Institute for Innovation leads ACT-IAC Initiative on Success Case Studies

The SBA story above is the first in a series….

The Institute for Innovation is partnering with ACT-IAC communities and government partners to share actionable practices and innovative approaches from which others can learn and adopt. The Case Studies highlight approaches to “move the needle” and drive successful change. Have you or others you know found ways to break through long-standing barriers? To fundamentally change the way your organization operates? Adopted new technology that has changed the nature of work and achieved new business results? Please let us know - we welcome input on projects of this nature for future Case Studies!

Initial Case Studies will include:
