Identity Tech | Sanctuary Tech
Let's Get Transcendental
Welcome to the 10th edition of my newsletter, Sentí.earth - the insider space and home base devoted to Net Zero Leadership and Founder Mental Health by Isis Valliergues. We connect Neuroscience, Nature, and Entrepreneurship to help you build Self, Earth, and Brand Awareness.
This space is evolving fast and is now called IV Ventures - where you can follow the developments of my endeavours - Favorable, Gaia Founders, Sentí.earth, and The Net Zero Set. And we’re back to Substack for now as I consolidate my tech integrations. Welcome!

Dear Favorable Friends,
Wishing you the best this world has to offer and beyond for this New Year 2023.
You’ve understood it, this newsletter is not yet a tactical space for me, it is more of an insider space for professional intimacy. It’s connected to the way that I write, and the care that I hold for you, my readers and launch community.
Between providing value, programming and producing deep work, there is so much writing involved in the launch of these online businesses – hence generative AI’s grand success. I have written several deeper pieces lately – more on that later, and I intend to provide monthly updates here. My work is fundamentally authentic – I write all my material myself. Therefore, you can count on genuine content – only the pace is spread out between this here, and all the rest. Onwards!
Awareness as an Asset
After becoming a fundraising front runner in France and Europe in 2021, I chose to dedicate my time to going straight to market with my bootstraps. This is for a few reasons.
The first one, logical: it can take 3 – 6 months to fundraise. In that time I can go to market for agile independent testing while building value. It was a profound joy working in teams and tandems, still there was a certain firesale flavor which I found didn’t add up. It raised the SEC’s interest as well, although I’m absolutely not in favor of bottlenecking innovation either. The economic tides would then turn in a blink and this became a timely choice. I’m a scientist – trends, patterns, and numbers are my friends. There are wild X Factors in this race and I found it more reliable to figure out product-market fit systems directly rather than throwing spaghetti at the wall to see what stuck. As a Sagittarius, I’m more into arrows and bullseyes. Get to know me enough and you’ll grasp a glimpse of why I’m building a trend engine and extracting my strong suit.
I grew up living in front of the World Trade Center. I was bathed in banking as a child and had Wall Street’s Power Lunch for breakfast. I was there when the bubble burst and the towers fell. As we all do, I have memory, instinct, and intuition, and I tasted more nonsense than I cared for, considering the state of the world.
I am in absolute gratitude for the incredible opportunities and sponsorships I received, the momentum, strength and energy it affords me, and the lifelong relationships that began. It is a privilege I deeply cherish to be a part of the venture and impact industry as I fundamentally believe in its unique capacity to solve dire issues at scale – and we really need big and fast solutions in today’s worldwide system update.
Garnering exceptional support in the startup race inspired me to expand my activities in a long game that contributes to safe guarding personal and planetary wellness. It drove me to chisel and sculpt how I want to show up here, and how to best use my capacities in service to Ikigai philosophy and for the long term. Of course I am forever a fan of and a pro at shopping and will deliver the Favorable vision, in time.
The learning and environment accomplished in the venture space is phenomenal. With access to all the pieces necessary to produce a full solution as a creator, I took some time in 2022 to build on my pioneer theme connecting Neuroscience, the Climate, and Entrepreneurship with my second venture, Gaia Founders | Senti.earth.
I’m a passion operator - I was a passionate capitalist at 11 yrs old in an investment club for kids, and was mindblown by the Neuroscience opportunity which I embraced pivoting from Biomedical Engineering in 2002. I always wondered how I would connect these passions of Neuroscience and the Market. And by now I am sure you have all benefitted from biohacking insights from the field or fascinating readings from experts.
All that to say – Thank You!! For being here and coming along. I have gifts for you!
Wisdom as an Armor
So, those 3 – 6 months that I didn’t spend fundraising – I spent quantum leaping my sustainability expertise, securing partnerships, and weaving a strong fabric of Biodiversity Innovators, connecting Self, Earth, and Brand Awareness, and pioneering 2 spaces which I am calling Identity Tech and Sanctuary Tech, providing resources to nature keepers directly. You heard it here first.
The world is undergoing a hockey stick angle exponential evolution. The rate of change is Light Speed: Velocity, Acceleration, we’re undergoing Spatial Dimensional Leaps, no? The point of Neuroscience is to help us grasp and integrate our place and capacities in this space soup.
The value of humanity, interpersonal relationships, nature, self care and healing, experiential innovation – it’s a big world out there! So I’m visiting it and taking you along @senti.earth. After the Paris Pandemonium Cocoon, I am very grateful to be Butterflying around nature sanctuaries, high level wellness experiences, and connecting deep nature wisdom to quantum tech tactics in favor of nature conservation and mental wellness, as per the Gaia Founders remit, promise, and energetic signature.
The Fashion here is really good too – organic and divine!
Also, did you hear the worst job in America this January ‘23 according to Bloomberg is retail? “We take care of our own” said no one in fashion ever. Whatever, we’re here to make it better.
So, with infinite gratitude and total excitement, I write to you today to send you magnificent vibes to usher in this new year – and share what I’ve been working on lately!
I hope that you will enjoy it. It’s interactive.
The Key Element
If you take away one thing from today’s entry it is this:
I. The Climate Spirit is Free!
My first Indie Release Ebook is now available! Click on this button below to download it here now.
My publication with Unesco-backed HAS Magazine, Action Potential, was both the spark and the cornerstone piece of this work. 2 years later, I have a business on the subject, and this ebook is its introduction. Discover it now, for free.
Reviews and feedback are like gold to an early stage founder, I warmly invite you to share your feelings and leanings from this reading, in the review link at the end of the book. The threshold for Action Potential was “to catalyse positive change in society through the reading of the piece”. The Climate Spirit lives to lift your spirits and bring you value as we usher in humanity’s next transcendental chapter. Share your comments and feedback. And share this handbook generously with your friends, family, and community! We’re demystifying climate consciousness and leadership, it’s a trend everyone can get behind.
II. The Sacred Path to the Origin
Nearly a year ago, the World Economic Forum stated at the Sustainable Development Impact Summit that “The Accelerator Model is Scaling Private Public Collaboration”.
Further to garnering support from Sequoia Capital and IBM as a founder, I am proud to share my first partnership and collaboration for my Eco-Accelerator, Gaia Founders, with One Love Sanctuary and Reserve, in the Sierra Nevada de Santa Marta in Colombia. A multi-faceted collaboration and platform – One Sanctuary preserves the gateway into this precious biosphere, whose ancestral indigenous cultures and systems of knowledge were declared Intangible cultural heritage of humanity by Unesco in November 2022. These Cultures of Consciousness are profoundly nourishing the cognitive deep work that I provide in the writings which you can currently download for free. Come along to expand your consciousness, connect to ancient ancestral wisdom, learn real earth magic, and become a part of uplifting natural and cultural conservation, in the some of the world’s most special and exclusive sites for spiritual alchemy, regeneration, and wellness.
The suite of new Ebooks now available:
Introductory Chapter: Rebirth: Labyrinth One by Resident One
At home Path Meditation & Journal Prompts
Sacred Path to the Origin Guide
All of this is free – take the time to enjoy it! And share your feedback and comments in the dedicated review forms.
Psst, if you’ve been searching for the secret gateway into Gaia’s ancient mysteries, this is it. During the “Siècle des Lumières” - the Century of Lights that brought Europe out of the dark ages, artists, philosophers, and poets considered Isis to be the symbol of Nature’s secret laws - from this springs the “unveiling of Isis” in theology…
III. New Website!
It’s not fancy, it’s minimalist – I made it myself. But you can discover and get started on amazing resources for BioEconomics, and identity, cognitive, consciousness, and mindfulness work.
And here is the Bonus Key of this newsletter edition:
I am currently accepting my Gaia Founders Beta Circle where we develop Self, Earth, and Brand Awareness for those who share a common vision for the triple bottom line – People, Planet, and Prosperity, and where we do a whole lot more of this. Write to me at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are interested and I will forward you the uptake form application.
Think of it as your shortcut. 50% of the workforce is expected to change jobs in the coming year. Establish your Apex Advantage position now, that’s what we’re here for.
Did you know that $13Trillion Dollars are transacted daily on the planet, and that $1Billion of that is in e-learning? It’s a thing.
A note on the Latin American opportunity: it’s no wonder all Tech eyes are on LatAm and Africa. They are rich in natural resources and talent, and have amazing, awe inspiring cultures, yet have - for example - 6% penetration in consumer tech for Colombia, and the road systems are worse than in Asia or Africa. I have been going there for 6 years now and it was incredible to come equipped to contribute, meet the talent on the ground, and build the Gaia Founders bridge dedicated to strengthening the international innovation ecosystem for Nature-Based Capitalism.
So that’s the latest!
Excited for this year, embracing the build, the balance, and the purpose, fully. I am also grateful and thrilled to be here with you – a heartfelt thank you for coming along. We have a big program this year. Stay Tuned! Share us, join the conversation, and express yourself in our feedback forms, comment sections, and social channels. Hearing from you is my happy place.
I am always available for investor conversations, partnerships, collaborations – this is a community driven space. Reach out to me if you feel inspired, interested, and want to connect, email@example.com.
I especially encourage you to check out my Gaia Founders playlist which is growing daily with the curated sounds of my worldly and other-worldly travels. Category is: uplifting earth consciousness experience - set it on random and fly on the wings and winds of high vibes.
