we know very well what’s in our investment portfolios and we cringe or breath a sigh of relief as we watch it fluctuate from day-to-day and week to week. So, it’s no surprise these days of economic uncertainty, we might find ourselves dreaming of safely buried treasure once again.  If you are, you aren’t alone. 

China

China, the first country to deal with COVID-19, has also been the first to see some recovery, with economic indicators mostly back to pre-pandemic levels as of October. But the rest of the world has not been so successful.

Green Initiatives

Where climate change was once a theory that people accepted or not in the same way that they preferred cream or not in their coffee, things are changing fast. This is especially true among millennials, who are making no mistake about where their money is being invested, namely into sustainability-oriented funds.

Electric Vehicles

What was once (not too long ago) a niche sideshow in the automotive market is poised to take over the whole thing, with electric vehicles anticipated to dominate car sales by 2040.

SaaS

Software-as-a-Service is now standard, from mobile phones and laptops to business solutions for the largest of entities. It seems that there’s an app for everything, and it’s all personalized to each user’s credentials.

Direct Listing

Once uncharted territory, pursuing a direct listing is becoming less and less an anomaly. “An IPO is no longer a one-size-fits-all path to public,” according to the New York Stock Exchange.

Diversity

In the modern world, a diverse team can be the difference between success and failure. These days, employees, customers, and investors alike know that a talented group of people who advocate for the best ideas really get the job done. Usually, those people don’t all look the same.
