For innovation to occur, it needs openness and collaboration.

That’s our theory, anyway.

Here's our philosophy...

Idea Icon for Community Lab

Openness & Transparency. Without discovery we can’t find the opportunities, people or the ideas where we can thrive. Let’s bring down the walls, break the silos.

Trust & Psychological Safety. Without trust or an environment where people feel safe to share ideas and challenges, it is hard to foster an open, honest dialogue about what is important to us.

Diversity & Inclusion. Innovation is not just for startups or universities. All of us can start ideas and contribute to others. It takes a rich diversity of skill, experience, knowledge and passion to make great stuff.

Unconditional help. In a transactional world, we need to be braver. Give without expectation and acknowledge those who help us along the way. Some refer to this as a 'culture of abundance'.

Respect. We need to listen deeply, treat others with respect and engage on their terms. It is only by listening deeply to others, sharing our success and failures, that we will all better understand how we can each, individually and collectively, best shape our worlds.
