Do you have an idea that could be your organization's next big thing, but you are unsure of what to do next? Innovate DC is a community for intrapreneurs; employees looking to create change and get things done within an organization.

We believe that innovation can happen inside organizations of any size.  All you need is someone with an idea and a champion to help navigate the waters of change.  We offer a support organization for intrapreneurs and champions that will focus on providing content and events related to:

  • How to raise awareness and get sponsorship within your organization
  • How to properly define and develop an Idea
  • Sharing of lessons learned
  • Success stories & solutions
  • Tools that help make the change happen

Our focus is on enabling thought leaders in the Washington Metro Area such as Federal Government Agency Employees, Systems Integrators and consultants with the tools, processes and support necessary to better communicate and validate their ideas.

The group also offers best practices around rapid application prototyping and the visualization process through the following:

  • General Awareness and Networking
    Local Meetup events that bring together like-minded individuals spanning government and consumer markets to share and get feedback on ideas and problems.
  • Innovation Workshop
    A facilitated rapid ideation and prototyping workshop that follows the Innovation Framework of problem discovery, visualization and validation. Workshop participants serve as both idea generators and testers as a visualization expert prototypes an application in iRise.
  • Prototype-a-thon
    Allows attendees the opportunity to pitch an idea to a group of aspiring entrepreneurs. Everyone votes on their favorite idea and we then workshop out two that are selected and prototype them in iRise. The idea owner gets to leave with a better understanding of their application, all of the feedback that was collected from the group and the iRise simulation.

I started the group because there wasn't any other type of group like this. I've met some great folks in the group who have become close friends and have also met some amazing business owners.
