So how do we move the future from the distant horizon to the present day? We need Intellectual Anarchy.
The accelerating challenges facing our planet—such as climate change, food scarcity, sustainable energy, overpopulation, nuclear proliferation, income inequality, and rising healthcare costs—are solvable. The question is not if, but when.
All these challenges directly impact our lives and our unwritten future. They have enormous economic consequences for humans and society. They also provide incredible opportunities for investors and innovators.
This is a book about how we can find disruptive solutions to hard problems, problems so difficult that they can seem impossible. Problems of that magnitude demand radical new ideas—an incremental approach won’t work. Their solutions seemingly come out of left field, defying conventional wisdom, and overturning existing industries, practices, and business models.
This book details the Intellectual Anarchy™ methodology followed at Oceanit for generating disruptive solutions to these problems and taking them from the idea stage all the way to market—Mind-to-Market, including financing innovations to overcome the scarcity of venture capital anywhere away from the conventional tech hubs.
Oceanit operates from Hawai‘i, the most remote location in the world. Yet today Oceanit works across the world with just about everybody—the US government, Fortune 100 companies, and more than sixty universities—partnering and collaborating as we research, invent, and produce technology in energy, aerospace, life sciences, information technology, sustainability, and resiliency.
If Oceanit’s Intellectual Anarchy model works in Hawai‘i, it can work anywhere.
