Joel Solomon and Expanding Consciousness to Make Better Choices
Today we take a critical look at our relationship to money and consider the responsibility that comes with the accumulation of wealth. Joel Solomon is an impact investing and community-building legend and a mentor to founders and investors who want to see returns while helping the world thrive. Joel is the Co-Founder of Renewal Funds, Canada’s largest mission venture capital firm, Founder of Hollyhock, a retreat and learning center on Cortes Island in British Columbia, a long-time angel investor, a community-focused real estate developer, and co-author of The Clean Money Revolution: Re-Inventing Power, Purpose & Capitalism.  Joel encourages us to think about the power of money and the obligation each of us has to examine our relationship with it, which starts with figuring out who we are, what our values are, what mark we want to leave on the world. He reminds us that accumulating wealth, power, and influence can be used for incredible good or incredible harm, and that each of us have more agency than we often tend to believe. Joel provides a thought-provoking framework that can be applied to the development of impact markets and to our individual moral pathways.

Lucian Tarnowski on Time Travelling to a Redesigned Reality
This episode explores the surprising technology – which we’re all familiar with – that could deliver the transformation of our planet. Guest Lucian Tarnowski, Founder of United Planet (UP Game) and Founding Curator and Executive Director of Civana, gives us hope that everything we need to tackle our biggest problems is right there in front of us.  Lucian explains that humanity can shape its future not by starting from the present and tweaking current systems, but by starting from the future and working backwards to reimagine systems and transform the present. He explores our current relationship to time, which is a fundamental part of his project UP Game: a novel, time traveling immersive reality game whose participants imagine sustainable development goals being met and work backwards to redesign reality. Lucian is a Founding Patron at Revellers and has built United Planet as a DAO, so shares his perspective on the structure’s capacity for organization, coordination, and allocation of capital. We learn what he looks for in top founders, examples of projects he’d like to see Revellers support, and what he’d do with $100M to invest tomorrow. You’ve been working to solve big problems for a while, but you do it with such positivity – how do you do that? (2:11) So you choose to live in a world where there a bunch of good people building amazing things – is this what gives you that sense of peace? (5:05) What is UP Game? (11:38) What is the false story about time you mention? (19:42) If someone gave you $100M today what would you invest in? (28:55) Why are you part of Revellers? (31:51) What do you look for in a founder? (32:44) If you could think of one person who deserves a grant right now, who would it be?
