The Innovation Scout Program

Every year, Equal Innovation employs Innovation Scouts from around the world. Our Scouts are graduate students, and some amazing undergraduates, from the best universities in the world, including the Ivy League, IIT’s and other renowned institutions. Using tools provided by Equal Innovation, the Innovation Scouts identify new startups, scientific research breakthroughs or social programs, interview startup founders and evaluate the potential of innovators and entrepreneurs for our partners in the foundation, impact investing and government sectors.
