CEO & Co-founder, OI EngineOI Engline
Nathan is the CEO & Co-founder of the collaborative innovation platform OI Engine, an award winning software platform that was born from IDEO’s Design Thinking approach to innovation. OI Engine enables organisations to engage their communities or employees to solve problems, and create tangible solutions – collaboratively. Most recently, the platform has been used to help a US bank, Umpqua, to engage its employee base and make their recent merger more human-centered and successful. It has been used for co-creating new business ideas which have helped companies tackle market disruption in the recruitment sector, and has affected tens of thousands of lives by addressing global issues in areas as diverse as sanitation, serious disease prevention, e-waste, urban resilience, and women’s safety. Before OI Engine, Nathan co-founded and co-ran OpenIDEO.com, a public instance of the software where a global community of 100,000 helps create social impact through working with corporate and NGO sponsors. He also worked as a consultant for IDEO, overseeing the Organisational Design team in Europe, and ran his own company in London. He’s passionate about his kids and is a health and food geek.
