The Impact Lab is a workshop space utilizing the design thinking process for social enterprise entrepreneurs to bring their Design Challenges, and for the community to co-create together toward actionable solutions. It’s a gathering of people from a variety of industries around a single question with the goal of encouraging, supporting, and advancing projects designed to rally and serve our neighbors. By applying asset-based, justice-focused principles in a design lab setting, we can develop sustainable, human-centered solutions to the problems impacting our city.
