- Vision – with focus on reaching new ideas and possibilities of using resources and potentials towards a greater good.
- Meaning – with focus on testing and validating the vision’s value to people.
- Impact – with focus on evaluating results and designing a final vision for implementation.

Share the Development of Projects with a Clear Purpose
Our Services allow you to develop your leadership by sharing the progress of projects with a clear purpose on the Visions channel.
Our Services allow you to receive support and collaboration from our “Visitors” through interactions and comments.
Our Services allow Users to receive support and acceleration through optional investments we can make based on the performance of their leadership projects. These investments’ optionality follows criteria, including, but no limited to, the interaction and demonstration of trust by our “Visitors”, demonstrated through qualitative and quantitative analytics of their interactions with the User’s profile and posts.
Acceleration is a process of circular investment, i.e., an initial investment which is made under the agreement of it being returned in the same value (with monetary corrections) in the form of a new investment in another leadership project from CLEAR PURPOSE. When applicable, the contract of investment takes place only at “Level 4 – Impact”.
