Seeking real-world solutions
IDE examines the benefits and opportunities from advances in technology and digitization in economies, societies, and lives. Our research and dissemination aim to advance knowledge and help businesses, governments and individuals adapt to a world in transformation. Our work is made possible by the generous support of individuals, foundations, and corporations.
If you are an individual or a foundation, and interested in learning more about supporting the IDE, please contact David Verrill (firstname.lastname@example.org).
The IDE experienced a leapfrog year in 2015. Fueled by new and significant individual gifts, foundation grants, and corporate memberships, the Initiative was able to advance all of our programs — including research, events, education, fellowships, and our first annual Inclusive Innovation Competition. In two short years, the IDE has gone from launch to full function — a testament to our mission and the passionate effort of so many people.
We owe sincere appreciation and gratitude for the support of the individuals, corporations and foundations listed here. Together we are ensuring that everyone enjoys the bounty of the Digital Economy.
