A “Laboratory for Civic Improvement”

One definition of innovation is “the act or process of introducing new ideas, devices or methods.” Now thanks, in part, to an increasingly active Innovation Program, it can be said that Montgomery County is in the forefront of innovation.

To realize the variety of topics and fields involved in the Innovation Program – subtitled “Montgomery County’s Laboratory for Civic Improvement” -- just take a look at the program’s homepage. Examples of projects in the works range from a Food Data Jam, to the County’s first designated MakerSpace, to a Kitchen Incubator Request for Proposal.

See the wide array of innovation projects that are “in progress’ now.

And, check out this 20-minute video that highlights how innovation is serving our families, our businesses and our community.
