In line with Forward Impact's goal to empower the next generation, Think House is a brand new initiative that will provide an experiential environment for highly motivated entrepreneurs to live, learn, create, and connect.
The goal? To have 50 Think Houses in 50 cities in 5 years. The Think House initiative can be broken down to three distinct parts:
1. Live. The concept of “Live” is the tangible element of the Think House initiative and is to provide housing for accepted entrepreneurs. This will facilitate idea cultivation and incubation with like-minded individuals, therefore bettering individual projects. This philosophy also extends to network creation in both professional and personal realms.
2. Learn. The concept of “Learn” is to foster educated entrepreneurial ideas and their subsequent activities through intellectual capital access. The intellectual capital regards a comprehensive international sphere of academic resources and acquaintances with a network of academics, professionals, entrepreneurs and the Think House alumni.
3. Innovate. The concept of “Innovate” amalgamates the preceding concepts: Live and Learn. Idea cultivation in a stimulating environment and idea substantiation via access to intellectual capital will help create a successful venture.
Think House properties will feature interactive decor specifically designed to facilitate collective learning, inspiration and socially positive innovation. The properties will be situated within an appropriate vicinity to partnered academic institutions and urban innovation centers for better integration into the community.
