The Workers Lab Innovation Fund seeks ideas that build power for workers, by altering the relationship between working people and the systems and institutions that impact their lives. 

Our cash award of $150,000 provides leaders with money to experiment with new solutions to problems faced by working people and to test new approaches to building worker power in the 21st century economy. 

To date, The Workers Lab has supported over 20 projects by investing more than $2 million. 

We seek ideas that will consider:

  • Potential to be expanded and/or replicated in different geographies, industries, and populations.
  • Potential to change conditions and bring meaningful change to the lives of working people.

We are especially interested in ideas that consider innovative ways to achieve the above through thoughtful revenue generation strategies and/or by effectively leveraging non-profit, for-profit and/or public sector partnerships.
