Designing the future!


Det svenske Tilväkstvärket (Sveriges svar på Innovasjon Norge) har invitert meg til å delta på SOCAPs konferanse “Designing the future” 8.-10. mai. I den forbindelse har de utfordret meg til å skrive noen ord på engelsk om hvordan Panterne er med på å designe fremtiden. Her er mitt svar.
We want to show the world around us that a drug addict isn't just a drug addict, that they are people just like you and me, with education, experiences, dreams and hopes!
We want to kill prejudice against this particular group and give former drug addicts an opportunity to join work life, but our vision stretches even further.
When I first pitched my idea, my socialist friend asked me: "Why should a business help people, that is a task for the welfare-state". I asked him back: Why not?
I want to prove that it is possible to create your own work place with a vision stretching beyond just making a living. It is possible to strive for more than money. It is possible to make a living from making impact.
Our service design is just a simple example of how business in the future can be different.
