We are at the beginning phases of establishing this Foundation and hope to begin to explore projects in 2024. Please come back to this space to keep up with our progress as well as to explore open source research we conduct.
Our work is just getting started. Over the next year we will be raising funds, building networks, and identifying pressing issues.
We plan to focus initially on supporting existing research and development projects to help accelerate efforts and findings.
As we mature, our vision is to launch RFPs on target issues and areas, and/or accept proposals for projects from labs, schools, and businesses.
We are currently fundraising among companies, individuals, and other foundations who are passionate about innovation in the footwear industry. Please contact us to learn how you can join the movement.
