Innovation for the FutureNational Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (NCEI)
“In America, innovation doesn't just change our lives. It is how we make our living.”
President Barack Obama, 2011 State of the Union Address
Entrepreneurship and innovation are the United States’ greatest yield and will be the principle drivers of job creation in the 21st century. The Global Innovation Index indicates that the U.S. rank dropped several points from 2011 to 2012. How can the United States support innovators and inspire the next generation of entrepreneurs?
The National Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation (NCEI) is an organization that seeks to actively support, celebrate and nurture entrepreneurship and innovation in the United States. NavigationArts has partnered with NCEI to help bring their mission to fruition. At NavigationArts, a start-up in 2001, we are passionate about inspiring conversation and collaboration, the primary catalyst for innovation — whether that is innovation within our own craft, inciting innovation in our clients, or supporting initiatives such as NCEI. NavigationArts has donated our time and our expertise to strategically cultivate NCEI’s digital presence.
Establishing a Distinct Digital Presence
With such an essential mission, NCEI required a strong digital presence to prominently announce their debut. NavigationArts designed and built stimulating web and mobile sites to amplify the importance of NCEI as an institution. The design reflects the dynamic, creative and bold statement the Washington institution will provoke in entrepreneurs across the nation.
The new site also acts a place to:
- Tell stories of past entrepreneurship and innovation
- Inspire visitors to volunteer or register to be aligned with the movement
- Motivate potential corporate sponsors to reach out and connect
- Encourage donations to support the ongoing work of NCEI
- Allow visitors to connect with their personal networks and share awareness and valuable NCEI content
- Inform visitors of supporting corporation and affiliated organizations
Across America, millions of entrepreneurs and innovators are in the midst of cultivating projects, building relationships, and creating breakthroughs. NavigationArts is extremely proud to support our Nation's innovation through the development of a digital presence that promotes thought exchange and inspires the future generation of thought leaders.
The National Center for Entrepreneurship and Innovation is an organization that seeks to actively support, celebrate and nurture entrepreneurship and innovation in the United States. NCEI is a leading platform for the exchange of ideas to foster a global, creative dialogue that stimulates innovation. NCEI plans to implement a center located on the National Mall, to act as a focal environment for visitors to fully realize their productive potential. By revealing the untold stories of great entrepreneurs, inventors and innovators, NCEI inspires the next generation to solve challenges across time, language and culture.
