In the lab


We read, think, and write about social impact trends.

We design, test, and roll-out tools and methods. We incubate initiatives and ventures. 

We spend quite a bit of time in the lab. Come meet us there.



Our blog covers topics of social innovation, strategy and organizational development, collaboration, fundraising, and others. Come discover what we think, and share your ideas.

Initiatives and ventures

We identify, design, and incubate our own initiatives, often in partnership with collaborators. These initiatives tackle unmet needs, address emerging opportunities, or approach problems in new ways.

Current initiatives include From Roof to Table, a vertical farming education initiative; Target Zero, a program to inspire people and communities to embrace low-carbon practices; and the Connectivity Challenge Fund, a social investment fund that supports internet access.



Tools and methods

Starting, building, and growing effective impact ventures requires tools, methods, processes, practices. 

Strategic management, innovation and design thinking, organizational development, facilitation and collaboration, fundraising: we develop tools and approaches that help organizations take their social innovations into the world, and to scale.
