What is Local Innovation Works?

Local Innovation Works supports and trains emerging leaders, fosters the creation of living-wage jobs that serve local needs, and funds innovations. We seek to generate equitably distributed wealth circulated throughout our community.

3-year Vision

  • Build the Local Innovation Lab as a resource for job creation and emerging leader development in the Rogue Valley.
  • Develop the Community Investment Fund to build a more inclusive, equitable, and circular local economy
  • Develop community conversation methods to discover local values and needs that the Local Innovation Lab and Community Investment Fund can support

The mission of our first project, the Leadership Innovation Lab, is to empower and support the next generation of community-minded learners and local entrepreneurs as they work together on projects that benefit all community members.
