The Urban Innovation Exchange (UIX), an initiative funded by the Knight Foundation, showcases and advances Detroit’s growing social innovation movement. While I was at Data Driven Detroit (D3), which serves as the data partner for UIX, I acted as Project Manager of the UIX project. The project team created a survey to better understand innovators’ backgrounds, their projects, their support network, their perception of Detroit, and what they require to be successful. We then analyzed the survey data and the innovators’ support networks. Network analysis was done using Gephi.
My Roles: Project Manager, Data Design and Development, Survey Design and Implementation, Data Analysis, Data Visualization, Blog Author.
I wrote the following Insights for the UIX blog:
