Our Approach

We believe the world’s most complex problems — like violent extremism, environmental degradation, food insecurity, and social inequality — are examples of fragile or crisis systems. This can fuel market instability, poverty, and even war — causing devastating consequences for businesses, governments, and citizens alike. Bigger than any one actor or institution, systemic problems go far beyond the purview of any one stakeholder or sector, which is why Motive engages across sector lines.
