Disruption for a better world

We live in a world of 3D printing, voice-activated digital assistants and self-driving cars. And yet, even with all the advantages and opportunities technology has brought with it, our experience continues to be… less than amazing. Burning issues continue to plague our world, from inequity to environmental degradation to resource depletion. We still use the same systems and models our great grandparents used in everything from education to healthcare.

At Affno Ventures, we believe that digital disruption can solve these big issues, providing the connection, knowledge and resources to optimise experience and build a better world.

So we make things. Things that move markets, disrupt industries and change the world.

Seven shapes. Infinite possibilities. Called "the earliest psychological test in the world", the Tangram is a transformation puzzle reputed to have been invented in China during the Song Dynasty. It comprises seven flat shapes, called tans, which can be rearranged to create a virtually endless number of forms.

You never change things by fighting the existing reality. To change something, build a new model that makes the existing model obsolete.

R. Buckminster Fuller
