On August 1, FutureProof launched a new research and development arm, Brainforest, and incorporated it as a Benefit Corporation, which requires a triple-bottom-line approach to business while it has access to funding opportunities specific to this new type of corporation.  The R & D arm has the mission to create transformative solutions in the areas of urban resiliency, adaptation and regenerative communities through a collaborative, multi-disciplinary systems approach.

” FutureProof and BrainForest are looking forward to collaborating with other Benefit Corporations to foster a progressive economy for the state of Louisiana,” said FutureProof Founder and Managing Partner Prisca Weems. FutureProof/BrainForest exists to advance society by creating and implementing resourceful solutions that empower change at multiple scales, FutureProofing our environment for generations to come.
