Our values

Make A Difference
We exist to get people back into high street shops. We have both the opportunity and responsibility to make a massive, positive impact on the world and care deeply about furthering this mission.

Bring Positive Enthusiasm
We tackle every opportunity and challenge with positivity, and understand that this energy is contagious and builds incredible momentum. “Yes, and…” trumps “yes, but…” every time.

Take Entrepreneurial Risks
To make a difference in the world each of us must take bold risks, driven by our mission and backed up with data. We’re not afraid to get things wrong and quickly adjust our course.

Communicate Openly and Honestly
We do our best work and move fastest when we communicate openly with trust. We value and seek out respectful disagreement in pursuit of improving our work and constantly raising our standards.

Be Hungry For Knowledge
We’re always curious to know more and make space for learning. We believe that sharing knowledge creates a rising tide that lifts all boats.

Be Our Best Selves
We understand that everyone works differently and gets the best out of themselves in different ways. We work best as a team when we are individually and collectively aware of how we all work best.

Scientifically Minded
We make bold bets on the future based on our vision, experience and assumptions, then always seek to validate those bets with empirical data.
