With a wealth of experience and expertise spanning all corners of the globe, we balance our time between our own business ventures and working with multinational corporations. We have brought our collective talent and passion to Newton Circus in hopes of embedding sustainability into everything we do.

So what exactly is it that we do? Good question. Simply put, we make meaningful things in responsible ways. We focus on key drivers of global change, including climate change, environmental degradation, poverty, development, natural resource scarcity, healthcare, migration and urbanization. These drivers inspire us to create products, services and applications that are good for people, planet and profit.

The production and consumption of goods and services can only flourish if they are within our social and ecological limits. It is the cornerstone of our business and a guiding principle of sustainability. Consumers are asking for it, governments are regulating it and any business that has a long-term commitment to maximizing shareholders returns has already laid the foundation for a sustainable future. Sustainability has evolved from the niche to the masses.

The mainstream consumer has shown an overwhelming propensity to support products, brands, companies and retailers whom are committed to responsible business practices. Of course, these consumers do not want to sacrifice anything in the process. It must be the same price and quality as the competition. But when you deliver and substantially improve the product or service in a sustainable manner, consumers will reward you.

If embedding sustainability into your company and improving your bottom line is something you are interested in, welcome to Newton Circus.

Why The Name


Why The Name

We are engineers in our heads and artists in our hearts. Leveraging the scientific brilliance of Sir Isaac Newton and mashing it up with all the creativity of a circus, our name reflects the thinking and creativity, which is at the heart of our business. But Newton Circus is also a nod to one of the best hawker centers in all the world, which just so happens to be found here in Singapore.



We Are

Our people are what make Newton Circus so unique. We hail from 6 different continents, speaking over 20 different languages and are armed with business experiences ranging from change management, innovations, consulting, product design, engineering, digital and social innovation and marketing.

But there is one thing that has led each of us to run off and join the circus: Our desire to leave this world in better shape than we found it.
