Innovate For All
Innovate for All is a cohort-based program supporting innovator, entrepreneurs, non-profits, and hybrid organizations with active projects that generate scalable social impacts and sustainable economic opportunities. Support for projects ranges from project funding, Innovate for All program management, marketing and promotion, and connecting with current and alumni Innovate for All projects. In addition to project support, funded projects will participate in a cohort program featuring joint learning opportunities, networking events, and access to our Inclusive IDEAS community.
Innovate for All projects focus on industry verticals ranging from healthcare, agriculture, education, social services, economic opportunity, to connectivity, inclusive entrepreneurship, technology access, and more. Competitive projects should have a clearly defined project plan and scalable proof of concept with financially sustainable social and economic impacts that can expand to serve multiple regions across Georgia and beyond with a focus on the people and places that are often overlooked as hubs of innovation. The impact of Innovate for All projects has been recognized across the country and serve as a model for other states in addressing similar barriers and challenges.
