“When Will Things Get Back to Normal?”

Economist Mariana Mazzucato (UCL Professor, Director of Institute for Innovation & Public Purpose and noted author) suggests that this is the wrong question to be asking as we work to reopen amidst COVID-19.

As she stated in a TED2020 virtual talk on Monday of this week, “Really, my view is that we need to do everything we can not to go back to normal, because normal was part of the problem.”

The Croixstone team wholeheartedly agrees with the concept that 2020 has delivered an opportunity to fix problematic corporate governance and business structures, and to reimagine ways to do capitalism differently. 

Today, we are focused on the art and science of reimagining the future to build stronger organizations, corporations and communities.


Goodbye Uptown. Hello NoDa!

Anyone who knows the Croixstone team knows that we’re changemakers at heart.  And this week we’re thrilled to announce a big change as we relocated in June 2020 to a larger office in Charlotte’s NoDa district.  

The historic events of 2020 will catalyze seismic changes in both American society and business.  We can’t think of a better place to foster the creativity needed to drive these changes than Charlotte’s beloved arts district. 

As long-term community members and supporters of Industrious Charlotte, we’re pioneering as Industrious NoDa has opened the district’s first Class A office space in a converted warehouse (originally part of the historic Newco Fibre Mill complex near North Davidson and 36th Streets). 

While COVID-19 still has us social distancing and largely working from home, the Croixstone team invites you to virtually tour our new home here.
