The Innovation Initiative application period is here!


Recently, we kicked off the 2016 Innovation Initiative (i2) cycle at UCSD’s Sanford Consortium, showcasing the work from past i2 winners and educating the packed house in attendance about the potential impact of the i2 in the community.

From the opening comments to the closing Q&A session two hours later, attendees were treated to educational, engaging, and inspiring presentations courtesy of the past Innovation Initiative awardees.

If you couldn’t make it to the event or if you couldn’t join our livestream, you’re in luck! We captured it all for you, and we’re hosting it on our YouTube channel for you to watch at your convenience. Watch the presentations in full and hear how the i2 influenced the winners’ work in the community here:

If you have questions about applying or about the Innovation Initiative in general, check out the recording of our webinar below. In it, I explain the i2 in further detail, answer questions applicants had about the application process, and give applicants the knowledge and help they need to put together an excellent submission.


I look forward to reviewing this year’s applications to see the innovative, impactful ideas from organizations serving the San Diego and Imperial Counties!

What did you learn from the event? Do you have further questions?
