Our purpose as a company is to design knowledge that is needed to initiate and grow social innovations. Our profits are used to foster and inspire social innovation, particularly through art and design.
Each year we choose a project or projects to undertake (either within knode or with an external partner) and we use the profits generated through knode to complete this project. The project will be announced in August each year. These projects are profiled and outlined in the innovation hothouse section.
Our company objectives are:
> to inspire knowledge and creativity through design and research.
> to research and design practical and sustainable social innovations.
> to operate as an ethical and sustainable social business through the way we work and use our profits.
> to utilise the profits of the company to inspire further social innovation, particularly through art and design.
