Innovation

Innovation is a core part of our culture. We aim to establish an environment in which innovation can systematically be fostered and integrated into everything we do.

Our innovation efforts primarily come to life in three ways: ventures, partnerships, and labs. We prioritize a human-centered approach to each, looking for new ideas that help communities be more resilient and future-fit.

As a purpose-driven organization, innovation plays a crucial part in satisfying the first two words of our promise: “advance life.”

Startup Partnerships

We don’t believe investment is our only path to partnership. The culture and velocity of a startup are completely different than of a big organization. That’s why we’ve built a dedicated team and the required processes to try and overcome those challenges and make more mutually beneficial startup partnerships possible.
