The Social Innovations Institute & Lab™ takes participants through a process of innovation that transforms both emerging and established leaders and their companies into sharper, smarter, better versions of themselves. The Social Innovations Institute & Lab™ is an intensive sustainable innovation process that includes idea exploration, testing and plan execution to hone entrepreneurship and innovative thinking skills while developing, and eventually executing, new or improved business models.
Through interactive workshops and curriculum modules, participants from a variety of disciplines will imagine, refine, and pursue their own enterprises and innovations to solve social problems. They will learn from experts with real-life experience and research knowledge how to create social sector market opportunities, design new business models, and attract both seed money and sustainable funding from philanthropic and government sources.
Our virtual lab framework provides participants with the tools and knowledge in the form of lectures (concepts) and modules (self-study practice) directly into the hands of social innovators across the globe. The Feedback and Certification options allow for expert and peer feedback on an individual/teams respective development stages of a social enterprise allowing for social idea evolution. Social Innovations Partners provides face-to-face 1-3 Day Social Innovations Labs and 6-8 session Labs over 2-4 months. However, even though face-to-face is the ideal setting to incubate social enterprises, the limitations of geography have demanded a virtual lab framework. By putting the tools and knowledge into the hands of social innovators across the globe we will build the capacity for more SOCIAL innovation changemakers who WILL change the world.
