What do you hope to accomplish at the end of each day, week, month, and year after year? What you are doing, will it make a positive impact on others’ lives? Regardless of the goals and focus that you have today, will your legacy, your company’s legacy, involve having done something amazing that has touched the lives of hundreds, thousands, or more?

This film is the story about a group of doers, the elegantly simple inventions they have made to change the lives of billions of people, and the unconventional billionaire spearheading the project.

Stage 2 Innovations (The Invention Shop)
The areas where they are focused on are water, power, and health
…as noted by Ravi Sajwan, Chief Technical Officer of Renew, their goal is simple – deliver innovations that can directly impact humanity; and the way to do that is to go and fund it.
…invent stuff that can be used long term
…they have put an infrastructure in place so that great inventions can help the poor in half of the world make their lives better; that’s what they define as a great invention.
