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.

 

We impact and engage the community through:

  • The Websmith team did a great job and were extremely responsive and informative particularly as key deadlines approached. Our lead developer was a great listener as reflected by his adjustments to the product. We also appreciated Websmith’s flexibility in rescheduling calls and appointments due to weather-related closures in both DC and Richmond. We did not experience any loss of momentum to get the project completed.

  • Using Websmith’s software development services we were able to supplement the skill set of our existing in-house programmer(s) and meet our

    deadlines. The development team members are professional and had excellent response times. They were able to keep track of the many projects assigned and they stand behind their work. We would recommend them and are very likely to use their services again.
