Good Business Has Heart.
From inception, we have always been on a mission to chase a
different kind of green. The strongest companies care about the
causes that matter most. We are investing in a future that
prioritizes our planet as much as it does people.
When made accessible and desirable, people will not only welcome
but rally behind sustainability. We aim to unify corporations and
their consumers to create an unstoppable force towards
transparency. The strongest solutions come from communication,
collaboration, and meaning.
Who We Are
Jonah Geschwind has always loved music and became fascinated with the
concept of sustainability after spending a year in Copenhagen,
Denmark, where it was embedded into his everyday lifestyle. After
returning to Los Angeles, he started connecting his two passions,
which led him to the event industry working at Insomniac Events.
At Tulane University, Jonah met Jacob Chandler, a passionate
environmentalist; together, they incubated this theory that
sustainability would be more widely adopted if made more
accessible and desirable. They were driven to bring this
eco-friendly lifestyle to music festivals and their
audiences. Soon after meeting, the two started Green Disco, the
first iteration of their business. Green Disco aimed to help
festival organizers engage their audience in a series of
solutions that maximized environmental impacts. They helped
create one of the first climate-positive music festivals in the
world, and the first in the United States.
While working at these events, it became clear that: corporations
desire to spend more on sustainability but often lack the direction,
knowledge, and time to develop a process and execute it
efficiently. Events don’t usually prioritize sustainability even
though their experiences can be one of the most effective
opportunities to engage individuals. These corporations also want
access to the eco-conscious demographic, but many do not fully
understand how to build this relationship.
As active members of this demographic, Jonah and Jacob saw an
opportunity to create initiatives for corporations that would maximize
engagement with existing consumers and help drive new ones. After two
years of working directly with music festivals, they sought to expand
their work through Green Disco throughout the entire event industry to
have a more substantial environmental impact.
In early 2022, Green Disco connected with Qi Venture Partners, a firm
with a large corporate footprint that specializes in incubating
companies at the forefront of their respective industries. Since
joining forces, they have collectively started to grow their vision
across the event sector and evolved the business into Scope
