ABOUT LAUNCH

LAUNCH connects the dots between innovation and impact.

LAUNCH is:

A convener. We bring together a diverse group of global stakeholders from the public, private, and nonprofit sectors to identify and define systemic challenges.
A curator. We foster connections that innovators and stakeholders need to succeed in the market, and have the promise to solve global challenges.
A connector. We attract and seek innovators from likely and unlikely sources that have the promise to change global systems through scalable innovations.
A content expert. We have our finger on the pulse of what's happening and insights into what's coming in the circular economy and the future of food.
An accelerator. We foster connections that innovators and stakeholders need to succeed in the market, and have the promise to solve global challenges.
A systems designer. Shaping future global systems is both an art and a science. We are committed to the practice of testing, refining, tweaking, and a healthy dose of risk taking, humility, and playing well with others.
