Looking Up Feeling Good Partners with Steel Chicks

If you followed my numerous posts over the years you know I like jumping in early on new products or services – not all have been successful, especially on Kickstarter and Indiegogo, but you roll the dice sometimes and see what happens.

Over the years Looking Up Feeling Good was an early community investor in Hepburn Wind for Australia’s first community wind farm. That has been a great investment to be part of, building capacity for sustainable energy and showing others how to go about doing so successfully.

Last year we jumped in with community funding for X-Hemp Australia, bringing scale to Hemp construction, the ideal, low cost and sustainable building material that frankly (flagging my bias) should be being used in about 90% of all homes in Australia given our climate, especially heat and fire.

And now we’ve jumped on an opportunity to be the first sponsor of Steel Chicks, an entity that will help more women build, sustain, and enter into the world of steel manufacturing, in all it’s forms.  It is perhaps one of the big opportunity spaces and Looking Up Feeling Good are delighted to be a part of it

Innovation & Counter Intuitiveness

Jan 23, 2007

The idea behind Innovation is to create something new, that has yet to be conceived. A lot of the times that requires Counterintuitive thinking and that can be a very difficult challenge because it needs to break the habits in our thinking styles. For me the essence of being a futurist is the essence of…
