Nest uses on-the-ground experience and impact data, brand insights, and current academic research as means to establish an ongoing big picture view of the large-scale issues that are plaguing the artisan sector on the global scale. These challenges like wastewater management during textile dyeing, living wage models applicable in the piece rate payment setting, and technology integration for rural or highly decentralized groups, must be solved for the sector as whole in order for the industry to advance.
Once sector challenges are identified, Nest connects key industry leaders, who work alongside Nest to build solutions at scale. Consulting partners include the academic community, globally diverse corporations, leading economists, architects, social innovators, and a multiplicity of relevant experts and stakeholders.
