INSIGHT: Taking Your Shot?

Peter Nicholson

Part II: Going Long
Innovation requires intention and investment. The best investors seek out ripe potential, not already existing value, and place their funds there. Astute entrepreneurs have a track record of identifying and developing those opportunities. We need more of both, and for them to seek more than financial returns through projects that will pay environmental and social dividends as well. I don’t love fundraising, but I adamantly believe forging young leaders is an essential change strategy. The majority of Foresight’s summer program participants wouldn’t have been able to attend without scholarships that were supported by people they’ve never met. That said, I’m concerned that our urgency to address immediate concerns will overshadow building future capacity, and eventually inaugurate a longer crisis. You don’t have to be a millionaire to make an impact. Whether you have $100 or $1000 or more to plant and grow, the evidence that we’re seeing from Foresight’s diversity and leadership initiative is that promising signs of spring have started to emerge. Need a sign of hope—let these stories inspire you, and then help create more like them.
