“Social innovation is the broad mission, but for Innovate Memphis, the process is what really makes the whole endeavor unique in the city.
In 2011, Bloomberg Philanthropies awarded Memphis a three-year grant to establish what then was called the Mayor’s Innovation Delivery Team. The city was one of five Pioneer Cities nationwide chosen to participate in what was the largest private-sector investment in social innovation in U.S. history.
The work didn’t stop when the grant ended. In fact, today that organization is known as Innovate Memphis and it’s charged with developing and delivering bold ideas that Memphis can implement to address some of the city’s biggest challenges.”
