The Approach

Societal Platforms is an approach to inspire systemic change at scale. Imagine an environment where actors from civil society, government and markets can combine their efforts towards a unified purpose. And as they co-create diverse and sustainable solutions, they add to what is a dynamic, ever-evolving resource base. In time, the solutions and knowledge assets diversify, as their impact grows exponentially.

The Societal Platform approach, at its heart, aspires to build the playground necessary for this kind of co-creation. By bringing together risk capital, deep technology skills, a commitment to the commons, and strong mission leadership – it seeks to help cause-innovators flourish when working at unprecedented scale.
