‘Quality of Life’ Economists Reveal Planning Tool for Values-Driven Entrepreneurs

Happonomy’s Leap Model is a step-by-step plan that helps startups, businesses and organizations strengthen their foundations, evaluate resources and move ideas forward while staying true to their sustainability principles.

A Belgian sustainability nonprofit called Happonomy, which is working to make higher quality of life an inexorable component of a healthy economy, has just made public its Leap Model — a new business planning and design model for entrepreneurs who want to build a more social, creative and ecologically sustainable world.

Happonomy is a solutions-focused collective made up of scientists, entrepreneurs, creatives and value-driven business experts aimed at driving knowledge and creating models to enable work, money and technology to support a better quality of life. Ther organization's Leap Model is a step-by-step plan that helps startups, businesses and organizations strengthen their foundations, evaluate their resources and move their ideas forward while staying true to their sustainability principles. It’s supported by Vlaanderen Circulair, the government agency for the Flemish circular economy.

“Leap [helps] value-driven entrepreneurs … who want to stay true to their creative selves, and their social and ecological principles,” says Happonomy founder and CEO Bruno Delepierre.

Alongside the Leap Model, Happonomy has also launched the first phase of a new legal model for creating sustainable organizations — complete with statutory clauses, governance principles and a method for flexibly allocating company ownership during its build-up phase.

Together with its Sustainable Money System (SUMSY) and the Value Canvas, Happonomy ambitiously asserts that the four models combined offer an integrated solution to “transform capitalism” — from individual transformation to organizational transformation to societal transformation (all welcome ideas, as far as we’re concerned!).
