These visionaries are most effective when they strategically take scalable and sustainable approaches—building and harnessing the power of networks and platforms.

In this presentation, you will learn about how:

  • Networks mobilize collective resources for greater impact than doing things on your own.

  • Platform models enable innovation and efficiency through shared infrastructures.

  • Combining networks and platforms drives transformative local solutions at scale
