Charting a bold path into the future.

Through storytelling and narration, our goal is to debunk the myth that innovation is an inexplicable, mystical force reserved for the few, rather than many. We work to institutionalize what we know about innovation at ASU and drive an innovation mindset deeper into the culture and memory of the university.
