Global Search Begins

Today we embark on a global search to identify the next generation of transformative commercial products or services.

We will use the power of experimentation to create, test, and validate new products and services at a pace paralleled by the startup industry — and we’re thrilled to begin taking pre-orders this month!

This global challenge has already begun in Kathmandu and will continue to move west over the next several days. To submit your idea for a new product or service, click here.

However, we have already developed IP in the following segments: niche real estate, co-working, retail/ecommerce, technical recruiting, boutique adventure racing, and voluntourism.

I am returning to the United States. You can expect to receive regular correspondence from me beginning May 10.
