Purpose. Innovation. Value

While there has been plenty of change in the world of finance and capital, hardly any of it has utilized innovative thinking as a means to empower individuals.

At Reconsider we provide social impact economy research, development, dialogue and business advisory services focused on the integration of community capital, local investing, and social enterprise.  Our core purpose is to create and nurture a generative and collaborative ecosystem.

We are excited and energized daily at the opportunities and possibilities of our mission.  We recognize and have chosen to participate in a movement of unbridled passion and true conviction to create a better future for everyone in our community.  We are confident our enthusiasm will be both infectious and a positive catalyst for change.

We invite you to explore our site, attend our events, read our articles, consider our services and join the conversation of how we might create a more resilient and sustainable future for us and the generations to come.

Where is your money?

If you could reconsider one thing, what would that one thing be? Community? Investing? Education? Agriculture?

The ability to “reconsider” something is a powerful notion. It allows you to reflect and react. It allows you to extract the positive while minimizing the negative. Most important, it allows you to reshape something to enhance it and make it better.

Reconsider was founded on this very same philosophy. 

Growing out of the very significant events since 2008 that rocked the financial services industry and consumers alike, Reconsider launched in December 2011 in Ypsilanti, Michigan with the objective to reshape and innovate the way we work with, create, and utilize our wealth for a more secure future.

Reconsider aims to be the voice of the tens or even hundreds of thousands of people who to date have not had one. Those people who have the fortitude to go against the grain to create and support an independent, resilient and sustainable local economy.

We at Reconsider are aware that change does not happen overnight and it doesn’t flow from the top down. Our grassroots approach starts local and will grow over time as our message resonates with more people. Join Reconsider as we shape a new financial frontier where more consumers will have a greater say and enhanced control of their money.  Subscribe to our newsletter here!

So what are you going to reconsider?
