Phase I: DISCOVER
The Discover Phase is an exciting time where you get to engage with stakeholders and better understand their current and future systems. By thoughtfully recruiting the right stakeholders, you can gain valuable insights into their experiences, identify gaps and opportunities, and leverage available resources for creating positive change. With the right people on board, you can design solutions tailored to the ecosystem’s unique challenges, taking into account multiple systems and how they interact with each other. By truly understanding the dynamics of these systems, you can identify ripe opportunities for innovation and change, unpack the enablers and barriers in the innovation ecosystem, and create a call to action that activates stakeholders to respond with new, effective solutions. This collaborative approach ensures that you foster systemic transformation that benefits everyone – especially local innovators and vulnerable communities. So let’s get started and discover the exciting possibilities that lie ahead!
Recruit the Network »

Map the System »
Next, your goal is to create a better-shared understanding of the system, particularly where change is possible and where efforts have the most impact.
Define the Challenge »
With more insights into the system, you can now select areas of focus and co-create the challenge or problem statements where you’d like to see innovation.
