A society where every person has the opportunity to reach their highest human potential.
To provide the financial leadership skills entrepreneurs need, thereby enabling them to create a sustainable legacy of economic and social inclusiveness.
To support personal and professional development in our employees, focusing on building skills and savvy - with a particular emphasis on overcoming personal and systemic obstacles.
Syncopate was founded on the people-centered values of Entrepreneurship, Creativity, Leadership, and Relationship.
Entrepreneurship - We are inspired by the spirit of self-determination, service to community, stewardship of resources, and creation of wealth (financial, physical, emotional, spiritual, time) that entrepreneurs possess.
Creativity - We regularly venture outside our comfort zone because we recognize the potential that curiosity, imagination, looking at the world in new ways, continual learning, and innovative disruption brings to problem solving.
Leadership - We are leaders who embody courage and responsibility; who encourage, equip and empower others; who navigate challenges; and who have embarked on our mission with our vision firmly in our sights.
Relationship - We're not perfect, and we recognize the humanity in ourselves and others. We extend trust, offer grace, treat people with dignity, and seek justice for everyone, everywhere.
Inspired by visionaries such as the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr., business and community leader Bill Strickland, and poet, singer and songwriter Gord Downie, Syncopate strives to remedy the ongoing injustice of economic and social inequality resulting from centuries of colonialism in North America.
“Power without love is reckless and abusive, and love without power is sentimental and anemic. Power at its best is love implementing the demands of justice, and justice at its best is power correcting everything that stands against love.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr
