About Seed

Seed helps design and create redemptive solutions for real world problems. We use our distinctive Redemptive Design process to grow initiatives that are grounded in the Christian story and have a positive impact on society and culture.

Seed works with both individuals (entrepreneurs, business owners) and faith-based organisations. We create content and courses that help people engage with Redemptive Design, and also offer supported design processes (Design Labs, Incubators, Coaching) that help more complex or challenging solutions come to life.

Our vision is to see a movement of Christians bearing witness to Jesus at the forefront of renewal and positive change in society. You can find out more about us at www.seed.org.au
