Chris Torrance’s academic mind gives him a bird’s eye view of business. His takes on value chains, competition, and employee ownership and mindset prove he’s a man who’s out to do good and knows how to do it. Luckily, Chris doesn’t stop at theories and concepts. He’s flown from Chicago to Tanzania in search for the perfect way to take his ideas to the ground.
Chris is now in the Philippines and runs Ambension Silk Enterprise - a social enterprise dedicated to revitalizing the silk and textile industry in the Philippines. The company prides itself not only on its sustainable, innovative, and ethical practices all throughout its supply chain, but on the sheer quality of its products. The bird, it seems, has finally got the worm.

Maximizing the value created in supply chains
Creating non-zero sum games across industries
Overcoming the employee mindset
The importance of creating ownership
