Challenge

Challenges like food insecurity or climate change defy problem solving when we lack the know-how to communicate and collaborate with those who think differently than we do. Yet, few universities teach the skills needed to build partnerships, create shared visions, and innovate collaboratively. Once learned, these skills are game changers for the next generation of global leaders, translating research into action on the ground and scaling small efforts into world-changing success stories.

Solution

We have trained over 1000 problem solvers around the world who want to collaboratively innovate. Now we want to double it! The Global Knowledge Initiative's training program targets bright minds focused on those problems that affect poor and vulnerable communities. We provide training, mentorship, & simulations. With your help, we want to radically increase the number of people who have the necessary skills and resources to build the partnerships and solutions they need to tackle BIG challenges.

Long-Term Impact

Olengo Alex attended our Collaborative Innovation and Entrepreneurship training in Uganda. He credits us with helping him develop new skills in entrepreneurship, strategy creation, and innovation that led to a full scholarship graduate program. With his new skills, Olengo is connecting companies that manufacture tools for African farmers to communities across East Africa. We want 1000 people like Alex to unleash the skills needed to feed, clothe, educate, and connect our planet and its people.
