x-Pollinate

x-Pollinate (cross-pollinate) is the ethos by which we conceive and implement creative solutions for unique opportunities.

Our small group shares a deep curiosity for knowledge across the spectrum of science, art, media, technology, policy, people and cultures. We are motivated by our concern for the human condition and environment while being inspired by the power of innovation and global connectivity for positive progress.

We choose to work with people we respect on things that matter.

We cross pollinate the best founders and funders from worldwide networks who share in this world view and then collaborate to create solutions.
