Innovative Solutions

We facilitate the implementation of social innovations to solve critical problems in our communities. We believe in searching for proven innovations, because:

Innovations with proven social impact accelerate the process of change: adapting successful innovations to new contexts can be quicker and more efficient than experimenting through trial-error processes.

It optimizes existing resources: we search for innovations that have a consolidated income model to facilitate its sustainability, and that use solid impact indicators.

It increases the chances of success: proven innovations make good use of the knowledge and experience of innovators, reducing the research and development effort.
