  • Imagination is a very powerful tool. We are very capable of building an incredibly beautiful future for ourselves but we need to do the hard work! We need to ask these hard questions and we need to do what’s right

    Anousheh Ansari
    CEO, XPRIZE Foundation

  • What design does best, is accelerate the adaption of new ideas.

    Yves Béhar
    CEO, fuseprojects

  • Das lineare Denken scheint mir eine der grössten Gefahren zu sein in der Entwicklung…Dass man das, was man bis jetzt gemacht hat ein bisschen cleverer tut, aber es eigentlich nicht ändert.

    Philipp Blom
    Schriftsteller, Historiker & Journalist
