POSITIVE IMPACT: The Purpose Launchpad mindset and framework to improve your startup, your organization and the world.

Today we have in our hands the ability to evolve our environment and to make positive changes in the world. We have access to technologies that a few years ago would have been considered science fiction: the internet, drones, artificial intelligence and 3D printers, among many others.

In parallel, we are witnessing a global awakening. Society is understanding that we can not only do something, but that we must do something to change things. This awakening is generating a new movement of doers, entrepreneurs and organizations that direct their activities to improve the world.

All of them, aware of their power, are getting down to work to create solutions to the problems that most concern society, without waiting for the solution to come from governments or large institutions.

The great challenges of humanity are, at the same time, the greatest business opportunities. However, what differentiates people and organizations that succeed in their projects is not mere access to technology or knowledge. The differential key to success is the mentality, that is, the way of seeing the world, the way of facing challenges and the way in which we solve them.

This book deals precisely with this point: what is the mentality that we need to adopt to improve the world and our business projects, whether they are startups or large organizations. To do this, it presents real stories, as well as a new and increasingly recognized framework called Purpose Launchpad that facilitates the implementation of the right mindset and tools to improve the world and our own projects.

Because, today more than ever, any person or organization can create a positive impact.
