WHY AN ECOSYSTEMS LAB?

We are facing critical societal transformations and environmental challenges where businesses play a critical role. Billions of dollars are invested every year into new innovations and ventures, that often lack any meaningful direction. This is bad for the world and bad for business.

We believe the greatest space of opportunity for business evolution emerges when breakthrough innovation meets the pursuit of positive social and environmental impact.

To seize this opportunity, business leaders need to craft new visions, mindsets, skills and strategies, anchored in collaboration, systems thinking and purposeful innovation.

Embracing an ecosystems perspective implies understanding a business as a living system coevolving with a larger network of entities in rapidly changing environments; all being part of a larger social fabric and dependent on earth’s resources.

Ecosystems are dynamic and co-evolving communities of diverse actors, forging superior ways to create and capture new value; beyond the capacity of any single organisation.
