KINS Innovation Networks to manifest “conscious sustainability” have been proven by some 40 networks over 40 years and the method is now gifted free here below.
“KINS” signifies that we are all one.
KINS networks practice “heart-mind” collaboration to achieve the most daunting of global sustainability goals working without pay.
KINS Operating Principles
- Our strategy is generosity and our intention is wonder.
- A deal is a good deal when it is good for all concerned, especially Earth.
- Everyone does what we love to do and do well without charge… and little else.
- We sit at the table of unknowing and invite spirit/God to co-create with us for the highest good for all concerned.
- When someone gets upset, we go within to ask what within us is asking to be healed… and later we bring the story of that healing back to the group to enrich the field.
- Everyone gets equal time at the mike and we return each others’ calls and emails promptly.
- All information is available to all members all the time.
KINS Innovation Networks are self-organizing networks of key, collaborative, high-integrity leaders in widely diverse fields who come together by invitation to achieve inspiring innovations while enjoying their kindred spirits. These networks leverage existing ‘conscious sustainability’ initiatives with powerful new ones to manifest innovations faster, cheaper, with higher impact and with more fun.
KINS networks manifest a ‘whole systems’ design for sustainability and are based on the understanding that ‘we are all one’.

Types of KINS:
In January of 2013, CapitalMissions.com began gifting an innovation method it has been successfully developing over several decades. Called KINS Innovation Networks, KINS uses a love-based method of collaboration successful in the fields of finance, energy, agriculture, women’s empowerment, local living economies, discrimination and poverty-alleviation, among others.
Over 35 years, the rich KINS energy field has demonstrated it can produce results faster, more quickly, with higher impact and more fun than innovation methods based largely on analysis and strategic planning. More than 30 small networks of servant leaders convening over decades have adopted and then improved on this model that you can now use as an open source tool.
A Video Series This series that brings to life six different ways of understanding KINS, including an overview, the traditional KINS method, an innovation of a phone-call-based and less-expensive method, a ‘local living economy’ method and a picture of why KINS may out-perform other innovation methods based on the science of productive energy fields. See video one by clicking here.
A Description of KINS – describes the operating principles, actual KINS results, the criteria for choosing members of KINS networks and instructions on how to start a KINS. In particular, it describes the scientific basis behind why this method works, as researched by ICRL, formerly the Princeton Engineering Anomalies Research Lab.
Some KINS Results – Measurable impacts from KINS Innovation Networks have a track record of high results as described at Capital Missions – CMC Networks. For example in 1990, The Investors’ Circle was created and successfully manifested the social venture capital industry, with the companies funded by the Circle achieving returns on a par with those of early-stage venture capital nationally. Members have invested more than $152.9 million in more than 250 companies, with follow-on capital to these companies of more than $4 billion. (See InvestorsCircle.net.)

A Case Study of a KINS gives a recent real-life example of how a KINS Innovation Network is being manifested within a matter of months at very little cost. Called Care First, this KINS has the mission “we are creating a world economy governed by putting Care First.” Click to see video of Care First KINS leader. Click to read about Care Credits Overview.

The KINS Staff is blessed to be housed at Green America in the Spreading KINS Network division, funded by a $100,000 grant. Its program is being co-created by Susan Davis and her colleague, Marilyn Levin with the active participation of Green America founder and president, Alisa Gravitz. Green America has been an innovative leader in helping create sustainability, conscious consumers and social investing.
Capital Missions Company – The KINS Innovation Network method is being gifted to the world through Green America by Capital Missions Company, now a sole proprietorship called CapitalMissions.com. Launched in 1990 by Susan Davis to green the global economy, CMC used KINS to create more than 7 different innovation networks related to social investing. More than 13 other successful KINS networks were launched in various fields of sustainability and consciousness. For a full history of the company’s practices and theory, see www.capitalmissions.com.
A Whole-Systems-Approach to KINS is offered by this power point of The Tipping Point Network, which initially sought to help the many niches of sustainability grow from a 2-3% to a 10% market share, after which an innovation sustains its own growth. This power point gives a historic perspective on how KINS was developing as of 2011.
