Regenerative concepts,
spaces & projects

My purpose is to create spaces that enable and inspire transformation, allowing society to transition to a new paradigm.

I am a catalyst in that transition, connecting the old to the new by building bridges to the emerging unknown.

Within the hospitality and tourism industry, I focus on purpose-driven projects, especially retreat centres, resorts, mixed-use real estate and village-type concepts.  

Working at the intersection of placemaking and social innovation, I help to create holistic concepts and projects that embrace the new paradigm mindset.

I support people and businesses that want to embrace the opportunities of change

LET´S co-create

Atma is a Sanskrit term that refers to the human essence and our higher self.

I have been following that calling for the last decade, which allowed me not only to reinvent myself and my business but also to support a lot of people and projects that I have worked with since.

I help you to ground, structure and implement your visions and assess, consult and advise on existing businesses & new projects, their positioning, strategy and operational transformation.

Driven by a desire to work in holistic ways, with a systemic understanding and new approaches, I help your business with sense-making; bringing inspiration and practical advice.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality.
To change something build new models, that make the old obsolete.

I´m Martin Hohn. With a unique background, combining different worlds and a multitude of experiences and trainings, I offer a valuable skill-set to help navigate an increasingly complex world.

After a career in the international luxury hospitality management, working in 6 countries on 3 continents and being involved in 5 opening projects, I also worked in senior positions for two start-ups in the food and gastronomy industry. Since 2016, I am fully committed to my life purpose and work as an independent social entrepreneur, supporting my clients to realize their projects and to bring their dreams to the world.

I have worked with a wide range of people and organizations that wanted to evolve or reinvent their business by creating more purpose and innovation.

Let me support you with practical concept solutions, strategic transformation processes, project management and development.

Working internationally, I am based in Zurich, we can speak in German, English, French, and Spanish.

New ideas only gain adoption if you can experience them.
Let us create inspiring prototypes, that act as catalysts for a new paradigm
