Innovation is the modern economy’s fuel. As the primary source of new technologies, products, services, and practices that yield value, innovation is what creates new industries, makes existing ones globally competitive, and sustains economic growth and improved societal well-being. To encourage innovation capacity growth, the Institute for Emerging Issues and nine other statewide Partners have launched InnovateNC, an intensive two-year, cross-city learning collaborative supporting five North Carolina communities — Asheville, Greensboro, Pembroke, Wilson, Wilmington and the Carolina Coast—as they expand their innovation economies.
Cindy Thompson, Executive Director of Boundless Impact, is serving on Greensboro's InnovateNC Executive Committee and as Co-Chair of the Strategic Planning Committee. InnovateGSO aspires to create a culture of inclusive innovation by infusing opportunity and prosperity throughout Greensboro.
