The Company History & Insight Behind
The Impact-Driven Business Model
Integrated Impact Driven Ventures Inc (Integrated Ventures), is a privately-held, for-profit Nevada corporation formed in late 2015 . We were formerly known as Plastic2Power USA, but changed our name to reflect a more refined and integrated business model.
The above video the Infinite Game - Mindset To Business in the 21st Century presented by Simon Sinek shares our Founder/CEO's thinking of how businesses in the post covid world should be structured and run today. In particular, the importance of offering a Just Causein building of a viable brand that shares a collective mission.
To date our Founder and his partners have collectively invested USD $2.4 million over the years years into the development of the various business models outlined on this website. We refer to it as The "Mother of All Start-ups" projects. The journey here has been under construction a long time, delayed by a global Covid pandemic. This led us to make changes to reflect current global economic conditions, new designs, structures and process changes. One such change is explained below:
When we first formed Plastic2Power (now Integrated Ventures), we focused on building a plastic waste collection network and converting this waste into oil (the origin of plastic). We intended to use a process line built in China, which generated 1 gallon of oil for every 10 pounds of waste waste collected. However, as oil prices dropped from near $100 to under $20 a barrel over the years, it delayed the process. Today oil is back up to $45.
In the "America First" and "Built in the USA" culture, we once again did what entrepreneurs do - we adopted a new approach to streamline our objectives further as a jobs creation opportunity. Although our Plastic2Power plastic waste to energy model remains one of our core businesses, today it converts waste to syngas to fuel electric turbine generators without the need to create plastic oil, making for an even more eco-friendly processing model.
By designing our processing system away from oil, we no longer need to depend on China to build our equipment, a major advantage. By acquiring waste directly from local recycling companies, we no longer need to build a collection network, a huge initial and ongoing cost savings. All in all, these changes will streamline the Plastic2Power business model and save millions over the years in the process.
Despite the many delays in getting to the launch pad, these delays proved to benefit us in many ways. It made us rethink our strategies, our structures, to redesign our processes and repurpose our integrated objectives. Along the way we developed new business models like AirWater PlugHUBS. Today,
Integrated Ventures is positioned to excel forward.
