Every cloud has a silver lining

Actually, it all started because of COVID-19. On March 12, 2020, Francisco Palao (founder of Purpose Alliance) received a message saying that the keynote about Purpose that he was going to give on March 19 in Asunción (Paraguay) was cancelled.

After this, Francisco, who is not only a speaker but also a doer, thought that he should do something about this global problem and launched the first Global Challenge to help with COVID-19 on March 19, 2020 (instead of the keynote that he was going to give) offering free training on innovation methodologies to anyone who joins and dedicates 3 hours to generating innovative solutions. Andrea Llong and Scally Tye helped Francisco early on with this crazy idea.

The result of this first Global COVID-19 Challenge was a great success. In just one week over 350 people came together to find solutions to this massive problem and over 20 solutions were generated.

Following this, there were many inquiries from purposeful leaders from around the world to run local challenges to help with COVID-19 in their countries.

Thanks to everyone who joined these calls, it inspired us to create Purpose Alliance, to integrate and facilitate everything that is happening thanks to the super community.

We continue to launch many other challenge series, such as the “Future of Work” Purpose Challenge Series, and many more purpose-driven leaders are coming together to continue running challenges at the local level.

In addition, we have also started collaborating with startups and large organizations that want to create a positive impact in the world and are helping us take our impact to the next level.

Last but not least, to make it all happen, we leveraged Purpose Launchpad, the open framework for making a positive impact that was originally developed by Francisco Palao.

Now, we are a global community of makers who care about our present and future, we believe in empowered people and organizations that change the world for the better.
