Strategy 1.0

It’s been a little over seven months since I joined Raspberry Pi Foundation as chief executive.  Much of that time I’ve spent with the team, trustees, partners, and the wider community, thinking about how we can best contribute to the movement of digital makers that is growing around the world.  How do we articulate our mission? How can we use our expertise and resources?  What do we stand for?

Hundreds of people contributed their ideas and many more provided inspiration through their actions.  One of most remarkable things about Raspberry Pi is the amazing community that has grown around us and from which we take our lead.

In December the Board signed off a new strategy for the Foundation.  It’s a work in progress and I like to think of it as our strategy 1.0.  There’s no doubt we’ll need to adapt and evolve it as we learn more, and some big questions haven’t yet been answered. But, it feels like a significant step forward in ambition, clarity, and openness.  It’s certainly exciting to be working with the team to figure out how we put it into practice.
