Stylus

We launched Stylus Changemakers in 2020 with one simple aim: to celebrate and support the next generation of creators and innovators who are making a difference.

Since then, we’ve enjoyed being part of two more years of Changemaker success stories, and this year we’re doing it all again.

What is Stylus Changemakers?

Stylus Changemakers recognises and champions individuals and organisations using innovative thinking to drive positive change and push the boundaries of possibility within their industries. Like last year, we’ve granted our 2023 Changemakers full access to our cross-industry trends and insights, and events, at no cost – so they too can turn their ambitious goals into a reality.

What makes a Stylus Changemaker?

A Changemaker is an individual or company – selected from a multitude of industries, causes and initiatives – who are on a mission to make a positive change and help create a better future. That mission must also align with one or more of our six core platforms of research: Sustainable Futures, Inclusivity Outlook, Digital Worlds, Luxury Perspectives, Wraparound Wellness and Convenience Culture.

“We launched our Changemakers initiative in 2020 with one aim: to celebrate and support the next generation of creators and innovators who are making a difference. I know that everyone at Stylus is keenly anticipating the launch of our 2023 programme, following the success of previous years. It’s an honour to be able to support these young start-ups with access to our expert insights. I can’t wait to see what they achieve.”

“The strength of the research and support from Stylus helped us to not just create products, but create legislation. There is now a law requiring that every department store in the city of California has a gender-neutral toy section. I attribute a lot of my success to the presentations I was able to create with Stylus’ help. It was the hook that brought people in.”
