The Innovation Incubator: Micro-grants and a Culture of Innovation

Apr 06, 2015

The objective of this presentation on the Perkins+Will’s Innovation Incubator program is to explore how relatively small investments in an individual’s or team’s creative ideas can lead to significant results without negatively impacting – indeed, positively supporting – a private design firm’s productivity, profitability, and culture. The Incubator program’s structure, organization, and processes are explained, along with the lessons learned in its first five years of existence.
