Managing director

Andrew Outhwaite

Andrew has fifteen years of professional experience contributing to the development and growth of social innovations.

Ventures he has co-founded or lead have addressed homelessness (e.g. Spark Challenge), science and sustainability (e.g. Hallbarhet, The Natural Step Australia, Goodness Festival), healthy regional communities (e.g. Pollinators Inc, Meshpoints), cultural transformation (e.g. Coaching for Sustainability) and innovation (e.g. StartupWA, State Innovation Strategy).

The success of those ventures has been evident through: their widespread adoption and replication, through peer or government recognition such as awards (e.g. Regional Innovation Leadership), scholarships (e.g. US International Visitors Leadership Program) and through invitations to present at national conferences (e.g. Social Traders, SEGRA, CEDA).

Andrew currently contributes to international, intentional communities of practice (e.g. For Blue, Cheng Hsin, and Apithology) is investing in an innovative new housing model (Baugruppen) and otherwise enjoys solving hard rock climbing 'problems', and being in or on the ocean. 

A brief future history

We were established in 2007 in London, UK, have operated in WA since 2009, and in 2020 are expanding to serve the Indian Ocean.
Our (audacious) goals are, by 2030:

> to see our approach used: across industries (e.g. Blue Economy), internationally (e.g. Indian Ocean), and beneficially (e.g. measurably affecting Sustainable Development Goals) by 2030,

> to create $100 million of value for clients and beneficiaries,

> transform WA so that by role and reputation we collaborate in developing beneficial innovations with and for neighbouring nations

A narrative future history of our intended contribution is:

A young university student in Madagascar considers developing a useful innovation as an entrepreneur, rather than seeking employment. Knowing this would be a significant: commitment, opportunity and responsibility she asks about a way to approach this with ease and rigour.

Hearing the question asked well, her tutor is compelled to assist and introduces her to a mentor who’s able to guide her. The mentor then also introduces her to peers with similar aspirations and facilitates their individual, collective and professional development.

In the conjunction of their intentions and the availability of a validated and accessible methodology, they and their innovations flourish. With delight and curiosity they commence on a transformational journey, navigate a series of challenging transitions, and naturally, easily, confidently all succeed with their ventures.

Their experience, journey and results seem quite normal and unremarkable: that they could develop innovations so effortlessly, when something is needed it appears already available, and that what they humbly enact is experienced by those benefitting as unimaginable generosity.

Seeing themselves as grateful beneficiaries of this methodology, the value they generate is re-invested wisely, enabling others to pursue even more incredible aspirations, so paying itself forward endlessly, ensuring the future is always better than in history.
