Innovation Management Group

The Innovation Management Group’s work in the Office of Innovation and Technology concentrates on building an innovation infrastructure within municipal government to solve urban challenges in new ways and ultimately improve the services that we provide to our residents. Through its Innovation Academy, Lab, and Fund, the City emphasizes people, place, and process and develops its own capacity for seeding and implementing new ideas. The innovation management portfolio also includes procurement advocacy, digital inclusion, and the City of Philadelphia’s US2020PHL STEM Mentoring Program.
