The Innovation Mission: Fighting Poverty with Big Ideas
Through The Innovation Mission fellowship pilot of 2017–2019, we invested in five passionate Clevelanders who have significant experience in their fields. We gave them the time and support to bolster their ability as innovators who can test and develop solutions to tough social problems. The fellowship gave them the opportunity to think differently, for the benefit of Cleveland’s poorest residents.
By opening up this problem-solving approach to individuals in the community, we hope to create a culture of innovation that supports idea-testing and risk-taking to find effective, impactful solutions.
