Congratulations on this important initiative. Over the past two years, I have been working with a great team of academics to launch the Social Innovation and Change Initiative (SICI) at Harvard University. Our mission is very aligned with yours. I see all of us as being part of the same movement and I will be glad to help/contribute along the way. Thanks again!
