We started IBEA because we wanted to see change in our communities and around the world. We strongly believed each of us had the power to impact the world positively. We held a stone cold vision and belief to innovate with a global purpose. We believed as individuals we were limited, but if we came together collectively our strength and impact would amplify. We believed that diversity was the engine of massive innovation, and together we could generate more creativity that we could possibly imagine. Over the next few months, we’ll be doubling IBEA and would like you to be part of our journey as we continue fighting for our vision of innovating for everyone in our world.
One of the main things we learned during the experimental phase of IBEA was that in order to “Innovate with a Global Purpose”; we had to have the appropriate skills, resources, and leadership to make this a reality. Unfortunately, early on we didn’t have many SKILLS, we lacked RESOURCES, and our LEADERSHIP wasn’t fully developed. The only thing that we had going was PASSION; and that is the sole reason why we’re still here. In the following months we’ll be building upon our PASSION by introducing new courses/ trainings to sharpen our SKILLS as students and young professionals. This will be the first step toward our vision; “Innovation with a Global Purpose”.
