A SHARED JOURNEY
A NEW MILESTONE
Milestone Labs was born of a simple idea and a shared frustration. We saw so much time and energy invested in incredible social innovation events, but were always left with the same question:

By focusing on defined, researched and validated social challenges and combining our experiences leading multidisciplinary collaborations, we aim to bring together those who live with challenges and those with the skills and resources to help design solutions.
