Innovation Funds

There are now dozens of social innovation funds around the world, and increasingly, innovation agencies are including social innovation as part of their remit. Some seek out and support grassroots innovation (such as India’s National Innovation Foundation (NIF); some carry out R&D (such as SITRA, Finland’s Innovation Fund) and others act as public venture funds, providing seed capital to social innovators (for example, the White House Office of Social Innovation and Civic Participation).
