Innovation comes from the fringes. Creative outliers. Unexpected collaborators. Niche organizations. And out-of-the-way places. Today, creative commerce can happen anywhere. The entrepreneurial village is now truly global. Kevin Kelly's 'thousand true fans' can knock on your door, wherever you are. You can scale your impact and change an industry without rapid hockey stick growth. An evolution in social values, economics, community politics, and distributed technologies have given rise to the 'new cottage industry' — connecting the innovations of local entrepreneurs, creative makers, and innovative organizations to the global marketplace.
TEACH. INSPIRE. IMPROVE. We teach to help our clients unlock their full potential. We inspire with democratized creativity, innovation and discovery tools. We improve outcomes by connecting purpose to performance.
