The world is broken
Nadia from edgeryders. I have a soution and problem. The solution is consultancy for innovative business. Problem consultancy is broken. Global unrest, rapid climate change, mass unemployment, outdated governance structures. So we turn to consultants for advice and perspective. But the Mckinseys offer old world solutions to new world problems. You cant solve the problems of the future with solutions of the past. Edgeryders has the network and methodology to consult on questions at edge of context. We are here today because we want to partner with you and access your networks.
Change happens at the edge
People experimenting with alternative responses to new problems exist on the edge. People looking for answers & who have resources live here. The people with resources ask the Mckinseys of the world to help make sense of what’s going on. But they, like the clients they are trying to help live in the centre. The centre asks the wrong questions and tries to solve the wrong problems.This next cartoon illustrates the prevailing wisdom
Risk and emergence
People want innovation but innovation thats already been done. Disruptive innovation is impossible to evaluate even in theory. Evaluators try to measure it in terms of the world they live in (and does not contain the innovation), whereas innovators try to build the world which does contain the innovation. The former are accountable to the present; the latter to the future. Einstein said it’s insane to repeat the same process and expect different results. Some examples of our approach:
Problem: gap in innovation support system for pre-market and radical innovation. Like artist residency but for innovators to take on social problems with local community. From idea to prototype and changes in policy in less than 12 months. Problem would otherwise take 10 years to solve.
Fighting the Mafﬁa
Problem: ﬁghting organised crime. Solution: Maffia-free equivalent of fare trade labelling for businesses that step forward and refuse to pay protection money to the Maffia. Easier for consumers to support them and inspires others to also act against organised crime by showing that if you do it, no one will come after you.
Moneyless economy for the 99%
Problem: liquidity contraints brought on by crises criple local economies. solution algorithm for network bartering.It’s called “Economy App – Moneyless economy for the 99%.”
