MUNICIPALITIES LOOK INTERNALLY
The City Hall Incubator will inspire creativity, entrepreneurship and strengthens early-stage “civic ventures.”

Under leadership of Mayor Libby Schaaf, the new City Hall administration embraces problem-solving and civic engagement as fundamental to a purposeful service and essential to healthy communities. 

The City Hall Incubator will serve as the platform from which city employees and entrepreneurs are able to launch and scale new ventures that inspire, equip and mobilize city service providers to drive positive change.

THE OPPORTUNITY   
Today, we face increasingly complex social problems with limited financial resources. All traditional institutions – government, business and nonprofit – have to do more with less, creating a growing demand for engaging people in problem solving. To truly solve today’s City Administration’s complex problems, we need breakthrough ideas that are scalable, leverage technology and engage people in new and different ways.

  
THE SPACE
The City Hall Incubator will be dedicated to providing resources, education and professional development to City staff.  Key incubator infrastructure will include:

  • Conference facility
  • Idea Wall Zones
  • Central Open Collaborative Workspaces
  • Coffee Room and other support amenities


This is a space for people to build their skills.  This is a space where we share knowledge, lend a hand, and give feedback.  Our goal is to foster a sustainable collaborative work environment right here in City Hall.
