New Thinking Requires Extreme Risk
In 2004 Mitchell Sipus was hitchhiking through central India when he collapsed on the street. Sick with malaria and with only twenty dollars in his pocket, he relied upon the kindness of a local family to take him in. After returning to his home in America a couple months later, he was no longer content to watch the world wrestle with poverty, disease, and war. Over the next decade, Mitchell immersed himself into the center of the world's most difficult problems, spanning from the challenges of refugee camps and youth militarization to international conflict. These experiences provided unique insights into the ability to rapidly understand and transform cities, social systems, and organizations. The result is Symkala.
