We believe that imaginative collaboration is a competitive advantage.


Every great human accomplishment, discovery, invention, product, movement, or theory began with a curious mind moving from "what if?" to "why not?" Historically, this was often a lone voice calling into a void. But in today's interdependent world, innovators who make an impact have learned to power their ideas with the energy of a diverse network. Entrepreneurs engage civil society, government reaches out to business, and individuals look to community networks as allies and assets. Shoppers are philanthropists; brands are diplomats. Creative capitalism embraces, exemplifies, and redefines humanitarianism. And activists make companies stronger, smarter, more relevant, and more appealing. Together is smart.
