The Urban Innovation Lab supports the development and advancement of meaningful and measureable urban innovation that improves the lives of under-served residents of the National Capital Region.

The Center for Urban Innovation harnesses the innovative power of cities to make them great places for all of their residents, especially those in underserved neighborhoods, to live, work, connect, and flourish.  In our vision, cities are places where entrepreneurs, innovative non-profit actors, and public officials work alongside people from underserved communities to solve long-standing urban problems.
