Amplifying Innovation and Prosperity for All

The definition of inclusive innovation: improving access and opportunities for all Georgians to drive innovation and creating an opportunity for all of us to thrive together as part of the innovation ecosystem. Inclusive innovation includes geographic, racial, gender and socio-economic equity.


Innovation, Opportunity and Shared Economic Success

Our mission is to catalyze innovation, opportunity and shared economic prosperity through public-private partnership.

Our programs impact not only the urban and suburban centers of Georgia, but also the rural areas of the state - places that are often overlooked as hubs of innovation.

Our Guiding Principles

Promote open innovations that drive inclusion and growth

Catalyze economic mobility for a more resilient and equitable future

Unlock the promise of innovators who have traditionally been shut out

Activate untapped potential by catalyzing collaboration among the next generation of innovation leaders

Establish Georgia as a tech capital of the East Coast and model for inclusive innovation

Our Unique Approach

Our model is a unique combination of four hallmarks. First, we are a public-private coalition that have galvanized long-term commitments across public and private resources. Second, the Partnership serves all of Georgia from urban centers to rural communities. Third, our definition of “inclusive innovation” increases access and expands geographic, racial, gender and socio-economic equity and opportunity for all. And finally, we use a hybrid model that combines grantmaking with hands-on program operation.

Our Four Key Pillars

Through our four pillars, we provide social and financial capital to scaled programs, research, technology and services; and mentors the next generation of innovators who can navigate public private partnership for shared economic success. Each pillar has active networks, fluency to respond to emerging opportunities and a flagship program of innovation.
