How We Do It
We collaborate with conscious leadership in the SDG marketplace to develop accelerating platforms for the creation, sharing and scaling of financial models, sustainable development project pipelines, ESD education programs, and bottom-up advocacy programs through:
We develop, produce and implement creative convenings that encourage meaningful collaboration and alignment with the Global Goals, including action-oriented Intent-to-Impact Labs, intimate Influencer Summits, and expert Thematic Tracks in partnership with leading conveners.
We pull from a deep global network of innovators, global influencers and subject matter experts to assemble short order task forces that collaborate on the design, funding and implementation of sustainable, scalable infrastructure solutions throughout the world.
We work with innovators in financial engineering and sustainable infrastructure development to dramatically increase the speed by which projects with potential for powerful environmental and societal impact go from ideation to proof-of-concept to scale, providing traction in their quest to find strategic partnerships, funding and marketplace success.
