Build solutions for a better world

Education is important but so is putting what you’ve learned into practice. With an entrepreneurial mindset, the right tools, and by working together, we can change the world. Time to get those hands dirty.

The big problems facing our planet today — such as climate change, poverty, and inequality — are complex and severe, but they’re not unsolvable. Some of the best tools for solving big, complex problems are — and always have been — education, science, and research. They help us uncover new solutions, reach new frontiers, and see what was previously unseen.

However, even the most revolutionary new solutions won’t make much of an impact if they never leave the classroom or lab where they were developed. But they don’t have to stay there — we can help you take them out into the real world.

You don’t even need to have an idea or a team yet, we’ll help with both. What you need to have is an entrepreneurial mindset, and a strong urge to use it for making a positive change. If you feel like you could use a bit more experience and knowledge about entrepreneurship, let us teach you first.

When you’re ready, step right in. Take what you know, form a team, and build something that makes you proud and the world better. We’ll give you wings — all you have to do is fly.
