CLub Zero Manifesto
Big numbers drive the world we live in
We’re constantly striving for more — more money, more cars, more followers, more friends, more likes — the truth of values often lies in the phrase “the bigger, the better.”
The number zero is often undesirable. It stands for nothing, null, and void.
Zero is defined as the absence of quantity or magnitude.
But in some facets of our world, zero could change everything.
Imagine our society in which all its citizens experienced ZERO disease,
ZERO unemployment, ZERO pollution, and ZERO homelessness.
Imagine ZERO worldwide.
That is our cause, inspiration, and passion.
To us, ZERO is the greatest number.
We are an innovative public sector financing mechanism that will move the world towards zero-poverty, zero-disease, zero-homeless. We are a govtech advisory group that invests in impact venture building tech solutions that move the world towards Zero. We are committed to achieving zero: zero poverty, zero disease, zero illiteracy, zero waste/pollution, and zero inequality.
To that end, Stat Zero’s philosophy is to invest, build, and create solutions to make the world a better place. We aim to do this by building GovTech Venture Solutions by sourcing startup technology that solve Zero problems; providing GovTechVenture Service by leveraging corporate, nonprofits; and organizing GovTech Venture Ecosystem by creating a vetted membership model for the ecosystem.
All of this is guided by our core values. We believe that our attitude, behavior and actions make Stat Zero a special place and drive our long-term success. Our core values of Integrity, Passion, Reason, Entrepreneurship, Appreciation, and Growth define the essence of our firm and reflect who we are and what we do, every day.

We are proud of our colleagues, accomplishments and partners in business.
The third is Reason. Stat Zero believes that all actions and decision stem from the concept of First Principles. We base our decisions on the idea that everything can be traced to a basic assumption that cannot be deduced any further. Using these explicitly stated assumptions, we operate with reason and use diligent research to execute sound business decisions.
The fourth is Entrepreneurship. We identify opportunities, launch initiatives, overcome challenges and take risks with the mind-set of an owner. Stat Zero moves forward and makes decisions to ensure the mission is advanced. We are courageous, agile and hard-working, and we do not confuse activity with accomplishment. We take responsibility and assume accountability.

[JH1]This copy will need to be updated once we determine what we want to do.
Once option – a scholarship for emerging managers (a one for one model) or a quarterly grant application for organizations to submit requests for funding (e.g. $25k grants to non-profit organizations devoted to one of our segments – disease, pollution, or poverty). I, for one, like the latter option once we are able to implement this program. We can have the community manager manage the program.
[JH2]Assuming this works to list Kingson Capital. Do we want to list Mexico and the Manos offices? If so, what is the best city to list here?
