In the two decades since the Army closed Fort Winfield Scott, it has sat empty, awaiting further orders. It is time to reactivate Fort Scott and transform this historic campus into a hub for social innovation that will enable problem solvers from around the world to come together and forge courageous solutions for the greatest challenges of our time.
On a hilltop overlooking the Golden Gate Bridge this century-old former Army post rests in the 1,500-acre Presidio of San Francisco—a national park that ranks among the world’s most iconic landmarks. With a retreat-like environment, a legacy of military service, and a location in the heart of America’s technology sector, Fort Scott’s setting provides a symbolically rich environment for renewal, collaboration, and learning. Fort Scott is a powerful place for entrepreneurs, change makers, and innovators to call home.
