Urbegi Social Impact Leads the Way in Developing Social Innovation Ecosystems.

The development of social innovation ecosystems promotes effective collaboration between organizations and territories, strengthening the capacity of diverse agents and entities to innovate and generate social impact.

Urbegi Social Impact consultancy acts as a catalyst for collaborations between various actors with the purpose of addressing complex social issues and improving people’s quality of life. Committed to the development of these ecosystems that seek to create positive and lasting change, its director Eva García highlights some of the benefits they provide. Among them, collaboration and innovation stand out, as well as community empowerment and resilience. “By fostering an environment where diverse entities can collaborate and create innovative solutions, we are contributing to a fairer and more sustainable future for all,” García points out.

One of the main benefits of social innovation ecosystems is the creation of effective collaborations between companies, organizations of various kinds, academic institutions, and government entities. These synergies allow each participant to bring their unique knowledge and resources, resulting in more robust and effective solutions. “At Urbegi Social Impact, we facilitate platforms and meeting spaces where these collaborations can flourish, strengthening social and community innovation,” highlights the director.

These ecosystems are designed to foster creativity with a clear focus on social impact. This involves developing innovative solutions that are accessible and beneficial to communities. Urbegi supports projects that transform social challenges into opportunities for positive change, ensuring that each innovation has a meaningful purpose.

A holistic and collaborative approach allows solutions developed in social innovation ecosystems to be sustainable and scalable. This means that innovations can be effectively implemented in different contexts and benefit a larger number of people.

Community empowerment is another fundamental pillar. By involving communities in the innovation process, it ensures that solutions are relevant and tailored to their specific needs, strengthening these communities’ capacity to address their own challenges autonomously and sustainably.

Social entrepreneurship is also a vital component of these ecosystems. “At Urbegi Social Impact, in collaboration with other entities like BBK Fundazioa, we support social entrepreneurs by providing them with resources, networking events, physical and digital meeting spaces, and a network of contacts to bring their ideas to fruition. In this way, innovative solutions that address social and environmental issues sustainably are promoted,” explains García.

In a social innovation ecosystem, the creation of shared value is promoted, benefiting both companies and communities. Initiatives that emerge from these ecosystems seek to generate economic and social benefits simultaneously, creating a positive impact that extends beyond the financial realm. “Organizations that adopt a shared value approach not only contribute to the well-being of their communities, but also enhance their own competitiveness. By identifying and addressing social issues that affect their operating environment, companies can develop new business opportunities and improve their market positioning,” García concludes.

Urbegi Social Impact is a social innovation consultancy specialized in helping corporations find and integrate disruptive solutions to improve their competitiveness and influence, through the promotion of ecosystems and communities that positively impact the cultural, social, and economic development of organizations and territories.
