Our goal is to enable meaningful jobs for one million neurodivergent persons around the world by 2030 in line with the Sustainable Development Goals.

  • Showcasing the talents of neurodivergent persons and encouraging companies to utilize their skills.

2. Research & Development

3. Replicate, facilitate and catalyse employment models
