While we are thrilled to bring you the first-ever Purpose Challenge in the USA our excitement is tempered with the current situation. The US, like many other countries around the world, is trying to come to grips with multiple concurring issues affecting everyone: a worldwide pandemic, massive unemployment, crashing economies, uncertainty, grief, anger, hopelessness, and civil unrest. These and many other issues continue to distance us from our family and friends, threaten our economic well-being and divide the citizenry. That said, there simultaneously exists hope and faith that something is different this time that gives us the strength to forge ahead.
It is in this spirit of cooperation and perseverance that drives Purpose Challenges throughout the world: teams coming together to solve the world's most pressing problems. Now more than ever we need to work with one another to bring peace, hope, healing, unity, and solutions to these deep systemic issues. Together we can create the Future of Unity to bring much-needed hope and healing to an embattled nation and world.
HOW WILL WE DO IT?
On July 18th, we will carry out a Purpose Challenge with the aim of creating the future of Unity, for this we will define exponential initiatives using state-of-the-art innovation methodologies.
Inspired by the way Exponential Organizations (ExO), such as Google, Airbnb or Netflix, manage their organizations to scale exponentially, we will use ExO Methodologies to define purpose-oriented initiatives that are highly scalable and can positively impact the world.
Furthermore, we will harness the power of Exponential Technologies, such as Artificial Intelligence, Blockchain, Big Data, Internet of Things or 3D Printing, to use humanity's latest progress for our own benefit.
After the Purpose Challenge, the resulting initiatives will be in an idea stage, but can be further developed and launched with the support of our partners. Actually, the idea is not just thinking but also doing, and having a real impact!
Until July 9
You can be part of the next Challenge to Create the Future of Unity and have a positive impact on the world! We look forward to the participation of entrepreneurs, innovators, disruptive thinkers, and anyone who wants to contribute ideas to create the future of Unity.
