Technology & Innovation

Embracing dynamism and experimentation

The Challenge

Pessimists sound smart. Optimists change the world. Human history is rife with examples of pessimists, alarmists, and incumbents creating barriers to innovation and stifling progress.

We support social entrepreneurs who celebrate progress and create open, dynamic environments where the future can be built from the bottom up.
