Peter Matthies

Peter is a former Venture Capitalist and founder of the Conscious Business Institute (CBI) in California.

In 2005, he decided to leave the traditional business world to found CBI, which now provides step-by-step approaches for individuals, leaders, and entire organizations to become more conscious, inspiring, and purpose-driven. CBI’s principles and programs have been applied in leading organizations including Starbucks, BMW Group, Siemens, Alllianz, Intel, Twitter, and others.
