What kind of leader do we need to realize “Global Happiness”? With such a big question, Leave a Nest launched Leave a Nest University in December 2020. We have generated so many projects by bridging various stakeholders. That is why we called ourselves “Science Bridge Communicators”. The essence of our ways, “Knowledge Manufacturing Process”, are now open to the public as a form of Human Resource Development Program. Global Bridge Leader is the person who can explore our world with such a body of knowledge to make a better world.
Students, business persons, startups, conglomerates… Regardless of the current affiliation, industry, or scale, everyone needs to be a learner, researcher who aims to solve issues scattered in the world. We are really looking forward to meeting highly ambitious/motivated persons who can contribute to our world together through our program.
