How it started
Pierre and Shay met in 2019 in Vietnam, during their respective trips around the world. Motivated by a common will to participate in the positive change of the world, they officially launch Spinel in January 2020.
Our drive
Spinel was born out of the understanding that fourth-sector organizations (then an emerging terminology) are limited in their growth and sustainability because current strategic support companies are too expensive, lack flexibility and are not suited to building a new world in a systemic and regenerative economy.
Our ambition
To help the most impactful organizations create change, find global partners, grow on the long-term and never worry about finance. To that purpose, build a network of remote offices composed of small and nimble teams of consultants, who work both remotely and face-to-face with purposeful organizations.


Industry leaders with vision, knowledge, and know-how to support Spinel’s growth. 

They often intervene on projects alongside our team.

We want to do more than "just" our job. We are passionate about the impact we can have on the world. We believe that anybody can the idea that might be the one for long-term, positive change. For that reason, we required all employees to spend at least 0.5 days a week on "quests": Working pro-bono, launching an impact project, working on a purposeful solution...

Theia Notes
Miniseries of articles, photography and research presenting the impact of the anthropocene, and proposing solutions that we can all take in our daily lives.

Our charter of ethics

The purpose of this Charter of Ethics is to identify those professional obligations that serve to protect you, our client, the public in general, and our profession – and our common primary purpose: A better world.

It is agreed upon by all our stakeholders where:

  • The parties intend to work together in any form, be it a partnership, a consulting services engagement, a job, or any other form.
  • The parties agree to follow, beyond the traditional scope of legal documentation, a charter of ethics defining their relationships while they do business together.
It is important to Spinel that this charter is agreed upon between all  participating parties to its business endeavours, as it directly aligns with our mission to provide strategy services for a sustainable future, a fairer economic system, and to protect wildlife.
