IMPROVING LIVES AND THE PLACES WE LIVE

As an action-oriented think tank, Sagamore Institute works both upstream and downstream. We work upstream to transform laws and policies and downstream to improve lives and the places we live—i.e., social impact. Featured below are examples of downstream innovation that are bringing commercial excellence to solve some of the world’s biggest problems. Each are scalable and sustainable initiatives that are transforming the way we approach complex societal issues.
