Enable Leaders. Drive Change.

What is our mission?

MDLF Mission: Enable Leaders. Drive Change.

Build a network of innovators and leaders who refuse to accept the status quo as good enough, constantly aim higher, and execute courageously.

MDLF Philosophy

Mitch Daniels has always combined ideas with action, out-of-the-box thinking with pragmatic implementation. He has demonstrated this combination across many realms – government, business, and education.

His example informs our search for new leaders, unconstrained by the status quo, encouraged to think big without fear of being wrong, but with an eye toward real-world impact.
