We focus on the health of people, planet, and profits.

We are a social impact incubator working with entrepreneurs and Investors who focus on the UN Global Goals.

We harness emerging technologies, design systems, business models, to rapidly develop social innovations in our lab and and in the real-world. Coupling these toolsets with a global network of critical-thinkers, leaders, and investors –that span every sector of expertise– we drive measurable social change.

 

WHAT WE DO:

LAB of The Possible

We prototype systems and platforms where cognitive AI, sensors and real-world problems intersect. We work to enable solutions across sensor enabled edge IoT applications from agriculture and ocean health to computational neuroscience, and adaptive educational tools. We rapidly develop low and high-fidelity prototypes to prove out ideas and innovation.

STEAM

SOCIAL IMPACT INCUBATOR

We make early stage investments and coach founders to scale innovation and positive social change. Our spinout SolveOS teaches youth how to thrive in a rapidly changing world and helps enable resilience and skill development for this new era. Our healthcare initiatives focuses on large scale population health.

Test

Solve Sessions

Would you invest 8 hours to define new opportunities, identify emerging markets, prototype ideas & align your team on a clear vision to move forward? We immerse teams and show them how to facilitate innovation and empower them with the tools and methods that are newly available to all of us. We have conducted solve sessions with the NYC DoE, UN, IBM, Cisco, Hitachi, Arrow, Libraries, Schools, and Universities.

We have helped many organizations map what is possible now.

 

You may know what IoT is, and you think you know what AI can do. But do you understand what they can do, how they work, and how you can use them for good?

Everyday you read articles and watch videos on what is new. It is an unrelenting current of new technologies, ideas, ways to work, and tools to do so. The ability to think through the market implications married to your organization's needs while being able to distinguish the art of the possible from what is possible now is not only difficult, but risky. This can be at once, both fascinating yet frustrating. How does one choose what technology or trend to follow, or more importantly what to invest in? How do you communicate the value of a given technology to a team or management?

Ultimately how does it create a better society and social impact?

After working in the innovation space for twenty years we have seen trends come and go as well as being seamlessly adopted. From Bricks to iPhones and app stores. IoT, drones, makerspaces, crowdsourcing, the sharing economy, AI and driverless cars. We have been in the labs, garages, conferences, board rooms, network operation centers and have collaborated with many organizations to help much of this come to maturity.

We will help you see what is possible today and de-risk your journey to the future.

This is a selection of our partners past and present:

 

90 Days, 12 weeks, 3 months or 1 quarter.

How ever you want to internalize the timeframe is up to you, but the process is up to us. Our three step process is mapped below. It sets the best path for success and trims the long voyage of innovation by months and or years.

Our process focuses on three phases:

First we Ideate. This is not a typical brainstorming session. This is a typhoon. You will be immersed in what is actually possible today through demonstrations, field trips and exploration sessions. We will explore business models, stakeholder behaviors and what could prevent success. This will help you by rapidly landscaping the possible and narrow in on a small suite of ideas.

Then we Create. Now it is time to make something new. This is the moment of invention when an idea comes to life and is tangible, holdable and can not be misinterpreted any longer. We work with your team to realize a vision through every and any means possible. We model, print, mill, mold, program, connect, make it blink and come alive.

Now we Deploy. Now that we have a new prototype and business model it is time to package it and make it look great. Write the copy, shoot the video and create the animations. Is this a new brand or built on an existing one? We help you work through the options to protect it or open source the IP and let the world know what it is that you have been up to.

Interested in working together?

Contact us below and please take the time to describe what you are trying to achieve. Where are you in the organization? What has been an issue that is in the way of achieving the possible? What are you inspired by?

We will get back to you shortly to discuss your future.
