Social Lab brings people together to solve complex challenges. We facilitate social innovation using surprising examples, creative tools and a positive mindset.
Our mobile idea labs can be set up anywhere you want to engage a community or group around a challenge. The lab works both as a real-world creative workshop, and as an effective communication platform.
Idea labs comes with a lab team that engages the audience and facilitates collaboration and exploration. The lab team can also do rapid prototyping and visualization of ideas on location.
Ideas labs are tailored to the occasion. They will often include inspiration tours in the surrounding area or an exhibitions of inspiring solutions.
Inspired by open source tools, our online platform for open innovation lets users share inspiration and build ideas together.
Our online platform is a central part of most idea labs and innovation programs, but can also be used on its own. This is especially useful if you want to reach a large or geographically spread-out audience.
We design and implement longer innovation programs, if you want to set up your own permanent idea labs or educate your own in-house social innovators.
We also setup incubation programs supporting social entrepreneurs with testing and funding of ideas.
