We’re a little crazy…

It certainly feels that way at times. For over 10 years, we’ve dreamed about Green Seed Technologies developing into the incubation company it is finally turning into. Some of the ideas we’re building today, we’ve been thinking about for a decade! In some ways, we’ve been patient. Business success doesn’t  have to come within the time frames of venture capitalists. In fact, many businesses that fail on the VC route could have succeeded if the founders had been more patient.

Maybe we’re a little old fashioned, but we care about building businesses that can last. We care about running them in a way that is fiscally conservative, produces profits, provides meaningful jobs for people within our communities, and can withstand some adversity. We also love to find solutions for problems that we deal with on an ongoing basis. We can’t always “eat our own dog food,” but ideally that’s what we’d be doing in every instance.

But the truth is… this is still a bit of a crazy experiment. We want to create an assembly-line: for creating businesses. The same way Ford built cars. We want to create a repeatable system that can produce profitable businesses… and who knows if that is possible. But like I said… we’re a little bit crazy.

We Build Companies

Our purpose is to develop and launch profitable businesses with amazing cultures, that create meaningful employment opportunities for people within our community, and leverage technology and sound business principles to create long-term sustainability. 

Technology & Process

Used correctly, technology is a force multiplier within an organization. One of the things that makes us unique, is how we leverage technology to improve internal processes. We are builders are heart. And if there isn’t a good solution to meet our need… perhaps that’s a good indication it’s time to build it. We love it when members of our team question how we do things and search for better solutions. We are far from perfect, but it’s the drive to improve and creative thought processes to help us leverage tech to find a better way forward.

Great Culture

“You get more bees with honey.” Great cultures not only attract great people, but help you retain great people. Great cultures are authentic, and are the result of good HR practices. It results in those you hire and those you promote. Learning to build a great company culture takes time. But over decades of experience, we have learned several keys to building a consistently strong culture. And these aren’t just our ideas, they leveraged by some of the best known companies in the world also. 

Organic Growth

We might be the most old fashioned software company around. We are generally opposed to taking VC funding. We believe in business models that produce profits, and we reinvest those profits to build new products and expand market share. We believe that sound business principles like living within our means, is the best way to build companies that last.

Leadership Development

Great companies need great leaders. We invest time and resources to develop leaders equal to the tasks of building these companies. Leader who can see clearly where the business needs to be focused in order to grow and strengthen. Leaders who care about their customers and their people. Leaders who give credit with it is due, are calm under pressure, and committed to the organizations success.
