In the aftermath of the COVID pandemic, it became apparent to the Evolution Capital Partners team that it was time to reinvent our core values. We wanted to develop values that better represented our organization, as well as the work we do with our investors and founders who are passionately growing their small businesses. Additionally, we wanted these values to align with how we present ourselves to the communities that we serve.
The Evolution partners spent several months developing values that were authentic to and resonated with the entire team. This collaborative process taught us a lot about one another’s priorities, personal values and visions for our business. Fortunately, we were all in agreement on these five core values—and, coincidentally, the acronym for our core values is “agree”:
- Accountable to Our Community
- Growth Mindset
- Return on Our Energy
- Everyone is a Leader
- Embrace Change
Now, we feel it’s important that we share each of these five core values—and what they mean to our team at Evolution—with you as our investors, founders, team members, and the broader communities in which we live and work. We hope that, by sharing our own principles, this will ultimately help inspire and provide guidance to other entrepreneurs and small businesses owners who are also in the process of developing their core values.
Over the next few months, we will be sharing a blog series that explores each of our five core values and what they truly mean to our team. We hope you’ll enjoy following along!
