Innovation is created by and for people.

You’re our people.

NextUs delivers the tools used by the world’s most creative, inspiring, and impactful organizations with the leadership mindset that builds them. 

Every NextUs program is made up of modules. Each module provides tools, perspectives, and resources integral in creating change.

“To change the world, you must first change yourself.”

~ The Ghand’ster

Modules become projects. Projects become impacts. With each step you’re showing the world what you are capable of and creating extraordinary change by doing it.



Whether you want to create a cutting-edge product or a paradigm shifting social program, we’ve built the process propelling both from inspiration to impact.

The Global Impact Accelerator puts you in the Founder seat, drawing from top social innovation, product design, innovation programs.

Join a live 3-week cohort, or self-steer at your own pace.


From launching a product to launching a movement, we’ll guide you every step of the way.  Work 1:1 with one of our mentors to build a custom program, guiding you step-by-step from idea to impact. 

Your mentor will get to know you through 1:1 sessions, guiding, supporting, and drawing from our extended network of knowledge experts, resources, and opportunities. 

We’ve been there, done that, and are ready to show you how!




Innovation challenges bring together youth from around the world to work a single social, civic, or business challenge. Working both individually and in teams, participants create real solutions to real problems for real organizations.
