We were created by a network of leaders leveraging design to catalyze systems change.
Leap spans from the multidisciplinary work developed in India by the Design Laboratory at Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health (D-Lab) and the Transform Rural India Foundation. Under a seed investment provided by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, leaders from these organizations and their networks explored if advanced design models could enhance the effectiveness of various government agencies, private companies, academic institutions, and civic organizations.
This work surfaced promising opportunities and a growing appetite to bring the D-Lab’s approach to fill a capability gap. Leap was created as a catalyst organization to build design capabilities, unleash creativity, and demonstrate new ways of living, learning, working, and playing that promote the well-being of people and the planet.
We are a small team with big ambitions. We have different minds. We come from different walks of life. We speak different languages. We bring different skills. Our hearts are aligned: we are here to catalyze the well-being of people and the planet.
