Prototyping and developing
It is specifically dedicated to the in-depth study and the realization of previously developed ideas. Social innovators and managing authorities can build out specific elements of the solution to test. Prototyping in social innovation involves identifying specific elements or touchpoints of the service to understand the feasibility and desirability of the solution. After prototyping and re-iterating needed specifics, the solution is ready to be developed and deployed at scale.
Cash flow process
Testing solution and amplifying
Once the idea has been implemented, social innovators will test the solution to understand its level of functioning and efficacy. Social innovators and policymakers have the task of making the solutions recognizable by larger audiences and giving them higher visibility, verifying the possibility of moving towards new socio-cultural and geographic contexts.
