Message from the Director

“Innovation” is more than a buzzword or a synonym for “futuristic.” It is a strategic mindset and approach to thinking that fuels needed, systemic change to benefit us all. Our Center promotes the movement to a Quantum leadership model that predicts the needs, wants and barriers to progress in the future, then empowers and inspires entrepreneurship, experimentation and risk-taking to arrive at the destination we all want: a healthier, more sustainable world.
