The Socially Conscious Holding Company For Life & Plant Sciences
The Big Idea
Imagine you have a startup or later stage company in a fast pace, ever changing, high growth industry. Your company has created a great product or solution and your community is strong. You operate with ethics and integrity... and you have a great team.
The opportunities in front of you are endless... and yet the problems ahead of you
are enormous. You need funding, growth capital, compliance support, financial savvy, strategic direction, industry connections... and the list goes on.
Now imagine you are an investor... and you see the multi-trillion dollar growth potential
in the life and plant sciences space. This includes whole food products, health and wellness solutions, Cannabis, CBD and Empathoceuticals.
At the same time... you don’t know where to look for private equity opportunities.
You aren’t able to put $50K to $1M into multiple deals. And you also realize the risk of investing in a private equity company individually is high... and can be illiquid for years.
Orthogonal Thinker solves these problems for both Companies and Investors alike.
We call our solution, “The New Standard of Farma”. The result is extraordinary value for our shareholders... for our planet... and for our portfolio of company holdings as well.
U.S. health care costs for chronic diseases such as heart disease, cancer, diabetes, and Alzheimer’s disease totaled $1.1 trillion in 2016.
When lost economic productivity is included, the total economic impact was $3.7 trillion.
Mental health disorders could cost the global economy up to $16 trillion by the year 2030 if the problems are not addressed
The current standard for food products and the standard treatment of these issues
in the U.S. is compounding the problem.
There is no “Clean Label” which consumers can trust to guide them in their food choices and other diet and health-related decisions.
It’s difficult for individual companies and founders who want to change this old paradigm. They cannot compete with the big food and health conglomerates with deep pockets who only look at profits.
Private equity, which can reap investors huge returns, has its own problems. These problems can be difficult for the average or even seasoned investor to surmount.
While holding companies can provide investors with dividends from a portfolio of multiple companies... most look at profits first as well. Until now, there hasn’t
been a Socially Conscious Holding Company investment opportunity.
The Global Healthcare Crisis is the Mother of Opportunity.
According to the Global Wellness Institute, Health and Wellness is now a $4.7 trillion global economy.
This includes Complimentary Medicine $360B, Healthy Eating $702B, Spa Economy $119B, Wellness Real Estate $134B, and Wellness Tourism $639B.
Medicinal and Legal Cannabis is expected to grow to $146.4 billion by 2025.
Alternative Empathoceutical treatments are expected to be on several state ballots in 2019 and 2020. What’s more, there are 11 U.S. clinical trials studying Psilocybin to treat depression, addiction, PTSD and more.
There are thousands of early stage and growth stage companies in the Life and Plant Sciences space which need capital and incubation/acceleration support.
The need for a New Standard of Farma to replace the reliance on Big Pharma and Big Agriculture has never been greater.
Our Secret Sauce
As the world’s first Socially Conscious Holding Company... Orthogonal is uniquely positioned to spearhead The New Standard of Farma.
We employ 3 Protocols of Socially Conscious Investing to build a family of companies united by a common vision.
We deploy our connections, expertise and business savvy to incubate, accelerate and innovate across the market sectors we invest in.
We then help our partner companies execute in hyper flow and with effortless focus.
We provide both Companies and Investors an opportunity to share in the financial rewards of having a positive impact in our world.
For the companies who become part of our holdings:
We invest between $50,000 to $1mm into a mixture of seed startups and growth phase companies.
Orthogonal receives up to 50% equity stake in these companies for capital and other business and services. In some cases we may acquire 100% ownership.
These services include incubation, compliance, financial, marketing, deal making, structuring additional fundraising rounds, taking companies public and assisting them to do a Security Token Offering (STO) if that makes the most sense.
Each of our partner companies becomes vertically and horizontally integrated into the larger family of Orthogonal Companies. This provides for more growth opportunities and efficiencies of scale. It also increases the odds of their success.
We are creating an ecosystem of socially conscious companies which can have greater collective influence in shaping their industries.
For the investors in Orthogonal
Investors (both accredited and non-accredited and non-U.S.) can currently purchase shares through a priced equity round.
We provide liquidity to investors via exits, dividend payouts and long term capital appreciation and ownership of
Investors are in essence, owning a piece of multiple companies in a diversified portfolio of holdings.
Our Investment Philosophy
My investment strategy and philosophy has become more than just a way to make money. It’s become a way to build legacy... and to leave our world a better place
than when I found it.
One way I do this is through my money... with an important distinction.
I believe money carries a frequency of energy. In other words... every time
you invest your money... it carries your voice, your vote and your intention.
With this in mind, I invest as an expression of the values I live by... in companies which embody these values... and these values guide my investing decisions.
We call it “The Orthogonal Creed.” It is a way of life built on the values of connection, empathy, self-love, authenticity and empowerment. These values also include having a bold vision, a high frequency of energy and leading from the front.
These core values inform our investing decisions. What’s more, these are the values
we look for in the companies and the founders we are investing in.
As to our mission and vision...
Our portfolio of companies is built with a singular end in mind:
To help heal and nourish the body, mind and soul…
To empower individual lives…
And to share in the profits from the positive change we help create in our world.
We look to invest in the top 1% of companies which align with our values and connect with our frequency of energy.
The New Standard of Farma is a movement with the potential to disrupt multi-trillion dollar industries.
We aim to help usher in an era where everyone can eat whole foods which are free from buffers and fillers.
Where the Orthogonal Clean Label gives consumers the truth about what’s in their food and who’s behind their food.
Where everyone can have access to plant medicines and Empathoceuticals for bringing health and well-being to their bodies, minds and spirits.
We want everyone to be a happy human... and it begins in large part with changing the way we eat and the way we think.

Hedge funds and institutional investors in these markets are looking to provide capital and strategic resources to these companies.
