Playground for 
Imagination

I worked with seven graduate students to assess the critical factors  for social innovation to thrive in NYC. We used different research methods such as literature reviews, interviews and a design-led workshop where we engaged social entrepreneurs, non profit agents, and other social innovation enthusiasts.

Vehicle for 
change

The research was aimed at mapping out the resources needed to support social innovation in NYC.  We determined opportunities, trends and challenges for NYC to become a hub for social innovation.  Based on the findings we generated a set of recommendations to our client The Centre for Social Innovation.
