Our culture

We seek people who share our values and who have a deep desire to develop fundamental new insights and tools for building the firms and industries of the future.

We are not just researchers; we are doers. We advise investors, corporate leaders, founders, and policymakers. We learn from the field, improving practice with better theory, and building better theory through innovative practice.

Ours is a fast-paced and hands-on culture. We don’t delegate, wait, and hope. We care less about titles than we care about trust, collaboration, and results.

Continuous self-improvement is taken as a given, as is sharing knowledge and insight with others. Being multi-lingual and having experience with multiple national/work cultures is a must. We take a broad multi-disciplinary perspective and we celebrate cognitive diversity; we don’t care where you are from, but we do care about what you can teach us, about pretty much anything.

Innovation and strategy advisors

We are seeking experienced innovation and strategy advisors who can work with investor and corporate clients in London, Silicon Valley, and other locations. Ideal candidates have a hybrid background comprising technology, business strategy, governance, leadership, and organizational change. You should be comfortable working with board members, CEOs, investors, and policymakers. You should also have a track record of helping create real change, and of effectively communicating ideas.

We have office space in Silicon Valley and London as needed, but much of this work is likely to be hybrid and/or remote. Engagements will be on a contract/project basis.


We are seeking representatives who can connect investors, corporate leaders, and policymakers with the Institute. This is our version of “business development”, but it is much more about developing and maintaining relationships than it is about “selling”. Ambassadors may focus on a particular industry or geographical area, and compensation will be commensurate with outcomes.

Online content production

The Institute is building a small team of volunteers who can help with content production, including website maintenance and video editing. Volunteer positions may be converted into contract positions based on results. Candidates should be familiar with mainstream tools and platforms such as WordPress, Vimeo, Mighty Networks,  Aweber, iMovie, and the Adobe Suite Unless you are located in Silicon Valley or London, this work will be remote.
