The Center’s mission represents an unprecedented opportunity for a new breed of investors who are not afraid to take risks in pursuit of game-changing innovation in the early childhood space. These investors understand that the risk of failure pales in comparison to the risk of not being bold enough to do whatever it takes to achieve breakthrough impacts.
