Fast Forward 2030

New business models for innovation

In 2015, the United Nations launched the Sustainable Development Goals for the next 15 years. Achieving these towering ambitions will require the active involvement of everyone on the planet.

Whilst governments, large organisations and big business inevitably have key roles to play in this, we believe that the mantle will fall to small, fast moving, innovative organisations that are springing up all over the world to make the most critical contribution.

Launched by Professor Henrietta L. Moore, Founder and Director of the Institute for Global Prosperity, and Arthur Kay, Chief Executive of bio-bean, Fast Forward 2O3O promotes speculative models for enterprise and behaviours that will help deliver the Sustainable Development Goals.

Comprising a handful of young London-based innovators, Fast Forward 2O3O reaches out to the next generation of leaders who by 2030 will be the shapers of institutions, directors of businesses, producers of knowledge and inventors of technology.

Through our online platform and a curated programme of events, Fast Forward 2O3O will debate and promote positive proposals and provocative ideas for how a swarm of small actions can effect global change.
