Our work drives economic prosperity and financial well-being for all. This vision depends on pulling just the right levers, helping agencies across the country magnify their impact. We use a unique approach that puts the focus on listening to program participants’ thoughts, ideas, and experiences. These personal insights guide our program design in ways that lead to the highest impact. Along with input from the families, we involve agency staff in our design process, ensuring solutions have the buy-in and fit needed to support the sustainability of innovation at all levels of the organization.

We partner with non-profits and government agencies to design and scale solutions that build economic security for families. The Prosperity Agenda is a design-led organization. That means we approach hard problems with curiosity and a determined sense of possibility. It means that we seek out and test our assumptions, look for relationships, search for inspiration, and place a high value on collaboration. We manage the process we use to serve our clients and partners - we measure our success by the lives we change and the experiences we create.
Our commitment to design-thinking and other design practices was the reason we partnered with Navicet, a leader in design management, to create an innovation lab. Our Innovation Lab is a different kind of social design studio, where we apply a highly-refined creative process to solve the most urgent challenges we face in building community prosperity.
At The Prosperity Agenda, we use our experience and expertise to frame compelling design challenges for our Innovation Lab. Through a combination of research, ideation, exploration, testing and iteration, we generates pragmatic, relevant solutions. We breathe life into those solutions by packaging them up for our partners and scaling them to ever-larger populations.
The Prosperity Agenda ensures that the best ideas get even better before we launch them, and that we invest in only the most impactful projects that change people's lives for the better.
