The Innovation and Social Enterprise Lab is the International Planned Parenthood Federation/Western Hemisphere Region’s (IPPF/WHR) platform offering services to women’s health and social justice nonprofits who would like to become more sustainable in the delivery of their social impact missions. We offer a range of social enterprise services, including:
Our goal is to help your organization build socially focused business models that maximize impact.
We adopt a Social Enterprise approach. For us, this means leveraging successful and proven business and commercial practices to bolster and sustain the social missions of organizations. Our methodology focuses on adapting and reframing these business approaches to the contexts, needs, and realities of nonprofit organizations so that they can find new ways to become sustainable, grow, and maximize their social impact.
We see ourselves as a lab because we embrace experimentation, agility, perpetual learning and lean innovation, and encourage all our collaborators to do the same.
