RADIUS is a social innovation hub based out of the Beedie School of Business, SFU, and located in the heart of Vancouver at the Charles Chang Innovation Centre.
RADIUS builds programs to collaboratively develop, test, and accelerate innovative responses to tough social problems. Drawing on this leading edge work, we also offer training, events and educational opportunities to build collective capacity to respond to the challenges of our time.
Empathy through human centered design, a consistent focus on those with lived experience at the core of what we do, and the humility to realize we usually don’t have the answers.
Rigour through lean approaches to testing and development and a relentless focus on understanding, measuring, and reporting what works (or doesn’t).
Impact as our top priority. We constantly ask ourselves if investing in this work, this idea, this entrepreneur maximizes our ability to drive positive impact.
