Opportunities for Redemptive Innovation
This list of Opportunities for Redemptive Innovation articulates areas, models, and opportunities for new ventures that may not emerge without intentional pursuit. It is not a comprehensive account of what could be done, nor does it simply restate areas where there are sizable economic opportunity (e.g. ‘artificial intelligence’ or ‘5G’) or well-known and important sectors (‘economic development’ or ‘anti-trafficking’). It is, rather, an imaginative menu for redemptive entrepreneurs throughout the world.
In the words of Bill Gates, “There are some very important problems that don’t get worked on naturally. That is, the market does not drive [people] to do the right things. And only by paying attention to these things, and having brilliant people who care, and draw other people in, can we make as much progress as we need to.” Our goal with this list is to call attention to these things — and draw brilliant people who care into them.
