The Marie Mae mission is simple:
We want to use our business as a force for good -
and help our stakeholders to do the same.
Let's aspire to:
Most businesses exist to only make money. We exist to create an impact - for our partners, customers and Marie Mae Business School Students.
Our products represent our world-changing customers: Unique, inspiring and made from the best stuff around.
We value each of our stakeholders - and we want to make sure they know they are our top priorities.
Lead WITH INTEGRITY
Cutting corners isn't our thing. And it never will be.
WHERE IT ALL STARTS
After spending a decade advising Fortune 100 clients on how to conduct and facilitate responsible investment in Africa, Jillian wanted to do more to support women entrepreneurs in these emerging markets. Blending Jillian's business expertise with her penchant for fine paper products, Marie Mae became her vehicle for making a difference in the world.
While launching Marie Mae, Jillian realized starting a business involves far more than the theories she learned in business school. This is why the Marie Mae Business School focuses on providing practical business training to women in emerging markets taught by women who have started businesses themselves.
Marie Mae is more than a simple “give back” company. From our vendors, to our customers and clients, to the women in our business school, Marie Mae equips each of our stakeholders to make a sustainable impact through business.
