A warming planet, democracy under siege, disregard for human rights, poverty, inequity, misinformation, pandemics. And that’s just the beginning.

Humanity's challenges can't be solved in isolation.  We need cross-pollination and collaboration at a massive scale—across the silos of organizations, sectors, disciplines and borders.

And time is running out.


Protagonist is a professional network for the mission economy —the people and organizations solving our pressing challenges and pursuing bold, societal goals—in climate, the UN SDGs, health, democracy, civil society, the sciences and more.

Protagonist is where we come together to connect, learn, organize and act.

We have work to do.


We’ll let you know when we are live. To learn more, drop us a line.

Individually we are one drop. Together we are an ocean.
