April 21, 2009 - The Aspen Institute Business and Society program announced today the inaugural class of First Mover Fellows. The 16 Fellows, who come from a wide variety of backgrounds and businesses, have been chosen for their desire and ability to implement breakthrough strategies that create profitable business growth and, at the same time, contribute to a sustainable society. "The Fellowship will serve as an innovation lab," says Nancy McGaw, director of the First Movers Fellowship Program, "Participants will come with a compelling hypothesis about a new idea they urgently want to implement that will move their companies further into the zone where business growth and our collective well-being intersect. During the program, Fellows will work to convert their hypotheses into new products, services, processes and business models. And they will build capacity to lead change within their organizations."
