Innovate - Relay Foundation

Innovate

Like a relay race has four legs, the Relay Foundation consists of four primary programs. Each event can be seen as a leg of a race. The first leg of the race is a collection of educational events that we call Collaboratives. Each Collaborative gets future social entrepreneurs the team, the tools, and the technique that they need to launch a pro-community venture.

And though each Collaborative is slightly different, they will always follow a definite path that we know turns great ideas into high-impact community businesses. This is because of our amazing Partners, our tried-and-true curriculum, and access to amazing event space through the region’s top universities, incubators, and co-working spaces.
