We are a nonprofit social innovation studio that exists to help people solve our city's toughest challenges.
We believe that anyone with an idea to make our city better should have access to the tools and resources to act on that opportunity, and we are here to help. We help people develop and test their early-stage ideas so that they are prepared for growth. Our support takes many forms: classes, funding, coaching, and sometimes hands-on project management of people-centered community initiatives.
Social change should not be restricted to the leaders who are already well-connected. We believe that any person, in any neighborhood, who has an idea for social change should have access to the resources and the tools they need to act on that opportunity. In fact, we believe that people experiencing a problem first-hand often have the best insight into how to solve that problem, so we work hard to make sure that resources are available to anyone who wants to make change in their own community.
Because of that, we get the chance to meet tons of passionate people who are doing amazing things for our city. Most of the time, these are not the people in the spotlight. They are the people rolling up their sleeves, working tirelessly in their neighborhoods and communities to create lasting change. Get to know a few of our favorites.
