Founder

After nearly two decades in organizational learning and development, founder Damon Kornhauser decided to put himself out of business. Rather than working to fix existing business challenges, he directed his energy to the root cause of those challenges; improving the way creative, civic, and entrepreneurial education happens, so that better organizations themselves might thrive.

The answer, he realized, was to create a space that protected and expanded the innate creative audacity of youth, rather than stifling it. NextUs is the result of that commitment.

Throughout his career, he learned not only how to create engaging, hands-on learning experiences, he identified how existing organizations continually recreate their own problems by failing to understand the systems that created them, the people affected, and the root causes that perpetuate them.
