What We Think...
Our world is full. Some of this is good but much is bad. Business is a big part of both. How can we use scientific knowledge to help business make things better?
What We're Doing About It...
Hosted by the OCAD University Strategic Innovation Lab (sLab) in Toronto, Canada, our members around the world are undertaking a comprehensive program and research and practice that includes designing and testing an easy to use tool and method to reliably create high quality strongly sustainable business models; business models that enable firms to do good *TO* do well for a long time into the future. This will help create the conditions for human and other life to flourish.
