To be courageous and uncompromising in creating true social and environmental impact.
ECOLOGY, EDUCATION, EMPLOYMENT
What We Do
We draw on mother nature's wisdom and over 3.8 billion years of R&D to find solutions to today's sustainability and social challenges.
We create education and employment opportunities in bioregion hotspots by bringing ecological and technological progress that matters and is aligned with the UN Sustainable Development Goals.
How We Do It
Our mentors integrate development with growth as they guide our student interns to develop and test nature-based solutions for a variety of challenges, ranging from sustainable forestry to gaming in edutainment.
Why "Born Global"
The term born global is typically used by those in business and venture capital to describe startups and corporations that have an international focus from their inception.
For us, this international or global focus is twofold.
We ask our interns to think in terms of biomes, not borders - to work with those interested in or affected by similar ecological issues, regardless of nationality.
We continually work to grow our international network of expert mentors and strategic partners.
