Our Advisory Board helps us to enforce our mission to build a more beautiful world for all living things. As a critical mirror and lighthouse, the advisory board members constantly challenge and question us. So that we stay on track while remaining humble and sensitive.
With our Advisory Board, we get external, global, perspectives and insights. Insights on how we can improve on people, the planet, prosperity. And how design can continuously help to systematize it all. A supportive partner and coach at our side – not only for our CEO but also for the management team.
Indeed Innovation’s Advisory Board currently consists of the following three experts, whose innovative advice, and sustainable perspectives we highly appreciate:
