AD3 Innovation Bootcamp



Innovation Bootcamp, a partnership between Alphawood Foundation, Gaylord and Dorothy Donnelley Foundation, The Richard H. Driehaus Foundation, and the City of Chicago’s Department of Cultural Affairs and Special Events (DCASE), seeks to cultivate unconventional thinking to address chronic problems faced by small arts nonprofit organizations. The partnership is known by the acronym AD3. The Innovation Bootcamp process was piloted under the guidance of Greater Good Studio with an initial cohort of grantees in 2016.
