It’s called social innovation and it’s happening all over Madison. Social innovation can be a product, an idea, a principle, a movement or even a piece of legislation. The 2015 M List captures thirty-five dynamic innovations that emerged through collaboration among businesses, nonprofits, education centers, government agencies and socially minded groups.
