innovation ecosystem

Build capacity

We believe that economies are easily shaped and influenced in their infancy, so we start by supporting entrepreneurs and the ecosystems around them. We do this by engaging participants and organizations through a mix of innovation programming (hackathons, incubators, accelerators), supporting ecosystem development, and designing and distributing investment funds.
ecosystem Mapping
Our process of understanding innovation ecosystems is based on deep and purposeful engagement with actors within each ecosystem. We do this by applying a mixed-method approach that draws on sociological, anthropological and design research techniques. These efforts result in a “diagnosis” of the ecosystem, identifying both strengths as well as opportunities to leverage additional value within the community of innovation.
Ecosystem Development
Once an underlying picture of the ecosystem emerges, we then collaborate with actors within the ecosystem to design programs aimed at strengthening the innovation community. Drawing on our cross-sector experience, our trainings build more innovative, effective organizations from the ground up. Workshops include Human-Centered Design, Agile for Government, Community Engagement and more.
