Celebrate and Share YOUR Changemaking footprint while at Georgian College!

What is Innovation Capital?

As you participate in various Changemaking events, workshops and initiatives, you earn Innovation Capital, or “IC”. Your IC gets displayed on your Changemaking Profile, which is displayed on our Changemaker Leaderboard.

Why It Is Amazing!

You can use your “IC” for a whole host of different things:

  • Identifying other like-minded Georgian Changemakers
  • Tracking your co-curricular activities and earning digital acknowledgement for your LinkedIn Profile
  • Using your IC for discounts on your own personalized Changemaker swag,
  • Using your IC to apply to attend Premium Event Opportunities like the Social Enterprise World Forum, the International AshokaU Exchange and other incredible networking events
