120VC – Why Work For Us?


Our Mission

That every 120VC team member exemplify the spirit of servant leadership; to be the leaders that all others aspire to be.  To show the world that extraordinary leadership does not require official authority, but does require that we put the prosperity of our stakeholders before our own.

Our Purpose

120VC exists to enable our stakeholders to create efficiently and cost effectively; to light a fire under innovation and crush the cost boundary so that invention and prosperity become the status quo.

Our Approach

Innovation requires that we constantly challenging the status quo; that we possess a willingness to:

  • Take the initiative toward bold action
  • To make mistakes, and most importantly…
  • To immediately put the lessons learned into action for the benefit of our stakeholders.

We live our Mission and Purpose daily by:

  • Delivering the highest value possible to our clients by creating win’s for them.
  • Working with our client’s and their team members as a single integrated high functioning team, and…
  • Our capacity to contribute positively to the growth and well-being of the clients we serve, our team members, our vendor partners, our competitors and the Project Portfolio Management Community at large.

Our Stakeholders

Our Team Members, Clients, Vendors, Competitors, Shareholders, the Project Portfolio Management Community, and the Environment.

  • We sincerely care about people and demonstrate this in our words, our actions and how we deliver
  • We think like entrepreneurs, innovate and challenge the status quo to create substantial wins for our clients
  • We believe that HOW we win defines us
  • We do what we say we are going to do, we are accountable
  • We find Win – Win scenarios; trade-offs sell our stakeholders short
  • Our team members mistakes are safe with an obligation to share the lessons learned
  • We create an environment where people are encouraged to BE authentic
  • If we think someone is making a mistake, we have an obligation to voice it
  • WE WALK THE TALK…
  • Our actions consistently demonstrate that we sincerely care about our clients and their success
  • Our measure of success is our client’s success – we win for them
  • With the above commitments in mind, we say what needs to be said, when it needs to be said, the way it needs to be heard, to those that need to hear it
  • We are servant leaders

At 120VC, we recognize that our cutting edge comes from the level of talent we are able to recruit and retain. Our Team Members are our strength, our heart and our hands! As a Company committed to Conscious Capitalism, we strive to reward that talent with a wide range of benefit options.

Time-Off

We work hard. We play hard. We believe in balance. Our Time-Off policies reflect that. We have Unlimited Vacation Time.

Our Sick Leave Policy reads very simply: If you are feeling under the weather stay home. If you are infectious, DO NOT go into the office! If you choose to work while out sick, we appreciate it. If you don’t, that’s probably a better decision.

“Here's to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They're not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can't do is ignore them. Because they change things. They push the human race forward. And while some may see them as the crazy ones, we see genius. Because the people who are crazy enough to think they can change the world, are the ones who do.” - Rob Siltanen
