"The idea of Ahki grew on me because I don't believe in the ideology that modern economics has sold us, 'as a company, and as well as an individual, if you want to make profit you have to be a ruthless, selfish entity and that if you consider ethics in your way of business that will hinder your possibilities to make profit.' Ahki is meant to be a portal where you can find companies that do not believe in that; and that 'surprisingly' are making money while acting in an ethical manner."
