Chi-Ming Chien of DaySpring
Dayspring is what would happen if you turned a monastery into a tech business. Chien spent two days a week walking around Bayview—the part of the city that tourist maps would intentionally exclude—looking for places of welcome, places where people had found peace.

Don Flow of Flow Automotive
Flow Companies, Inc. (36 automotive franchises) does business differently. All dealer information is available to the consumer.

This framework for operation comes from a simple theological principle: treat your customer as your neighbor.
