Episode #45 – Graham Boyd 

 June 15, 2023

In this captivating episode of the Regenerative Rising Podcast - Elevating Stories Activating Change, host Nisha Mary Poulose welcomes special guest Graham Boyd CEO & Founder of Evolutesix. Graham is an entrepreneur and business consultant specializing in the transformation of businesses into net-positive regenerative ecosystems. He is also a particle physicist, disruptive innovator, and author of several books including Rebuild and The Ergodic Investor and Entrepreneur. In this conversation, Graham and Nisha delve into the concept of conscious capitalisms and explore how businesses have the potential to increase their capacity to support life rather than diminish it. 

Graham's upbringing in Apartheid South Africa, coupled with his study of particle physics, informs his understanding of systemic injustice and its roots in societal systems rather than by individual people themselves. Graham emphasizes that human consciousness is shaped by the scaffolding of the systems we live in, and he draws parallels between the inequalities of apartheid and the harmful practices of modern businesses. He highlights the responsibility of the dominant institution of any era, which in our current context is the institution of business. He stresses that it is therefore imperative that we prioritize shepherding ourselves and our businesses through a massive paradigm shift towards a ‘net positive’ outcome.

Nisha and Graham explore the characteristics of a conscious company. Graham shares the benefits of a company structure that encompasses collective intelligence. He highlights that stakeholders of a business includes the next 7 generations, the planet, whole ecosystems and every human and no-human being involved in the supply web He proposes building a company as a fair share commons, a framework that enables all stakeholders to have a voice, and where profits and benefits are shared equitably. This would allow for a healthy ecosystem to emerge within and beyond the company.

Graham also discusses his recently published book, The Ergodic Investor and Entrepreneur. The term 'ergodic' is dissected, revealing a profound framework and mindset derived from physics, mathematics, and nature that offers businesses a roadmap to transform into ‘net positive’ systems and even entire ecosystems of interconnected businesses. Wrapping up the episode, Graham imparts practical advice for those interested in the transformative journey toward conscious and regenerative business practices.
