Mission and Core Values
First Person Publishing works with communities around the world to unlock the value of their creative capital. By collaborating in the development of this creative capital for the global marketplace, we create both social and financial returns.
Effective action originates in the first person.
Thinking in the first person compels people to action in a unique manner—it evokes a more committed sense of responsibility. We approach our relationships with a first person perspective; therefore, we work with others as partners. We do not seek patrons, nor do we seek to be patrons. We believe in working together in mutually beneficial relationships. We will work persistently to create value for everyone who is invested in First Person Publishing so that they are always confident in their relationship to us.
Social entrepreneurship is powerful.
The entrepreneurial spirit within the private sector is central to effectively addressing complex issues in the modern world. We know this because the private sector can generate social as well as financial returns. By focusing on the development and sale of products as an innovative business, we seek to translate our success into opportunities for communities that face serious challenges in the world.
The world is driven by ideas—it is inspired by stories.
The ideas that frame the world are undergoing constant adaptations. From these ideas evolve the narratives that inspire us. In the 21st century, dynamic, positive characters and plots are the basis of increasingly valuable creative capital.
All people have something valuable to offer the world.
First Person Publishing develops and promotes stories and materials from a variety of geographies, cultural and physical. We recognize that all people can participate in the global economy if their creative capital is accurately aligned to the appropriate market. Accessing the open market is difficult for many people in the developing world. First Person Publishing embraces the challenges of facilitating this process.
