Development of CE#BOT "Growth Algorithms" and industry frameworks that build a more effective roadmap to wealth creation in minority and underserved communities.

Community Innovation

An organic “Innovation Community” proof of concept is developing across the country by a set of organizations.  Aligning in part through specific partnership algorithms that couple institutions and people that have an interest in researching, producing and using workforce systems that marry human capital to high growth high demand ICT jobs and entrepreneurial opportunities.

Innovation in Motion

Innovation in Motion is part of an industry focused, design based, applied research framework that studies how best systems connect and improve in public good ecosystems.  Workforce systems are best envisioned with stakeholders including employers.  Industry allows for multiple businesses and community partners, all sharing in the outcomes.

Given the great number of Minority Technology Companies (estimated at 65,000 employers with combined annual revenues of $100 Billion), leveraging geography, our joint capacity to scale and our capacity to agree, will ignite new capabilities transforming this already fast-growing marketplace into a powerhouse of job creating opportunities.

The Council Exchange Board of Trade (CEBOT) is mission driven to provide our members with the kind business value that increases both profit and success.  CEBOT’s membership is intentionally diverse and includes government, K12, higher education, non-profits/NGO’s and business large and small with a focus on the Minority Technology Industry.

Unlocking our Human Potential

Use Innovation for Good

The Knowledge Economy has arrived.  We now communicate with each other digitally with ease.  The promise of the 21st Century rests in our joint ability to connect citizenry and  critical and creative thinking to how we connect and serve the common human agenda.

Technology has become more than a tool to perform a duty.  It is now a way to connect with each other, share ideas and friendships, and vision the future.  Enabling innovation in a social networking framework requires governance and trust.  Our Design Based Research explores how data and process allow for scalable growth.

21st Century's Emerging Economic Imperative

Aligning economic choice with core human values  disrupts status quo and builds a sustainable business ecosystem.  Future profit ventures that focus on both customer and community needs  will prove most competitive.

Market Based Approach

Industry Governance Solutions
for  Social Network Systems

Many aspects of the world economy are determined more by corporate action than government control.  Research indicates a growing need for industry perspectives and solutions to externalities and social safety nets that harmonize profit to measured outcomes for the common good of people and planet.
