“We ultimately realized that we needed to go beyond a new company idea, to create an idea that would make all ideas in the field stronger, bigger, and more effective.”
The project team spent eighteen months analyzing the work of innovators, conducting anthropological observation in four countries, and synthesizing that research into a theory of change and a prototype of a new business. The project’s premise was that the environmental and social challenges caused by complex systems need unexpected approaches that require foundations, companies, and the public sector to partner in new ways.
