GrantBook is setting up GrantBooks labs. Our laboratory will run through different scenarios that most grantmakers and their networks face. From a systems perspective, we’ll scrutinize every aspect of collective impact, impact investing, knowledge sharing and work force planning, to name a few. We expect 90% of everything we try to fail. But the 10% of things that do work, we expect game-changes.

GrantBook is always testing different configurations of technology and approaches to grants management. Borrowing terminology from the software community, we A/B Test nearly everything we do. GrantBook is particularly excited to tackle the growing and real problem of Shadow IT (the not-quite officially approved software your colleagues are using to get their job done). GrantBook has a number of tools and approaches to help take the fear and trepidation that comes with Shadow IT.
