2.Collaborate Deliberately. It takes a village right? Together we can achieve things that we could never have done by ourselves. Not to mention it's a lot less lonely.
3.Nurture Nature. Nature got it right. We know it. That's why we aspire to design products from plants not petroleum, from fields not factories.
4.Innovate Disruptively. If you always do what you have done you will always get what you always got. We think innovation and creativity can change the world.
