Off the Shelf of l’EWBibliothèque

Venture map2

This is a must read for all EWBers! As EWB has shifted its focus away from programs and more to ventures, the traditional structure of our organization has evolved.  Ventures would follow a trajectory, an incubated systemic innovation (or ISI in EWB-speak) path, which results in exiting the EWB incubator. For a visual of the incubator, click here. At National Conference 2013, a good number of ventures were pitched and their respective leaders/champions sought the EWB network for feedback. Since Conference, the Strategy & Investment team evaluated in which ventures EWB would invest money and staffing. This post goes through the selection process, criteria and rationale, and of course the chosen ventures!

The diagram above taken from the EWBibliothèque post shows the areas the ventures operate and where they overlap with each other. It’s a powerful reminder how systems do not operate in vacuums!
