Our Ideas

There is a difference between a good idea and a good idea that has influence in business, government, development organizations or society as a whole.

EWB Canada helps turn ideas into impact. We convene collision spaces that bring cultures together, make sense of the systems we want to change, provide deeper understandings of problem definitions, highlight bright ideas, test innovations and ripen the environment for change.

Each idea has it’s own path to adoption - there is no template - and our people are adept at identifying these paths, important leverage points within systems, and the steps required the create influence. This might be education, idea “proving”, advocacy or a combination of these tactics. Some of these ideas turn into ventures, others programs, all become vehicles for systemic change.
