Our Team

We’ve gathered a team of research scientists, creative leads, impact investors, advisors, and digital tech experts who are motivated by a spirit of co-creation, open-mindedness, continuous learning, and scientific grounding. Our board members, advisors, interns, and young adult advisory councils and co-creation collectives guide our mission to make the greatest impact at the largest possible scale.

We strive to combine the inspiration of hope with the rigors of science.
