Welcome to the Hito Institute Where Innovation Begins With People
(An Initiative of Women's Startup Lab)
The Hito Institute’s mission is to unleash the power of individual creativity and potential within corporations and create a united force of visionaries and change agents (the next generation of leaders), who embrace challenges and implement new innovation solutions.
WE ARE the Hito Institute, delivering all of the transformative capabilities of Women's Startup Lab to innovators around the world.
YOU ARE a corporation, government, innovation hub or other organization.
Countless organizations like yours have engaged with Women's Startup Lab over the past six years.
They saw our results first hand - - the mindset shifts, the transformations, the breakthroughs and the ROI that those results generated.
And they asked us,
"Can you do that for us?
Can you show us how to be more entrepreneurial?
Can you bring that innovative mindset that we've seen you unleash in female entrepreneurs to our innovators and to all of our business leaders?
Can you show us how to source the broadest set of ideas from a diverse group of individuals as you have done with your accelerator?
And so, to meet this demand, we launched the Hito Institute.
And with our track record of proven results serving top Fortune 100 corporations and governments around the world, we have a very clear answer to the questions that all of those institutions asked us, and that you may be asking as well...
Yes, we can.
