A SHARED JOURNEY

A NEW MILESTONE

Milestone Labs was born of a simple idea and a shared frustration. We saw so much time and energy invested in incredible social innovation events, but were always left with the same question:
What happens the day after? 


By focusing on defined, researched and validated social challenges and combining our experiences leading multidisciplinary collaborations, we aim to bring together those who live with challenges and those with the skills and resources to help design solutions. 

 

Social Innovation is Good Business

Beyond “simply” doing good, socially responsible organizations demonstrate powerful brand differentiation, see reductions in costs, and maximize employee & volunteer engagement and retention

A SUITE OF
360° SERVICES

Milestone’s commitment to effecting real change means that we offer a variety of frameworks, custom-designed for the particular needs of each and every client - whether it be a foundation, organization, institution, or corporation.

 

Our wide range of expertise and experience enables us to guide our partners through the entire development, implementation, and maintenance processes.
