As connectors, the IDF has given itself the mission of animating and linking a network of “positive conspirators”, pioneers of the new world who, in their chosen field, explore and experiment solutions for a desirable futures. This community has a shared value : we must overcome generalized anxiety to reinvent our models and rehabilitate a concern for long-term. Weget together without being alike”.


By connecting people and creating a guild of empowered optimists, the IDF believes in the power of sharing, collective intelligence and action. Giving each other support, inspiration and strength, they move forward together, adopting a new vision and pushing back the boundaries … without fear of failure, because the key is to try. And at worst … it works.
