M8 was created by Privy Circle, a growing transpacific community of global influencers. 

At Privy Circle, our mission is simple: to redefine what success looks like, professionally and personally, by empowering relationships that matter. We believe what's good for business should also be good for the world.

We believe in the power of raising awareness for issues that are important to our community. Our hope is that, as individuals who have achieved a certain amount of success, we may leverage our collective resources to affect change worldwide.

As a part of our commitment to giving back, we will be donating a percentage of M8’s profits to the National Asian Breast Cancer Initiative (NABCI), a 501(c)(3) non-profit program that seeks to raise breast cancer awareness within the Asian-American community. 

Privy Circle advocates a number of issues important to our community, such as clean energy solutions, human rights, homelessness, education, and health.
