We're stirring things up.

New site coming June, 2016.


Here's a pinch about what we do.

We partner with mission driven organizations to design and launch new programs from post-it notes to reality.

Ecotone was founded in 2010 and our commitment to positive impact has brought us from Silicon Valley board rooms to Lao village classrooms and back again. We are committed to creating impact through green building, sustainable development, equitable food systems, and arts education.
