Insight Labs convenes groups of problem-solvers from all industries to tackle issues about education, social investment, and design.
Through their work, they’re creating a new model for social impact innovation, cherry-picking from the most effective methods of corporate and creative culture, and tapping the potential of smart people—plucked from boardrooms and cubicles—to collaborate on solutions to global challenges by applying fresh eyes to a problem. On their website, they describe themselves as a “love child of a think tank and a flash mob for good.”
Insight Labs is best known for its day-long workshops, or Labs. An organization provides a problem, and Labs figures out who the best people to invite to a problem-solving session are. “We don’t pull together subject matter experts. We pull together people that are successful in other fields,” says Leitner, “with the belief that if they solved complex problems in their world, then they can be useful in solving it here.”
