Introducing Hito:

Where Collaboration Ignites Extraordinary Growth!

Two lines representing two people leaning on one another 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 our secret sauce.  Hito is a cultural shift, wisdom and togetherness.

Our philosophy, Hitology informs everything we do.  Rooted in Hito, Women's Studies and History, we've designed entrepreneurship programs 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.
