Episode Description:

This episode features interviews with the leaders of two Silicon Valley grassroots organizations that are seeking new approaches to solving the world’s most pressing problems. Sam Hahn is co-founder of Program for the Future, which is largely based on the ideas of the late Silicon Valley pioneer Douglas Engelbart. Their mission is to find new ways to leverage our collective intelligence and improve our ability to collaborate with one another in order to solve big problems more effectively. Mei Lin Fung is co-founder of Franchise for Humanity, which is based on the idea that social innovation is the key to solving most of the world’s problems, and which tries to enlist people from many different societies to build innovation ecosystems in their own countries that can facilitate innovative technological growth. The program also features interviews with several speakers from a recent Franchise for Humanity conference at Stanford University, including NASA scientist Jonathan Trent, creator of the OMEGA Project which seeks to turn algae into clean, renewable, inexpensive fuel, Sandra Bates, international speaker and author of the book “The Social Innovation Imperative,” and Kimberly Wiefling, global business leadership consultant and creator of “The Possibilities Toolbox.” Martin Wasserman hosts.
