Stone Soup Initiative

Personalizing Technology Globally

Founded to find cutting-edge technologies relevant to rural peoples and accelerate their accessibility globally, the Jackson Hole Technology Partnership begins the Stone Soup Initiative.

To the young scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs reaching out to us from around our planet, with your insights and offers to help, we are forever grateful. We build together.

Last year, we asked… If a technology could generate contagious cures against global pandemics, what would it look like?

To answer that, we intend to accelerate substantially the speed of technology solutions — by enabling scientists, engineers and entrepreneurs to meet up from anywhere in their personal Virtual Reality research environments that respond as would nature.

This is part of our larger effort to see a connected world solve problems anew.

Create solutions to scientific and engineering problems at speeds never before dreamed possible.

Collaborate commercially, from anywhere on the planet , with digital ease, speed and precision.

Enable a creation of wealth by those whose incomes have been displaced by other technologies.

Enable those sustained by precarious life support to design and build what they see as vital.

Enable the rise of new technologies to help us each reshape our own journey of life.

BETH YOUNG-JONES

Chair, 2019 Global Technology Summit and Director of Operations

Beth was introduced to the Jackson Hole Technology Partnership at the 2016 Summit. The possibility to turn concept into action is what spurred Beth into a formal relationship with JHTP. Beth’s focus is on creating platforms to do great work alongside creative people while solving a meaningful problem. She’s committed to driving global outcomes through the Wyoming Healthcare Initiative, a worthy project of JHTP because she believes no person should be at risk for poor health outcomes based on where they live.
