The mission of our Community Innovation Programs is to foster innovation where it matters most, to change the profile of “innovator” and to create a world where the people most impacted by broken and dysfunctional systems are empowered to create and own the solution.

Websmith Studio offers a community-based innovation program where technologists come together with community leaders to solve real-world problems. The Community Innovation Program directly engages a community of students, technology stakeholders and educators with community leaders to make deliberate strides in creating products and enhancing services that can directly impact the quality of life within our community.

We intend to change the profile of “ innovator” to include not only entrepreneurs and technologists but community stakeholders leading in the areas of education, community development, health, civil rights and human services. In doing so, we create a world where the people most impacted by broken and dysfunctional systems are empowered to create and own the solution.
