The innovation lab is a collaborative platform to work across government, business, philanthropy, research centers, non-profit organizations and citizens. This is a platform to achieve significant and lasting social change in creating inclusive environments and assistive technology products.

The Marketplace for Accessibility needs, where the solutions reach to the end user. This is similar to the online retail marketplace, expect here instead of products the consumers shop for accessibility solutions. When solutions are not available or are not suitable, this is fed back to the Solutions factory as a new requirement.
