Innovate Memphis

In late 2011, Bloomberg Philanthropies awarded the city of Memphis a 3-year grant to establish the Mayor’s Innovation Delivery Team. Memphis is one of just five Pioneer Cities nationwide chosen to participate in this unique opportunity – the largest private-sector investment in social innovation in our nation’s history. Now known as Innovate Memphis, the organization is charged with developing and delivering bold ideas that the city can implement to address some of Memphis’ most pressing challenges.
