Hello meet Hito.

Two lines represent two people leaning on one other form Hito. (He-Toh). Hito is the Japanese word for “human,”

Through mutual support, authenticity and accountability, true collaboration coalesces into more than was thought possible.

It is our core philosophy, and it is our secret sauce. Hito is a cultural shift, wisdom of togetherness.

Our philosophy, "Hitology" informs everything we do. Rooted in Hito, Women's Studies, and history, we've designed an accelerator program with intention and purpose especially for women.

Hito is about people like you.  It is about entrepreneurs and business leaders who get that delicate balance.
