Be Fearless

The Case Foundation published a fantastic whitepaper on tackling today’s biggest social challenges through social entrepreneurship called Be Fearless.

When we look at the state of the world today, we see a mixed picture. Rapid innovation in an increasingly connected society is transforming the way we work, play, and live.

But we also see global economic woes, civic unrest, and political stalemates. As a result, social issues that challenge communities are becoming more urgent and interconnected.

Meanwhile, those of us charged with finding or funding solutions to chronic social challenges—philanthropy, government, nonprofits—seem to be moving too slowly and are often operating with the same set of tools, concepts, and cautions of the generations before us.

If we’re going to keep up with the rapid pace of change and the daunting volume and complexities of these challenges, we must rethink traditional models. The old way of doing things is simply no longer effective in this new world.

It’s time for us to be bold, act with urgency, and resist the tendency to let caution be our guide.

It’s time for us to Be Fearless.
