Honest – Honest dialogue, even the tough ones, with respect
Integrity – At the end of the day, did we give it our all? Can we step back and say, "Yes!"
Supportive – Treat others’ as you would want to be treated, and provide an environment that supports Own It Ventures’ employees, members, advisors and sponsors to accomplish their professional and personal goals.
