WE ARE MAD

 >> IT ALL SEEMS IMPOSSIBLE UNTIL ITS DONE. 

 WE KNOW ITS NOT. 

it is the people who are mad enough to think they can change the world who actually do

We are a community of provocative researchers and entrepreneurs, social justice activists and philosophers, courageous migrants and company leaders, mind boggling artists and writers, creative engineers and lawyers, curious diplomats and backpackers. We've represented the United Nations, spoken at TEDx talks, won World Championships, been featured in New York Times, Harvard Business Review, National Geographic Traveller, Fast Company, CNN, BBC, and more.
