Institute for Social Innovation

The Institute for Social Innovation (formerly called the Lewis Institute) and Babson Social Innovation Lab helps students and stakeholders to create social, economic, and environmental value simultaneously.

Lewis Institute approach

Our promise is to inspire action for creating social innovation, which we define simply as any activity that advances one or more of the UN Global Goals—the most important unmet economic and societal needs of our time.

We seek to create better outcomes for business and society by reimagining relationships of all kinds and providing experiences and resources to activate changemakers.
