Mission

Synergos brings people together to solve complex problems of poverty and creates opportunities for individuals and their communities to thrive. Systemic change requires collaboration. Solutions to poverty are often built in silos - and therefore fail. Synergos creates, promotes, and sustains collaborations among business, government, civil society, and marginalized communities. We foster successful collaborations by building trust, designing and implementing change processes, and enhancing the effectiveness of bridging leaders and institutions.
Our approach uses four elements that increase individual and collective effectiveness to address complex problems: personal reflection, bridging leadership, systems thinking and collaboration. This approach develops bridging leaders and helps create inclusive partnerships and institutions - contributing to changes in systems, improved system outcomes, and improved lives.
