Who We Are
We founded RTG on the premise that those of us that can make a difference should.
We are at our best when working directly with action-oriented clients who care passionately about their philanthropy and investments. From discovery to execution of operations, we empower your vision of making a positive change and deliver results that make a difference.
Red Telescope began in 2013 as a joint effort between friends who wanted to leave a positive mark on the world. Our founders had reached success in business and government, but felt there was something more they could do.
The name Red Telescope refers to our goal of making the world a better place by looking at global trends. Successfully tackling international problems like poverty, agricultural development, human trafficking, and fragile state governance requires the ability to envision a distant future, as one does through a telescope.
We are a company focused on sharpening the impact of globally minded organizations, businesses, and individuals that mix purpose and value, social justice and entrepreneurship to bring prosperity and dignity to all.
