Our Think Tank Ecosystem

The Circle

Our research and operations are closely integrated. We offer clarity in high risk, high uncertainty areas by bridging industry and academia. We actively research emerging topics and engage businesses as well as communities. We design, distribute, validate, and apply our information products.

We bring together the best talent from industry, academia, as well as popular culture to explore these questions – we are more selective than Google and JPMorgan.

We explore what doing good means today with our brilliant family of thinkers and creatives.

The Sustainable Innovation Think Tank

Research for Strategic Foresight

There are better ways to think about what it means to do business and how we define impact. We believe a sustainable business model is rapidly becoming a standard as consumers give equal weight to value and values. We publish noteworthy external perspectives alongside our exclusive research.

When we get to the other side of this global assault, of COVID-19 and its economic fallout, our world will look very different. In that yet-to-be-imagined landscape, we want to invite you to help design a sustainable and principled economy.
