Ideas at Beeck
We are an incubator for scalable, leading-edge ecosystem ideas.
We are incubating new tools, frameworks and approaches to better invest in outcomes. Guided by three key elements that become the lens with which all of our ideas revolve, we view policy as a key tool to help these ideas scale.
Investing for outcomes often means shifting incentives and addressing systemic inequities to achieve lasting change. We aim to right the rules of the game for shared prosperity.
Data + Digital
Scaling responsible data practices and digital service delivery to support the relationships and responsiveness between governments and the people they serve.
We take on a select number of projects, ideally with learning partners, that are focused on delivering outcomes. We use the tools of fair finance and data + digital. We start with financing for outcomes. We believe data is critical to deliver on outcomes, and we understand how data is collected and from whom matters. Most importantly, we want to ensure civic voice is embedded in decision-making and the evaluation process. The fair finance and data + digital portfolio help us build new models for investing in outcomes. Scale is critical for success. All of our projects fall into one of three stages that show our intentionality toward scaling these efforts.
Stages for Scale
A three-pronged approach to scaling social impact.
We want to test, incubate and scale what works. We believe failure is just as important as success.
We surface leading-edge ecosystem ideas and models that could achieve outcomes.
We incubate ideas to help them scale, by taking the initial risk, creating models, and catalyzing others to help scale.
We identify and collaborate with partners and networks to move the idea forward outside the Beeck Center.
