Pioneers of the Maker Movement

As a for-profit social enterprise, formally founded in 2012, our strategy has been to build powerful movements that lead us towards a sustainable future. We have contributed to building the Maker Movement in Southeast Asia, the Repair Movement in Singapore and now the Sustainable Innovation movement in Asia.

Sustainable Innovation

We emphatically believe that is possible for organisations to innovate in an efficient manner and unlock new value by focusing on achieving Sustainability. Through our work in facilitating sustainable innovation efforts with organisations and the community at large, we can help you do more: for your organisation, our environment and our society.
