We scan: social radar
Our social radar scours, searches, and interprets data and insights to identify underserved populations and the many barriers that keep them from work.
Objective: to identify the highest innovation potential for underserved populations with the objective of developing insights and recommendations for the Social Innovation project pipeline and the Foundation's research agenda.
The Innovation Foundation’s Social Radar uses a combination of public, proprietary, and social data feeds in order to generate the right insights needed for the Social Innovation Lab.
Our Braintrust is a group of experts with solid experience working with data and a deep understanding of the challenges that underserved populations face. They represent geographical and thematic diversity of insights, which helps to enrich the work we do. We get together regularly to evaluate the data, share knowledge, identify potential weak signals, and develop a possible direction to move in for creating solutions.
