& Wander


We wonder and wander to find our next evolution and curate inspiration experiences to unleash your inner genius.

Over 25,000 humans have experienced a little wonder and wander through Wired for Wonder, Nurture Her, Nurture Change, Unleashed, Fernatics, The Wonder Tribe and Island in a Box. We have run the experiments and made all the mistakes. Now we bring you experiences we passionately and consciously curate to upgrade your human and unleash your inner genius.

The Wonder and Wander Foundation was established to shrink the world. To open hearts and minds and help bridge gaps in education, privilege, diversity and cycles of inequality.

We exist to connect under represented and under privlidged with opportunities to change us all.

Our foundation

The Wonder and Wander Foundation was established to shrink the world. To open hearts and minds and help bridge gaps in education, privilege, diversity and cycles of inequality.

We exist to connect under-represented and underprivileged with opportunities to change us all.

We are born curious and creative and willing to try, play and take risks – but over time we are programmed to conform, do things a certain way and the inner wonder and wander of children decreases over time (and has been found to be almost non-existent as kids become teenagers and then adults).

We are the bridge and connection of the wisdom, energy and success of our alumni, partners and contributors and the future leaders of our world. 

We create incubation challenges, Wonder and Wander Inspiration / creativity pop ups, design thinking challenges and curriculum to inspire the Wonder and Wander spirit in our youth and future leaders. We inspire the soft skills and imagination skills that are often neglected in formal curriculum due to funding and focus.

We will design the first W&W Foundation Program at the Evolve Leadership Summit which will also be executed and supported by our founding alumni, partners and contributors.
