Programs

The Goal

All of our programming drives toward building an economy that is more just, dynamic, sustainable and resilient. 

What we offer

Incubation support, social innovation lab expertise, capacity building programs and connected community to pave the way for transformative ideas to create systemic change.

RADIUS is currently running social innovation lab and venture incubation programming in four thematic areas: Refugee Livelihood Lab, Health Promotion Lab, First People Enterprise Accelerator Program, and Future of Work Lab

The RADIUS Fellowship is Metro Vancouver’s preeminent professional development opportunity for top emerging social innovators from across the region. During the intensive 4-month experience Fellows build relationships with their peers, develop personally and professionally, and tap into the broader social innovation and social entrepreneurship ecosystem

The RADIUS team has developed significant acumen in social innovation and design thinking. Our Customized Workshops and Trainings help professionals and institutions to apply principles in social innovation, design thinking and systems change to develop new ways of thinking and working in service of positive social change. 

The RADIUS Hub is a shared workspace in the Charles Chang Innovation Centre where social innovators and entrepreneurs can rent space, participate in learning opportunities and grow their network.

RADIUS leads SFU Change Lab, a hands-on, cross faculty intensive undergraduate course that equips students to build solutions to pressing social challenges. The Map the System Challenge invites students from all faculties to explore, research, and present a social challenge they deeply care about. The Social Innovation Seed Fund, a partnership with Embark Sustainability, offers up to $1,500 in funding to innovative student-led initiatives with social or environmental impact at their core.
