Expand the 'rebel movement' (e.g. to the field of education)?
It may be a bit off topic, but I can imagine that other topics/fields (than corporate organizations) could also benefit from some 'rebels'.

But, we are always open to new exciting opportunities - and always willing to share interesting stories of rebels (wherever they are) from fields beyond business.
