LAUNCH Partners

LAUNCH unites the most innovative organizations in the world. 

Our partners are dedicated to creating a future that we’ll actually want to live in. From Fortune 500 companies to world-class design agencies to governments, our partners are a rare group of organizations who are leading their industries and the world towards the future.  

Each partner brings unmatched commitment and expertise, global networks, and critical resources, along with a realistic understanding that they can’t create a better future on their own. Whether introducing a sustainable packaging innovation into a global supply chain, bringing clean water to five million people in Rwanda through product and financial innovations, or building a partnership with local governments to promote healthy eating in the South Pacific, our partners work closely throughout the LAUNCH network, taking action to create a better world for future generations.

Founded by NASA, Nike, USAID, and the U.S. Department of State, LAUNCH has since united new partners like IKEA, eBay, VF Corp., Novozymes, and Kvadrat, along with several regional and national government organizations.

What is special about LAUNCH is the strong partnership of government, academia, and industry. Public-private partnerships are exactly what we need to help sustainable innovations go to scale.
