At Joseph Sassoon Group, we believe that building a business is not an end in itself, but an opportunity to influence the world of tomorrow. And to make it better.
To this extent, we have adopted the Jewish principle of Tikkun Olam (rectifying the world). In Jewish teachings, any activity that improves the world brings it closer to the harmonious state for which it was created. Tikkun Olam implies that while the world is innately good, its Creator purposely left room for us to improve upon His work and sanctify creation through our choices and actions.
All human activities are opportunities to fulfill this mission, and every human being can be involved in Tikkun Olam—child or adult, student or entrepreneur, industrialist or artist, caregiver or salesperson, political activist or environmentalist.
In keeping with this ancient wisdom, at Joseph Sassoon we only engage in business that brings an added value to our communities and the world at large, whether it is financing a water desalination plant in Africa to improve irrigation for land or provide clean water to communities, or by investing in a technology based business that empowers minority or isolated communities, or ultimately investing in an entrepreneur who developed a service that lifts up their community and enables further future entrepreneurs to launch their own startups.
At Joseph Sassoon we keep a constant lookout towards the future, and what today’s investment means for our collective tomorrow.
