Start Some Good
 
The inability of the traditional social funding sector to support innovation – i.e. things not yet proven to work – is an acute problem in a world where the pace of change is constantly accelerating. We need new solutions to old problems, and new ideas to take advantage of new opportunities. Most funders, whether government, foundations or corporates, want to fund things they know will work, with strong metrics and evidence. There's a real aversion to risk and sense of shame whenever things don't work. We really need to shift that culture and learn from what we've seen in the technology industry – you need to make a lot of bets, and accept a lot of failure, to find the truly transformative ideas. ˧
