A³ by Airbus Group, is an innovation and design center working on the future of flight. One of their projects, Transpose, aims to reshape the aircraft cabin and passenger experience with a modular architecture system. The concept allows for pods to be easily swapped in and out, so one plane could have beds for a red-eye flight, while another could have a restaurant, a co-working space, and even a gym.
Felt across the nonprofit sector, the power-imbalance between foundations and their grantees fundamentally challenges their relationships and effectiveness. It’s largely centered upon and affected by money, but the Packard Foundation aims to change that dynamic. We researched the ecosystem and conducted numerous interviews with grantees, program officers, board members, and venture capitalists. Our insights in addition to those of our peer teams, helped The Packard Foundation deepen and broaden their understanding of their funder-grantee dynamic.
