Welcome to our blog!

We collected all the insights gained during various conversations and interviews led with thought leaders from all around the world. We did so in order to create a space in which new viewpoints and provocative thinking is shared, a space where (future) decision-makers can collide, co-learn and collaborate. Make it your own - become part of this driven community!

Some of the people we talked to and whose thoughts we share with you on the blog are, amongst others: Joe Kaeser, Ceo of Siemens; David Rowan, Editor-in-chief of WIRED UK; Jimmy Wales, Co-founder of Wikipedia; Prof. Amy Wrszniewski, Professor at the Yale School of Management; Muhammad Yunus, Nobel Peace Prize Laureate of 2006 and many more.
