Our Strategy

Creating, educating, and training in Matrix of Peace Systems which include 1) Matrix theory, 2) Matrix model, and 3) Matrix technology.  Matrix technology is used to apply the theory and the model through education, training, curation, convening, and other tools that foster ecosystems of societal peace.

About Us

Peace Through Commerce® is a strategic, global, and educational nonprofit corporation dedicated to creating a world where all people enjoy peace and prosperity. Our technology–the Matrix of Peace Whole Systems Model– fosters breakthrough thinking which moves people from legacy-thinking, single-issue solutions that often focus only on effects, to well-designed, coordinated, multi-sector solutions that focus on all levels of the problem: values, causes, and effects.  The bringing together of historically separate and sometimes hostile sectors is the creative gift of Peace Through Commerce and its Matrix of Peace Whole Systems Model. In short, Peace Through Commerce is in the “mind-changing” business.

The Power of Accelerating Women Entrepreneurs® (“AWE”®)

Peace Through Commerce believes women entrepreneurs are key change makers to bringing whole systems peacebuilding to life.  Our Accelerating Women Entrepreneurs program  supports them in receiving personal consciousness work, training in our peacebuilding technology–the Matrix of Peace Whole Systems Model–and helping them expand their businesses, personal reach, and leadership through our fellowships.    We have fellowships operating in Israel and the West Bank.  We also incubate the important fellowship program of Shakti Leadership.

Our pilot program working with women entrepreneurs was launched in Israel and the West Bank strengthened our conviction that ordinary people can make their own communities more peaceful and prosperous.

Networking & Education

Peace Through Commerce brings together business leaders, activists and policy makers at the highest levels of the private, civil society, and public sectors, and engages them in interactive workshops using breakthrough technology and positively disruptive thinking to solve the world’s most challenging problems.

The Matrix of Peace Whole Systems Model™ is a positively disruptive, pioneering technology for designing peaceful and prosperous communities

The Matrix of Peace Whole Systems Model is a highly researched theoretical model, sourced from the work of generations of thought leaders from both the classical liberal tradition and the human potential movement.  It is the goal of Peace Through Commerce to bring these two forces–classical liberalism and the human potential movement–together to inform the public and peacebuilders of the values, beliefs, practices, and lessons learned that most optimally generate sustainable peace. The Model identifies peace-optimizing values and beliefs.  It also identifies a body of best practices, tools and data to aid the practitioner in using it.

We have developed and showcased the Matrix of Peace Whole Systems Model with partners around the world such as the Nobel Peace Prize Forum Oslo, Business For Peace, Conscious Capitalism, Inc., women entrepreneurs in Israel and the West Bank engaged in our Accelerating Women Entrepreneurs program, and women in our incubator Shakti Leadership Fellowship Program.
