THE TEAM

Nope, not a fancy ‘Meet the team page’ with moving portraits or an introduction video (we wish). But do we need it? Nah! Because….

This growing team of awesome people will unlock new chapters on Future Based. They zoom in on the complicated, and make the common extraordinary through podcasts, meetups, reading groups and exhibitions.
