The 2021 Nonprofit Innovation Lab, an initiative of United Way of Rhode Island and Social Enterprise Greenhouse, is a selective six-month program that will offer up to 10 Rhode Island nonprofits the opportunity to transform innovative ideas into reality, enabling them to create even more social impact as they bring innovation and entrepreneurial thinking to their organizations.
The program will provide participating Fellows with the knowledge, resources, and networking opportunities that make it possible for them to deliver these transformative solutions. A culminating pitch event in November 2021 will award a total of $90,000 in prizes to support the three most compelling innovation projects.
The application and supplementary documents will take approximately 2 - 4 hours to complete.
There are not word limits on short answer questions but you are encouraged to be as concise as possible.
