Innové Studios empowers churches to coach, resource, and launch social innovation ideas in their own communities. In 2013 a church in Edina, MN, piloted the first iteration of Innové, a social venture project that attempted to answer the above questions in a single program. It was a wild success that mobilized 170 professionals within the congregation in order to launch five social ventures that have impacted 29,700 people in the Twin Cities. A second round launched 6 new social ventures. Then the question became if it was an idea for a single church or if it was an idea for the Church. Thus, Innové Studios was spun out as a fully independent 501c3 with the mission to replicate the model in 100 churches across the United States.
