Many public and private organizations continue to struggle with innovating in the area of sustainable development. Teams across different geographies often work in silos. The lack of transparency and poor knowledge transfer often brings different groups to reinvent the wheel. Relevant experiences are not shared across organizations, causing a deficit in peer-learning and collaboration.
Babele offers an all-in-one digital workspace to manage innovation programs and engage large stakeholder networks in idea generation, strategic planning, business development, rapid experimentation, online advisory, and peer-learning. Babele is specialised in developing innovation frameworks and digital tools aimed at engaging large stakeholder networks in co-developing innovative and sustainable strategies and business models - without letting the process degenerate into chaos. Their software supports innovators in the co-development of sustainable strategy by combining open business modelling with e-learning and crowd-mentoring. The platform is also used to run idea incubation, startup acceleration, and intrapreneurship programs.
As a social enterprise, Babele provides digital services to social innovation programs based in developing countries, at a discounted price. Moreover, they run accelerator programs that are targeting innovators spread across the global south.
Babele aims to become the global digital ecosystem for social innovation. It already hosts sustainability-driven programs from Stanford University, Google, Impact Hub, UNDP, the World Economic Forum, the World Food Program, etc. and a global network of impact ventures spread across 116 countries. The plan is to grow its existing network with 100 new impact innovation programs by the end of 2023.
