Who We Are
i4j Innovation for Jobs is a global leadership forum organized by the IIIJ Foundation, a 501(c)3 non-profit organization with headquarters in Silicon Valley.
People need to earn in order to spend, but almost all innovation is to encourage spending. There is very little innovation for earning better, and virtually no innovation for earning a living.
i4j is changing this by developing and testing a framework of ideas for a people-centered economy, where companies compete to raise the value of people as much as for lowering costs. The goal is a sustainable innovation economy where people do meaningful work with people they like, creating value for people they do not know, providing for people they love.

Our purpose is to let innovation disrupt unemployment by creating a People-Centered Economy, PCE for short. Read more.
