We believe

Even though the world is starting to notice that we ought to deal wisely with the resources left, we get the impression that too much time is wasted on bullshit problems, while the hard nuts remain uncracked.

All the same, neither an overly serious face nor supersmart technologies alone will answer the soaring calls for transformation – but it needs playful approaches and all our creativity combined.

We don’t believe in competition or that “the market will fix it”. We will only make it if we tap into our collective intuition, take inclusion seriously and redefine the meaning of success.
