Founder Conscious Business Institute, LLC. 

Peter Matthies is a former Venture Capitalist and founder of the Conscious Business Institute (CBI). Having witnessed the far-reaching disengagement, frustration of employees and the resulting inefficiencies of today’s business paradigm as a Venture Capitalist, he left his career in 2005 to develop new business and leadership approaches for creating inspiring, sustainable and purpose-driven organizations.

CBI’s unique culture & leadership approaches and programs have since been implemented in organizations from five to 150.000 employees, including Starbucks, Intel, BMW Group, Twitter, or Allianz Insurances.

Peter was involved in international technology and finance business for 17 years. He was a Principal for one of the world’s leading Private Equity and Venture Capital firms, Apax Partners & Co, and for b-business partners, a $ 1 billion pan-European VC fund.

Peter has published two books, over 100 articles on business, technology, leadership, and martial arts. He is a frequent keynote speaker and serves as a global advisor of the Climate Prosperity Alliance. His deepest driver is to support professionals in understanding who they are here to be, so they can use these deeper insights to make a meaningful impact in a changing world.
