Innovacracy.org is still in beta but its change-making capabilities have already kickstarted. The goal is to support academic innovators, such as researchers and social entrepreneurs who are students, in their endeavors.
Universities, in today's skills-based economy, are sometimes seen as operating within a vacuum, especially where the humanities are concerned, however, the concepts that float around campuses have the potential to turn into "real life" projects. Thus, it's important that research has the ability -- and the opportunity -- to create on-the-ground impact.
So far, Innovacracy has partnered with the following education institutions in New York state: the University of Rochester, Cornell University, Rochester Institute of Technology and Clarkson University.
With Innovacracy.org's crowdfunding network, you have the ability to both sponsor innovations and submit your own, and do your part to making cool, progressive ideas a reality.
