from their site:

We are What If…?

A STARTUP THAT DEMOCRATIZES CRITICAL THINKING AND QUESTION-ASKING.

We use active curiosity to push innovation forward a little faster. We start by asking better questions, so that we can create better solutions. We connect diverse groups through our platfor(u)ms to get people talking to “the other”.

Is this TED?

NOPE.

We’re structurally different than TED. Read about it on Medium.

when imagining political movements that can make a difference, activists need to think several dominoes beyond the immediate goals. ….

A vision of history that refuses to see the present as inevitable can steer us away from helpless acceptance of the status quo.
