We connect the dots between the best emerging innovations and the financial, social, and human capital to make them thrive.
We find smart people doing creative things, and we give them the tools to do those things better.
We exist for social innovators and are run by social innovators.
We identify gaps then support those on the first line of response. If holes remain, we incubate solutions.
Across it all, we build networks to ensure that the strongest ideas have the best support systems.
We deliver three types of capital to create networks of support for innovators.
