The World Needs Solutions

Ask anyone, anywhere and each will tell you about the burning need to solve real-world problems that are important to them. Some are personal, some are global, but all require more than time and hope to be addressed.

Inspired by the United Nations 17 Sustainable Development Goals, The Breakout Project is a growing effort to build the capacity to solve the greatest challenges we face as a global society. We work to find the best ideas, to connect the right people around those ideas and to turn ideas into action by attracting and supporting teams who can build out solutions.

To solve big problems, we look to the those who have become most adept at building big things quickly — the innovators amongst us who have created the disruptive projects that change the way we all live. The most successful innovators build their organizations by collecting massive amounts of four key ingredients: connections, money, talent and awareness. The Breakout Project is about bringing these ingredients to bear as quickly as possible for teams of solution builders.

In May 2017, we launched our first annual live-streamed event. You’ll learn more about it below and throughout this website. In the fall, we exhibited at the EDIT: Expo for Design, Innovation and Technology, Innovation and Technology in Toronto which we will launched our interactive idea collaboration platform to help foster the relationships necessary to align masses of people are common goals.

And we are building toward a future that will see more Breakout Project events, more partnerships, more projects and more hope in 2018 and beyond.

Please join us. Follow, share, volunteer. We are guided by six core values:

  1. Think EPIC!
  2. Bring Joy
  3. We Are One
  4. Preach It
  5. Whatever It Takes
  6. Pay It Forward

Our is hope that anyone who shares these ideals will join our movement and help us get the biggest jobs done.
