Following the success of the Innovation Theatre at National Convention, the Institute of Fundraising has launched an Innovation Zone.
Hosted on the IoF website, it will regularly showcase exciting and ground-breaking new companies, products and services that have the potential to inspire more people to give and grow fundraising revenues.
The Innovation Zone is targeted at corporate supporters with great new ideas that are likely to excite the sharpest minds in the sector.
Adam Bryan, director of partnerships at the IoF said: "Innovation should be at the heart of great fundraising. We would like to recognise the new breed of game changers, risk takers and those that are not afraid to swim against tide. These individuals and organisations are tapping into new and exciting ways of raising money that may only now be a seed of an idea but have the potential to inspire more people to give and become part of our everyday life."
Lucy Gower, innovation director at Clayton Burnett and one of the judges, said: "If we are to survive in today’s rapidly changing world we must be able to respond quickly to the changing needs of both our supporters and beneficiaries. Innovation is a business strategy to respond to change, solve problems, spot opportunities and drive ideas forward. We can’t afford not to innovate."
So if you think you can influence the future of fundraising, if you are a corporate supporter and you would like to put your company in front of some of the brightest and most forward thinking people in the sector, then check out the Innovation Zone’s quick link - http://goo.gl/Aid2X - or contact firstname.lastname@example.org to get involved.
