Next 10 is focused on innovation and the intersection between the economy, the environment, and quality of life issues for all Californians. We create tools and provide information that fosters a deeper understanding of the critical issues affecting all Californians. Through education and civic engagement, we hope Californians will become empowered to affect change.
We call ourselves Next 10 because we are not here for the quick fix. Our sights are set on joining with others to improve the state over the next ten years, and the ten years after that. The decisions we make together will affect California’s economy, environment and quality of life for years to come. Together, we can create the brighter future we all want for ourselves and our children.
Next 10 was founded and is funded by venture capitalist and philanthropist F. Noel Perry.
In order to accomplish its public policy mission, Next 10 limits its payments of indirect costs for outside research to 5 percent of direct costs.
