United Way’s Social Innovation Center was created with the next generation of social entrepreneur in mind. Designed for emerging nonprofits in the health and human service sector, the space is great for organizations with innovative ideas and creative approaches to helping people and communities. The co-working community offers an open and inspiring work environment with light drenched windows, contemporary design, and the latest in technology features. Amenities include high speed WIFI, business services, kitchen & lounge privileges, and a swipe-and-carry meals.
Networking with like-minded social innovators can lift your organization and advance your work. Whether it be ideas for funding streams, service delivery, corporate engagement, or generating scale, as new members join, you’ll find a network of quality sounding boards nearby. One of the center's first groups brings a new approach to strategic data sharing in the field of fundraising, employing some of the best and brightest minds in that space. Imagine sharing a coffee station chat with someone that could bring a new perspective to your thinking, provide a networking connection, or offer a key idea that could lift your work.
The Social Innovation Center is located in the United Way Worldwide building, at the corner of Madison and North Fairfax streets in Old Town Alexandria. If you are an emerging nonprofit in the health and human services sector, or have an inventive idea for improving lives and communities, we would like to invite your organization to apply.
