Democracy Disruptor, Systems Rebel
Indy Johar has a firework of ideas. He envisions a society with conditions for radical hope built in – a system with inherent audacity. He can talk like that, because he walks like that. He’s co-founded a number of socially-led businesses, and he places emphasises on the “co” in front of all his roles. That is one of the things that makes Indy stand out as a serial and social entrepreneur.
Indy dives deep into the detail and jumps up over the blue sky – where he thinks broad and wild with an amazing insight into the mechanics of the world.
Here are just a few of his visions, that he himself is tackling:
_ Indy thinks that the key to tackling society's problems lies in radically re-thinking the way our institutions and infrastructures re-organise their systems, from the inside out. Beyond small start-up culture, true impact and societal value will come when ‘corporate’ bodies in the broadest sense are able to catalyse changes.
_ He thinks democracy is not about ‘the vote’, but the democratic power to create our cities. How do we unleash the many to create, re-imagine and remake our cities?
_ Innovation needs a boring revolution
