Funded by Bloomberg Philanthropies, i-teams function as in-house innovation consultants for city governments. They help leaders and staff implement a data-driven process to assess problems, generate responsive new interventions, develop partnerships, and deliver measurable results.
The Los Angeles Mayor’s i-team is one of 20 i-teams in cities around the country. It works to add capacity to City Hall, designing and implementing new approaches that improve quality of life for L.A. residents. The Los Angeles i-team’s first priority is inclusive neighborhood revitalization, working toward higher neighborhood engagement and less displacement of long-time residents and local businesses. Projects and additional priority areas will be announced throughout 2016.
