Why bother with theory.

To reach the moon, we couldn’t believe that the Earth is the center of the universe. Today, we won’t solve world problems by believing in outdated systems and ideas.

Our way of viewing the world steers us. Seeing the world effectively helps define our mission. And a clear mission keeps us motivated for good.

No theory is perfect, but they can suffice. And to find the true limits of theories, we have to put them into action. We criticize the ideas of the past by bringing new ideas into reality. We are radical social entrepreneurs because we believe that today’s big problems need new ideas.

The insights below were developed by thinkers who are working to create a deeper understanding of human society. Some of these ideas may seem esoteric, and not all may be applicable to every project. But our complex world needs many lenses.

We hope you can find fuel for your radical social entrepreneurship here.
