Well, I could do the obvious & tell you all about our achievements since starting at zero with a dream 3 years ago in early May 2020.
Instead, I'm preferring to share with you who we are & where we’re going.
How our mission has been our constant through-line since Day 1.
The wording changes slightly as we grow. Originally it was ‘Challenging Society's Attitude to Undesirable Dogs & Disadvantaged People Enabling Them to Have a Right to Belong in Society’.
Illustrating THE problem that we’re disrupting.
Historically the problem of a broken system &/or a broken society have been treated as separate problems. Both of which have been attempted to be resolved by broken thinking. We don’t have 3 problems we have one huge societal, aka ‘wicked’, problem that requires a collaborative network approach. One that cannot be resolved in one hit with the one solution fits all approach.
For the last 200 years the problem has been attempted to have been solved by the non-profit charity model.
We now have the opportunity in the 21st century for innovators & disruptors to create new thinking from an entrepreneurial mindset.
