Strengthen the Innovator’s Ecosystem
The first phase of the initiative includes the pairing of Westchester based and outside innovators with local organizations to create short term innovation teams. This partnership allows the innovator to test commercially viable innovations in real-world settings and allows Westchester organizations to see first-hand the types of innovation emerging in their industries.
This phase identifies a model municipality and pairs it with a group of innovation experts to outline a 10-part practical innovation implementation plan. The goal is to help the municipality pinpoint day-to-day changes that are needed and provide an easily implemented action plan that will deliver economic activity, cost savings, and
improvement to the lives of its residents.
Planning Futurist and Implementation Guide
This phase is focused on developing a plan for what is needed to attract and retain innovators over the next five, 15 and 25 years. This will include practical, hit-the-ground-running actions needed in zoning, financing, planning, and infrastructure.
